Remember Vander Blue?
He's the Class of 2010 standout who decommitted frrom Wisconsin last May and became the focal point of a message board war that he acknowledged bothered him. I wrote a column about him at the time; you can click this link to read it. And I only mention it again now because the 6-foot-4 guard committed to Marquette this weekend, meaning he went from one rival to another, and he knows it.
"It was tough, decommitting from Wisconsin and then turning around and committing to Marquette," Blue told Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel . "That's like me going from Duke to North Carolina. You know there's going to be some tensions, regardless. But at the end of the day, I've got to do what's best for me and my family, and that's what it was."
(Note to self: Make sure to attend Blue's first trip to Kohl Center.)
Scout.com rates Blue as the 27th-best prospect in the Class of 2010.
