Shaver starting the process

6-foot-1 Phoenix St. Mary's point guard Marcus Shaver is one of the best players in the state. Read on for an update on his recruitment and more.

One of the best players in Arizona regardless of class is 6-foot-1 Phoenix St. Mary's point guard Marcus Shaver.

Shaver was the second youngest player to participate in the Pangos All-American Camp and admits that it took him some time to get adjusted.

"I started off kind of slow because I am not use to this camp atmosphere," Shaver said. "Guys don't pass a lot, but it was a good experience playing against good competition and helps me get stronger."

It is difficult for point guards to succeed at Pangos due to the style of play, but Shaver likes to consider himself a true point.

"I am a traditional point guard," he said. "I can also get my own bucket and shot, but I like getting my teammates involved."

Shaver may be young, but his recruitment is starting to pick up and includes a few visits as well.

"I took an unofficial visit to UCLA and then I also took one to Arizona State," he said. "I am hearing from Grand Canyon, NAU, UCLA, and Arizona also."

As Shaver goes through the process, he has an idea of what he will be looking for in a school.

"I am looking at the education and who is on the team," Shaver said. "I want to make sure I will be able to play well with my teammates and that I will also be well coached."

Shaver is currently not thinking of making a decision and is currently focusing on improving his game.

"I'm not sure when I will decide, but I am not in a rush," Shaver said. "I just want to keep working on getting stronger and becoming a better point guard."
