Marcus Slaughter Makes Decision Fast

The 6-8 power forward, Marcus Slaughter from Riverside (Calif.) North, burst on the scene this summer -- and just as quickly has made a commitment...

According to good sources, Marcus Slaughter, 6-8 SR PF, Riverside (Calif.) North, has verbally committed to San Diego State.

Having burst onto the scene from complete obscurity in July, Slaughter has been one of the hottest stories of west coast recruiting. He had college programs immediately recruiting him at the beginning of July. Schools such as Oregon, Oregon State, USC, Pepperdine, Washington and New Mexico showed interest. Louisville's Rick Pitino sniffed around.

Slaughter, though, reportedly took a visit to San Diego State and verbally committed to the Aztecs Friday.
