Marcus Derrickson is a 6’6 sophomore who is considered a top 20 prospect in the class of 2015. After watching Derrickson at The City of Palms Classic and the Team Takeover National Hoops Festival it’s clear that he has more to offer than your usual 6’6 interior player.
While Derrickson is comfortable banging inside with the big bodies, he can also step outside and knock down threes on a consistent basis. Paul VI uses Derrickson’s shooting ability to their advantage by running him off screens for shots at the elbows and on the baseline. Derrickson is a good shot blocker and rebounds the ball fairly well. If he can add a couple inches or become more explosive he has the potential be an elite college prospect. Derrickson currently has offers from Indiana, NC State, Georgetown, Maryland, Miami, Villanova, Virginia Tech.
