Default How did Wade land at Marquette?

He's one of a very select few of NBA superstars that didnt come out of HS or go to a great college... how did he end up at Marquette? I know he didnt have the best grades, but coaches can pull strings to get someone if they really want them.

Even Illinois couldn't nab him in their own state?

Default Re: How did Wade land at Marquette?

from what i hear and read, he did terrible at school, he went to richards high school which isn't a highly touted bball school they're more known for football, although he was a pretty good player but not outstanding, and richards as a team wasn't all that great, he was ranked in the top 100 in the nation tho somewhere in the 60-80 range, my ex-gf went to the richards and she's the same age as wade and she told me wade was a rockstar at that school they already had posters of him everywhere so... i dunno! but academically he was a problem at that time

he also sat out his freshman year at marquette and i also heard he went to europe (wasn't sure if it was bball related) and he DRASTICALLY improved his game during that span also, tom crean and staff does a great job of recruitting rough gems out of chicago also, wades my favorite player on the planet

Wade wasn't in any Top 100 that I know of. He was maybe a little underrated coming out of high school but he wasn't a terrific prospect.

Illinois didn't recruit him for the same reasons everyone else besides DePaul, Marquette and Illinois State didn't. It was more or less known he was going to be a Prop 48 and unlike Frank Williams- who was a Prop 48 two years before, and it wasn't as widely known that he'd be one as it was with Wade- he wasn't an elite prospect.
