AAU Coach Evaluation:Marcus is a gamer, the bigger the game the better he plays!' He's not afraid to take the big shot and is a high percentage shooter with range!' He's also a crafty defender.' Marcus will make an immediate impact on the varsity level.'' Coach Mike Holland, Boo Williams/Donald Hand AAU

Coach Frank says: Marcus is a very skilled and disciplined player and one of the best shooters in Virginia's 2020 class.' He scores at all levels and hits at a high percentage.' Marcus has impressed at either the lead guard where he is a crafty playmaker with a tight handle or off the ball where he moves well without the ball, knows how to create space and scores in both the catch and shoot or using the pull up jumper off the drive.' He has a great release on his shot and textbook form.' He has very good ball handling skills and can get to the rim but is also a high IQ floor leader with great vision and sound passing skills.' Marcus plays with great enthusiasm, brings energy and impacts games on both ends of the floor.' He is a scrappy guard who will get on the floor for a loose ball or battle inside for rebounds.' Marcus is a catalyst and enjoys competing!' He is one of the more skilled and court savvy players in the 2020 class and his upside is tremendous.
