Kately Has A Leader

Marquis Kately announced his presence at the Big Time in July while playing with Oakland Slam and Jam. Now, he says he has a leader but the recruiting process is moving along slowly.

Cal Leads For Kately

San Francisco (CA) Reardon small forward Marquis Kately says he has a leader. "Right now, Cal is my No. 1 choice," Kately said. "Actually, I just had a home visit. California was just in."

Kately said he isn't sure of other schools on his list and that his recruitment is moving forward but slowly. There's no questioning his basketball skills and athleticism, it's his academics that need to be taken care of.

He says he came up a little short on his previous test score. "I want to do better. I was just below it and I am going to classes and I want to try and do good on the test. I'm going to hang in there. I should be able to pull through."

Last year, Kately averaged 21 points. He's a big-time athlete who scores off the bounce and often times will play above the rim. He's a good-looking college prospect and ranks among the Top 100 players in his class.
