First year head coach Buzz Williams inherited a team full of talent and experience but faced a tough future with four starters set to graduate in the spring.  In response, Buzz came out fighting by putting together a Top 20 recruiting class (per Rivals), headlined by three Top 100 players.

Jeronne Maymon
SF / 6-6 / 235lbs / Madison, WI
Ranked #46 overall and #8 in position by Rivals.
Was also considering Iowa State, USC and Baylor.
ESPN labels him as an all-around player and states he will be an immediate contributor at Marquette.  Hoops Report says he is "a player that was strong enough to bang inside, yet skilled enough to play either guard spot; an effortless scorer that was an equally dominant defender."

Junior Cadougan
PG / 5-11 / 185lbs / Toronto, Canada
Ranked #60 overall and #10 in position by Rivals.
Was also considering Memphis, Wake Forest, Louisville and Tennessee.
ESPN likes his quickness but worries about his ball control.  DraftExpress likes his strength but states "[he] isn’t going to blow anyone away with his physical attributes, as he’s not particularly big at 6-1, and really isn’t very athletic either."

Erik Williams
SF / 6-6 / 190lbs / Katy, TX
Ranked #99 overall and #25 in position by Rivals.
Was also considering Baylor, Alabama and Texas A&M.
Williams gave a verbal to Marquette in 2007 and stuck with the program after the departure of former head coach Tom Crean.  ESPN reports that he is very skilled and, has good size and can shoot the three well.

Dwight Buycks
SG / 6-2 / 180lbs / Milwaukee, WI
Not ranked by Rivals.
Was also considering Memphis, Kentucky Tennesse and Illinois.
He originally committed to Bradley for the  2007 season but failed to qualify academically.  He spent two years at a JUCO and has two years of eligibility remaining. ESPN states that he is an all-around guard and has good range on his threes.

Brett Roseboro
PF / 6-10 / 220lbs / Quakertown, PA
Not ranked by Rivals.
Was also considering Temple and Villanova.
An interview with his high school coach reveals that other programs recruiting Roseboro wanted him to redshirt for his freshman year.  He is not a highly touted recruit although the coach say Roseboro's greatest strength is his versatility.
