This one surprised me because I thought he had to stay for two years because of a problem with the NCAA Clearinghouse — but Hutchinson Community College combo guard Darius Johnson-Odom has signed with Marquette, where he’ll have three years of eligibility remaining. DJO is a 6-foot-2 wunderkind. Dude can do it all and seems like he has it together off the court. Averaged 21.6 for the Blue Dragons this season and was one of the most sought-after juco guards in the country after a first-team all-league and Jayhawk West freshman of the year campaign.
So, you might ask, how does this affect Steve Eck’s reclamation project at HCC?
Not much, if a certain Wichita-loving guard can get a transfer waiver …
