Fit is often the most important factor in selecting a school. In Tutu’s next and final stop of his collegiate career at the DI level, he is seeking an opportunity to compete somewhere in the NCAA that suits his uptempo style and play making ability.

“Playing in transition, I know that I’m great at making the right decision and making a winning play. I can really help a team that loves to run a lot, play fast. I’m looking for a place where I can go and contribute and earn trust with the coaching staff for me to have the ball in my hands and make plays for my teammates.”

The maturity in his voice and how he’s carried himself over the years is evident. Since his high school days, he’s been known to be a kid with integrity, a high character that also boasts a GPA of 3.2.

Although he saw his minutes fluctuate at LMU, Tutu never let it affect his game and his coaches would say the same.

There is no “ill will” or “bad blood” between Coach Dunlap, the rest of the coaching staff and Tutu. In fact, they see eye to eye and respect the decision.

“Coach Dunlap molded me into a man over the past two years, he cares about me as a man. On the court, I’ve learned to play at different speeds, yet I need to be in a situation that compliments my style.”

Tutu will need to sit out one year according to NCAA DI rules, but the team who ends up recruiting Tutu will be pleasantly surprised at the improvements he’s made with his body, shooting and decision making on the fly.

    Oh lordy, go back to hyping your prep league.

    You had this kid as a top five recruit in his class, said he was going to shine.

    Turns out he couldn’t play on a bad team in a mid-major conference with three good programs.

    I’m sure Chris Oliver and the Windsor Lancers could use a point guard with Mike Rocca entering his last year.

  2. Truelife says:

    The west coast conference reminds these players of what a “true” mid major conference is…..the best division 1 players….for their age group…in the world.

  3. Ziggy Stardust says:

    The number three ranked recruit in the class of 2015, according to this site, had a sophomore slump after averaging 4 ppg and 3 apg in about 20 minutes a game as a freshman.

    Not sure what a coach will like about alleged improved shooting ability considering he shot 25 percent from distance, 61 percent from the free throw line, and under 40 percent from the field.

    Let’s hope the paid content on here is better than the free stuff.

    First, Munis is one of the best point guards to come from Canada. He’s played on the national team and got heavily recruited out of one of the best prep schools in the nation.

    Second, why in the world would he go to Windsor which is subpar school. A team that didn’t even make it to final 4 this year? If anything he should go to Carleton or Ryerson.

  5. BALLISLIFE says:

    Ziggy has a point about him going to windsor. If he could play at the mid-major how would he get time time at Carleton or Ryerson who beat top D1 programs. He would be better suited for programs that aren’t as good as those two, so lower ranked programs like windsor, mcmaster, toronto, laurier, etc. Obviously he would need to find a good fit with his style of play. Hope he finds the right fit to keep advancing canadian bball!

    1. Canada hoops says:

      Ziggy has lost his mind. Both of Carletons points guards came from mid majors. Ryerson is losing they’re best guards. So him playing down to his competition like those schools wouldn’t be the right move. He will stay D1 because that life is just so much better than the CIS life.

  6. Jim Thomas says:

    A change of venue is not always the answer for a highly touted prospect like Munis. His career has appeared to stall at Loyola Marymount and while that is reality would he do better some where else. Division One basketball is loaded with kids who have transferred from one school to another with mediocre results. I wish him well in his quest but the grass is not always greener on the other side.
