Guard Still Open
Marcus Hammond's Memphis East team is off to a 4-1 start. Their only setback was a one-point loss to Memphis Fairley.
"I'm averaging about 15-16, somewhere around there," Hammond said. "I'm shooting it fairly well. My inside game is going good. My stroke from behind the arc is coming."
William & Mary will be in town on Friday evening to watch him play. UNC-Wilmington is staying in touch with him. UAB writes him and continues to recruit him. Wyoming recently contacted his high school coach.
At this point in the season, Hammond knows that a big senior year will ratchet up his interest from prospective colleges. So, we asked him to take a few sentences and describe what colleges that come see him play can expect. Here's what his advertisement would read.
"6-2 shooting guard with nice touch behind the arc and a good feel for the game. Can play both positions and works very hard. Therefore, has potential to be a great guard. Runs hard at both ends of the court. "
There you have it, one of Memphis' finest tells you exactly what to expect from him.
