Marcus Hopper, a 6-foot-9, 240-pound power forward from Holy Cross High School in Flushing, New York, said he's very happy in the way his season is currently unfolding.

He previously told us he was working very hard on both ends of the court, trying to become a more consistent player and making himself available in spots near the basket.

"I'm averaging 10 points and about 10 rebounds per game," said Marcus. "I'm doing pretty well."

Hopper, just a junior prospect and member of the 2011 recruiting class, possesses a nice frame, strong shoulders and improving agility near the rim.

Quinnipiac has shown some recent interest, after watching Hopper compete at a practice and in a game situation.

AREAS TO IMPROVE: The area to watch Marcus this season is in the category of finishing consistently near the basket.

Hopper competes for one of the country's top high school coaches in Paul Gilvary, who works hard on both ends of the court, stressing fundamentals.


"Boston University called my house and my mother heard the voicemail and said that they are going to offer me," Hopper said, updating us with his recruiting process.

Previous schools of interest:

Temple, St. John's, Georgia Tech, St. Peter's, Hofstra, George Mason, St. Peter's, Villanova, Norfolk State University, and Northeastern.
