Ginyard eager to get to the Hill

In his last season of summer ball prior to college, Marcus Ginyard learned plenty. He learned that his experiment as a point guard is still a work in progress. He learned that he still needs to get stronger. He also learned that he'd like to step foot in Chapel Hill – soon.

"I'd love to be going there this season," said the Bishop O'Connell (Va.) senior guard. "I'm really excited about going there, but at the same time, I want to savor my last high school year."

Ginyard is doing his best to relax and vacation over the next couple weeks before his senior year begins on Aug. 28.

"This was the last summer for you to find your niche," Ginyard added. "To figure out what's your strength and what you need to work on in the last year before you go to the next level. It's an eye-opener because you're running out of time."

"Coming out of the summer, I know I need to hit the weight room," he continued. "A lot of people are so strong these days. I also realize I need to continue to work on my flexibility and agility. On the court, I just have to let the game come to me and not attack it so much. Don't force things."

Ginyard said the player who impressed him the most over the course of the spring and summer was clearly Georgia-bound 6-2 guard Louis Williams. However, he mentioned Richard Hendrix, the 6-8 Alabama native who is choosing between the Crimson Tide and North Carolina, as a close second.

Ginyard said he has continued to remain in contact with fellow UNC-commit Bobby Frasor. The pair roomed together at ABCD Camp.

"I love his game and can't wait to play with him," Ginyard said. "Looking at him, you don't think he's one of the best players on the floor, but he sees the floor so well and is such a good shooter."

"I'm hoping for the best with Hendrix," he added. "Everyone knows it's between North Carolina and Alabama. Tyler (Hansbrough), to me, seems to be leaning towards North Carolina – but we'll see."
