Pangos: Six working hardest on 2017 guard Marcus Garrett

CERRITOS, Calif. - Marcus Garrett has six schools recruiting him the hardest. The 2017 guard discusses what he likes about the programs which are after him.

One of the more versatile players in attendance at the Pangos All-American Camp on Friday evening was 6-foot-5, 175-pound Dallas Skyline guard Marcus Garrett.

The 2017 prospect showed a high feel, playing unselfish basketball and constantly making the right pass to teammates. He got to the basket, hit pull-up jumpers and defended multiple positions due to his size, length and feel.

"I get to the basket and I can create open shots for my teammates," Garrett said. "I'm working on my pull-up off the dribble."

Garrett listed six schools that are recruiting him the hardest at this point.

"Kansas, SMU, Iowa State, Oregon, Arizona and Baylor," he said, before briefly discussing what he likes about each of them.

Kansas: "Bill Self is one of the best coaches in college."

SMU: "I love Larry Brown; he coached my favorite player in Allen Iverson."

Iowa State: "I like their arena; they sell out every game."

Oregon: "That's the best Nike school there is; I love that college."

Arizona: "They just offered me and I've been looking at them a lot."

Baylor: "I've liked Baylor since I was really young and it's close to home."

Garrett says he has no leaders but does have a feel for what he wants in a school.

"I'm taking it slowly to make sure I make the right choice," he said. "I want somewhere I can get a good education where the program is like a family and they'll help me get to the NBA."
