Which one would you choose ? Never heard of either one . I'll add links below for stories on both . Marquise Pryor was being recruited by many to name a few OSU , Kansas St, and Xavier . Then in April he was arrested for carring a concealed weapon . Funny thing is all or near all of the schools kept recruiting him . Then on 9-10-2012 he was arrested yet again for the possesion of a hand gun . He hadn't even went to trial on the first charge . Currently he is serving time in Cook Co. boot camp . Scheduled to be released in Feb. 2013 he will have no record . The kid at 6'7 amd 225 is a rebounding and shot blocking machine . One article I read called him the best rebounder in Illinois . He claims that he will graduate with his class in 2013 . A few facts to consider there have been several hundred shootings in Chicago this year . Gangs own the streets esp. where he lives and the cops can't or won't protect you . With his size one could see how others would view him as a threat even without a gun . Simply put he lives in a world most of us myself included can't imagine . It is a war zone ! But the law is the law .
Then comes the other side enter the Mitchell brothers 3 deep . All start and play for Ft.Wayne Wayne Hs . They are undefeated at 3-0 with Justin the clear star of the team . Their father a youth worker in Ft. Wayne was murdered in June by someone who broke into their home and shot him . No arrest have been made . The boys now live with an Aunt and Uncle . All of them are Purdue fans . All are in the 2014 class Justin and Jescus are twins the third is Levi less than a year older . Justin is currently averaging 25 points and 12 rebounds per . He is drawing colleges into watch him play including Butler and X . I have no idea if we are in on him . But it is safe to say no one in the region will be over looked by us . Add the fact that all are great students and citzens to their profiles . And it would seem as though Justin is the clear choice . But considering the enviroment for Pryor is he ?
