For Cohen, There's No Place Like Home

Sandy Cohen-2014

Sandy Cohen, a 6’6” shooting guard, has known for awhile that Marquette was the place for him.  The Wisconsin native made it official today when he tweeted:

“Officially committed to Marquette it has been my dream since I can remember! Making dreams a reality #MUBB.”

Cohen grew up cheering on the Golden Eagles so it was a dream come true for him to receive an offer from head coach Buzz Williams in April.  Despite receiving interest from over 20 schools due to an impressive AAU season, Cohen knew where he wanted to commit. 

Cohen attends Seymour High School where he averaged 16.6 points and 7.2 rebounds per game during his junior season.  He is ranked 70th in the class of 2014 by ESPN. 

Cohen has the repertoire to excel in Marquette’s system.  Williams loves to play guards that are interchangeable and have the ability to score, run the floor and make plays.  Cohen’s length and athleticism allows him to get tips on the ball and push it in transition.

Although his strength is his smooth jump shot, he has handles like a point guard and can rebound with the big guys down low.  His work ethic has showed in his constant improvement over the course of the AAU season. 

He has said that he will continue focusing on building strength before he arrives at Marquette.  Cohen is a multi-dimensional player that is focused on succeeding no matter what it takes.  He is the type of player that can impact a program with his skill set and his commitment to the game. 

Marquette’s 2013 class had two recruits that decided to stay home as well.  Duane Wilson, ranked 53rd by ESPN and Deonte Burton, ranked 39th by ESPN are both Milwaukee natives.

Buzz Williams has reeled in some of the nation’s best recruits from his own backyard.  Marquette’s roster is stacked with athleticism, speed and players that know how to compete.
