Hymon has numerous offers

Power forward Marcanvis Hymon has a host of offers from schools all over the country.

Three-star power forward Marcanvis Hymon is a player who is having an excellent high school season. The Memphis (Tenn.) Whitehaven star has improved since the summer, and now numerous high-major schools are working to get him in the mix.

In the class of 2014 one of the most impressive AAU teams is Team Thad, and Hymon is one of the big reasons why. Over the summer he opened up eyes with his play, and since then he has continued to pick it up during the high school season.

"My season has been going pretty good," said Hymon. "We have made it to the district championship, and we have stayed together and are still working. It has been a good season, and we are just trying to get this championship."

He continued, "My game has improved the most with my foot speed. Being an inside and outside four, I knew I had to get my foot speed quicker and improve my skill work."

So far Hymon has offers from Memphis, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Missouri, Massachusetts, Cincinnati, Kansas State, Alabama, Auburn, VCU, and Middle Tennessee State.

While Hymon is currently living in the city of Memphis, he is actually a native of Mississippi, and both Ole Miss and Mississippi State are recruiting him as hard as anyone.

"I grew up in Oxford, Mississippi so I can relate to a lot of things down there," said Hymon of Ole Miss. "Also my grandparents are down there and I have lots of family down there. I just like the vibe down there, and Coach (Al) Pinkins and Coach Andy (Kennedy) are cool down to earth type of guys."

When it comes to Mississippi State, his relationship with the coaches is second to none.

"Coach (Wes) Flannigan and Coach (Rick) Ray are both recruiting me hard," said Hymon. "I have heard a lot from Coach Fannigan. He is a real down to earth type of man. Even though he is recruiting me he tells me what to work on. He gives me more than just recruiting stuff, we talk about everything."

At the moment Hymon is in no hurry to make a college decision, but he does have a pretty good idea of what will be looking for in the school he picks.

"The thing that will probably put one school over the top number one will be the graduation rate, not only with the school, but with the basketball team," Hymon explained. "Also it will come down to my relationship with the coaches and who I can see myself being around and playing for, for four years."
