Might as well put him in the database since it looks like we are in the mix.

Would he start as soon as he's eligable at GW?  Probably a big concern for him since he's transfering for more playing time.  Could he and Larsen be on the court at the same time with Larsen moving to PF?

Hard to imagine him not starting from Day 1.  He is basically exactly what our team needs going forward.  If he is looking for the school that needs him the most, where he would have an instant key role, then it's hard to imagine another team that he could plug into as well as us.  SLU could use a guy like him, but they graduate a ton next year so he'd be joining a rebuilding project rather than a team on the upswing that needs a skilled big.   Our system also fits his talents well.  

1/2/2014 3:30:03 PM - CT Colonial - 143 posts (#126)

Would he be eligible at the start of next season?

1/2/2014 3:48:18 PM - bobo - 3,015 posts (#8)

Both Fischer and Larsen are listed as pure C.  Fischer is said to be able to hit the elbow jumper and is athletic so he could proably play high post to Larsen's low post.  Toledo is a beautiful place in January though,.

i agree with Free. Fischer steps right in the starting lineup.  this would be a big get.

1/2/2014 5:45:17 PM - 198.228.200.23 - 1 posts (#246)

A MAJOR get that would fit perfectly with our 4 super sophs. No question about him starting. The issue is with him being 'homesick' and Marquette having a large opening at the 5 - http://www.verbalcommits.com/schools/marquette

I didn't think GW had a chance with Luke Fischer because he's not from the area, they weren't involved with recruiting him coming out of high school and he wanted to play close to home(Wisconsin), but Mo Creek and the staff have convinced him to consider GW.

CT Colonial, he would probably be eligible to play in December of next year.

Lord, would I love for us to land this guy!

1/2/2014 6:54:39 PM - CT Colonial - 143 posts (#126)

Looks like we're also battling Marquette for Legend Robertin.

1/2/2014 7:13:35 PM - BM - 5,181 posts (#3)

The homesick excuse was always quoted as a rumor and none of the schools listed by Miller are in Wisconsin, so I wouldn't worry about distance. 

1/2/2014 7:15:04 PM - BM - 5,181 posts (#3)

I thought Marquette only recruited linebackers and tight ends. 

1/3/2014 8:07:31 AM - BM - 5,181 posts (#3)

40 schools have contacted him.  Will decide this weekend.

1/3/2014 8:43:05 AM - CPots - 354 posts (#65)

Wow, and the lottery begins... I have to imagine his mind is already made up and it's somewhere he's familiar with if he's deciding this weekend (and not taking visits).

1/3/2014 8:47:48 AM - The MV - 4,539 posts (#4)

Homesick can be translated to mean that Noah Vonleh has been a beast at the center position...over 12 points and 9.5 rebounds a game in less than 23 minutes a game.  Fischer was a 4 star recruit who doesn't want to be a 10-15 minute bench player.

Butler fans not happy about this...

Victory Firelight @ButlerVictory
Take this FWIW: Trusted source telling me Butler is not involved with Luke Fischer. But these kinds of things can change in a hurry.

1/3/2014 3:52:26 PM - igor... not yegor - 272 posts (#81)

One down... only 38 more to go and then he's here.

1/3/2014 3:56:41 PM - BM - 5,181 posts (#3)

hmmmm...

1/3/2014 4:02:27 PM - maypoman - 628 posts (#37)

Not to be too pessimistic but we have never won a recruiting battle involving a player of this quality. Miracles do happen, however.

1/3/2014 4:08:13 PM - BM - 5,181 posts (#3)

Regis Khoundja.  It was a huge coup at the time.

1/3/2014 4:23:34 PM - Grizzly - 61 posts (#186)

BM, that would be interesting if that Faring is out guy knew something about this. On the offchance we get Fischer, how do you think that would impact Larsen's PT? Are we not in greater need of a lengthy forward?

1/3/2014 4:56:36 PM - CPots - 354 posts (#65)

He'd replace Zeke and play alongside Larsen - the 4/5 is interchangeable and we have a huge hole next  year and beyond.

1/3/2014 5:25:51 PM - Alumnus - 2,028 posts (#16)

I don't think you can say Armwood and Larsen are interchangeable.  Armwood gets out on the perimeter a lot, particularly on defense.  The question you'd have to ask about playing Fischer and Larsen playing together is whether one of them would be comfortable defending far away from the basket if they're playing a mobile forward who can shoot.  That doesn't mean we shouldn't sign Fischer if he wants to come here -- being able to play a starter-quality player (if Fischer is that) at center for all 40 minutes is a pretty good thing.

1/3/2014 6:37:13 PM - GCYL89 - 34 posts (#213)

And, not that I think this is happening, he would likely be available for us in conference play next year, as opposed to him sitting out a whole season.

BM: Who? What majors did we beat out to get him?

1/4/2014 10:43:17 AM - CPots - 354 posts (#65)

Now... Has Fischer added any other coaches as friends????

1/4/2014 1:14:26 PM - McScottishPride - 408 posts (#56)

Also added Kopriva as a friend recently...

 

1/4/2014 2:03:55 PM - maypoman - 628 posts (#37)

For the sake of argument, why would Fischer be able to play next year after transferring?

1/4/2014 2:11:33 PM - 71.179.248.153 - 8 posts (#239)

He would enroll at GW for this coming (Spring) Semester and sit out 1 year.  That would make him eligible next January.

above post was mine

1/4/2014 2:16:03 PM - Free Quebec - 5,905 posts (#2)

Would actually be eligible in December at end of first semester.   So probably in time for the tourney in Hawaii. 

1/4/2014 2:38:23 PM - Thomas - 968 posts (#31)

Isn't Kopriva from Wisconsin?? If so, there may be a chance that he played with or against Luke Fischer at some point in high school.

1/4/2014 3:13:31 PM - McScottishPride - 408 posts (#56)

Yes. They are both from WI. But he is a "recent" friend on FB, along with ML, which is interesting... 

Alright. Enough being creepy. Just got to wait and see. 

1/4/2014 4:20:22 PM - CPots - 354 posts (#65)

Decision may come this weekend so get your prayers in now!

1/4/2014 4:32:34 PM - CPots - 354 posts (#65)

I believe BM linked to an article or tweet where he mentioned a decision would be made this weeknd

thanks, I've been looking but I missed it.

If your erection.lasts for.more than four hours, seek medical attention.

...or as my former boss used to say: "if my erection lasts for more than four hours I'm calling my friends".

Hell, man!  If your erection last more than four hours, call everyone you know!

Tweet says he's off to Marquette.  So much for his Facebook friends and twitter followers.

i'm sure this will be painted by some as another ml recruiting failure.

1/5/2014 10:36:21 AM - BACCAS92 - 409 posts (#55)

Long shot but was hoping for a coup or Hail Mary.  Do we play then next year.   We need to get into the new big east or catholic league s

1/5/2014 10:48:25 AM - Pops - 403 posts (#57)

actually, this could mean we are no longer contending with marquette for robertin.  or maybe they jumped on fischer because they had lost out on robertin.  doesn't explain who was at the georgia game though.

1/5/2014 10:54:49 AM - ruge06 - 171 posts (#113)

I am sure he would have been a good contributor and I wish him the best of luck, but my preference from a fit perspective is a freshman and fifth year that can get on the court right away

1/5/2014 3:05:26 PM - FredD - 528 posts (#45)

Damn too perfect a solution to the big of the future problem. A really good big keeps the train rolling and right now that is not a sure thing at all. So far Larson is superior as a feet on the floor compliment to Armwood's interior pogo activity. I love our prospects this year, but I think we are a good big recruit away from a different GW future.

Anyone know if his transfer status is going to change with Buzz Williams leaving for Virgina Tech? I would find it hard for him to stay at Marquette with the coach leaving, unless he transfered to be closer to home.

3/25/2014 11:06:32 AM - gdub - 92 posts (#157)

If he decided to leave Marquette, will he be eligible to play directly next season?

FYI, went 19 & 9 in his first game vs Arizona State,  sigh.
