Duquesne Offers Mike McGuirl

Jim Ferry and his staff are looking to bring in four players for this year’s recruiting class and last night they offered another talented player.

Mike McGuirl is a 6-2 shooting guard from East Catholic High School in Manchester, Connecticut. With the addition of Duquesne, McGuirl now has over 15 offers, including ones from Virginia Tech, Kansas State,  Florida Gulf Coast, Northeastern, George Mason, St. Bonaventure, Penn, Siena and Vermont.

Setting young men on the path to a better future.

This afternoon, I contacted McGuirl and asked him about this latest offer and and his thoughts on the Dukes.

“The offer is really exciting because it’s a good program in a great league,” said McGuirl. “The offer didn’t come out of the blue because I had been talking to their assistants for a while.”

What do Division 1 schools see in McGuirl? An unnamed college basketball talent evaluator told me that “Mike is a strong player that has steadily made improvement throughout each year of high school.”

McGuirl told me that his biggest strength is “shooting the ball with range and getting to the rim.”

“As far as the Duquesne offer, I’m definitely interested in them, it’s a great program that excites me,” said McGuirl. “I have a couple of visits set up (unofficial visits to George Mason and Hofstra plus an official visit to Kansas State) and I’m currently trying to set up one to Duquesne.”
