Cardozo Senior Has Some Division One Looks

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a look at the individual game and regular season progress of Marquis Barnett, a senior forward prospect from Cardozo High School in Bayside, New York ...

Marquis Barnett, a 6-foot-7 1/2, 230-pound power forward/center from Cardozo High School in Bayside, New York is a player head coach Ron Naclerio believes will be a very good division one college basketball player someday.

"He is much more confident this season," said Naclerio. "He has more post moves and is better defensively."

Naclerio said Barnett is averaging six points, 13 rebounds and seven blocks per contest. "He's been better offensively over the past couple of weeks," Naclerio said. "He is becoming more confident with the basketball in the low post."

Obviously, Barnett is a game changer type of player on the defensive end. He is very active and can distrupt the opponent's interior offensive game.

"Quinnipiac, St. Francis of Pennsylvania and Marist have been showing interest in him," said Naclerio.
