"DJ has a very high ceiling. He's an extremely talented athlete and a fierce competitor. He put up solid marks last year on limited training. I see him as someone who could rewrite the Marquette record books in the jumps and become an all-American. He will contribute immediately in the long and triple jump. He will be a force in the Big East Conference for the next four years."
