2018 PG Marcus Zegarowski has proven to be one of the top bucket getters in the country this Spring. The 6’2 junior touches on his huge spring and gives the latest on his recruitment after the jump.
Perhaps no prospect in the country has raised his stock as much as Tilton School (NH) point guard Marcus Zegarowski. The 6’2 floor general has seemingly come out of nowhere over the past 3 months and emerged as one of the best point guards in the country.
“I feel like I have played well because we’re 11-5 and that’s very good for EYBL. I think I bring a lot of good things to my team and I help us win. I think I have proven myself as a top PG in the country.”
Having viewed Marcus live several times this spring, he is a top 10 shooter in the country with the ability to create shots for himself and teammates with his ballhandling and vision. While other names may get more hype, Zegarowski has won a fair share of matchups against some of the top PGs in the country this Spring. Being under the radar doesn’t impact Marcus, his natural competitive nature and passion for the game are enough to fuel his fire.
“I wouldn’t say being under the radar specifically puts a chip on my shoulder. I go in the game and compete because someone else is trying to get what I want and what I deserve and that right there keeps me motivated.”
Zegarowski’s strong play has him in the midst of the proverbial blow-up, as VCU, Arizona State, Creighton, Pitt, Rutgers, Penn State, Minnesota and Washington have all offered within the past month alone. Towson, La Salle, UMass, Hofstra, St. Bonaventure and Old Dominion have all extended official offers as well.
In addition to the aforementioned programs, Marcus reports interest from Syracuse, Gonzaga, George Washington, Fordham, Butler, and St. Joseph’s.
Zegarowski has no leaders at this point, but is looking to take a few visits this summer.
“I want to get to most of the high major schools that offered me for unofficial visits,” Marcus told Endless Motor.
Zegarowski is looking to cut things down in July, while his focus right now is improvements in his game and getting wins.
“No timeline as of now. After July I will cut my list down and start thinking of my future. My focus right now is getting better and trying to win games.”
Marcus is one of the more under-appreciated guards in the country for the 2018 class. His combination of shooting, ballhandling and leadership make him one of the best point guard prospects available.
