Robb Vogel talked to Vander Blue's mom as well. Good summary of Monday's events.

It's all over Badger fans. The long, sad recruitment of heralded Madison Memorial star Vander Blue came to an end Sunday when he announced he will sign with Marquette during the November early-signing period.
Having originally given Wisconsin his verbal commitment, Blue backed out last spring and re-opened his recruiting after a solid junior season that brought him attention from basketball powerhouses all over country.
This is a huge blow for the Badgers, who have now lost out on four recruits in just over a month and a half. Two of those recruits -- Diamond Taylor and Jeremy Glover -- were already enrolled at UW and set to join the team this season. Nnanna Egwu, a 6'9 junior forward from St. Ignatius College Prep in Chicago verbally commited to Illinois earlier in the month and Blue chose Marquette Sunday.
Rob Schultz (Cap Times) has an update on Vander Blue's chances of joining the UW men's basketball team.
Make sure you read all the way to the end. He includes a ridiculous e-mail from Jeronne Maymon's father claiming Maymon never talked to Blue about joining him at Marquette. Right... I'm sure two high school teammates never had any conversations about playing together in college.
