Update on Trevor Mbakwe transfer situation

Charley Walters wrote in his column today that Trevor Mbakwe will be staying at Marquette. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had reported a couple of weeks ago that he might be leaving (see what I wrote about it then) Unlike his teammate Scott Christopherson (2007 Wisconsin Co-Mr. Basketball) who asked for and received his release. Christopherson played here twice in the 06-07 season for La Crosse Aquinas in wins over Rockford (Border Battle) and a loaded Woodbury team with Max Hintz (East Metro Showcase)

Some of Charley's text is below

"Former St. Bernard's and Henry Sibley basketball star Trevor Mbakwe, who considered transferring from Marquette after his freshman season this year, has decided to remain with the team. The Gophers were expected to pursue the 6-foot-8 forward if he had made himself available.

Former St. Thomas Academy and Gophers basketball center Bryce Webster, headed to Utah State, might have another Minnesotan, guard Stavon Williams of Minneapolis Roosevelt, as a teammate. "

Williams would also be a nice pickup for Utah State as he was a dominant wing scorer in his Roosevelt days leading the Mpls City in scoring his senior year if I remember correctly.
