Bartley Gets SLU Offer On Visit

2014 PG Marcus Bartley informed that he picked up an offer from SLU during his official visit. He spoke with about how the visit went.

Decatur McArthur point guard Marcus Bartley visited Saint Louis officially this weekend and came away with an offer.

"It was great," he said. "I was able to get an in-depth look at what they had to offer."

Bartley played pick-up with the current team, took in a class, and generally spent time getting to know the team and coaching staff.

"I'm close with all the guys on the coaching staff," he said. "They're all cool."

He also got a chance to hang out with the team and get to know them.

"Austin [McBroom] was the one showing me around so I guess I feel closest to him," Bartley said. "I was just impressed with the amount of knowledge [the players] had.

"Also, they have a great facility and I was just overall impressed," he said.

Creighton, where his parents attended school, is also showing serious interest, but Bartley isn't ready to call it a two-horse race.

"That's not how I'm thinking about it," he said. "I'm just going to sit down with those close to me and talk about either making a decision on committing or holding off."
