Big news coming out of Milwaukee as DJ Carton will be eligible this season for the Golden Eagles, Marquette added D.J. Carton from the transfer portal and he’s eligible to play this season. Carton played his cards right, he said on Instagram last week Ohio State pushed him out and he didn’t want to leave, Do I believe that Chris Holtmann pushed one of his better players out? Absolutely not. Did it happen? Probably not, but did Carton play his cards right. He also missed most of conference play due to Mental Health problems, which is a very serious issue and needs attention when you feel that way, I can certainly relate. I predicted he would get a waiver, and I’m glad he did he’s a great player, great person he’s just all-around great and he’s someone we need in our game without-a-doubt. He’s going to replace Markus Howard big shoes to fill but he averaged 10.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game last season. He’s a very good player and will show it in the Big East this season. Here’s there lineup heading into next season.
