SHARE Busy weekend: Shumpert visits Marquette and Liggins breaks his foot

Also a recruiting update on Jacobs star John Moran…

Washington guard DeAndre Liggins, considered the top prospect in the class of 2008, broke his foot Friday at the Bob Gibbons Tournament in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. He’s expected to miss six weeks, which means he could be ready sometime during the all-important month of July, which features the shoe company camps and the big shoe company tournament week in Las Vegas.

Oak Park guard Iman Shumpert spent his Memorial Day on an unofficial visit to Marquette. The fast rising guard is also being recruited by Illinois, Notre Dame, Bradley, Wisconsin, Clemson, Georgia Tech and Northwestern.

According to Scout.com, Jacobs guard John Moran will take an unofficial visit to Butler on Friday. Northern Iowa and Dayton are also in the mix. Word is that Moran will decide soon.
