Egerson Picks Big East School

Marc Egerson, a 6-foot-5 forward out of Delaware, is headed to the Big East. After a weekend unofficial visit, Egerson made his decision.

The state of Delaware has been very good to Georgetown this year. The first commitment the Hoyas took came from Caesar Rodney guard Josh Thornton, one of the top marksmen in the class.

Over the weekend, 5th year prepster Marc Egerson took an unofficial visit to Georgetown and didn't leave campus without committing.

"They got on him early last month," Delaware Sharpshooters AAU coach Duane Coverdale said. "They called me and I told them that he was probably one of the best kept secrets around. He went to Midnight Madness and committed."

Egerson was the two-time state player of the year in Delaware, leading Glasgow High to the 2003 state championship. However, he didn't qualify coming out of high school and was took the opportunity to spend a year at prep school to improve his academic credentials.

"They'll play him on the wing at the two or the three. They'll probably start him out at the 3 [spot] and then move him. He'll definitely be a wing for them, no doubt about that.

"The only thing that he needs to tighten up is his shooting. He sees the floor and he can still go on the blocks and do his damage too. He can get to the rim very easily."

The 6-foot-5 Egerson is currently enrolled at Berean Institute in Philadelphia.
