Marcus is a stocky, strong OF who has a promising future on the diamond. He shows some solid speed with a 60 time of 6.98. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying outstanding hitting abilities with well above average power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work to and through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields, and shows a feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. In the OF, defensive abilities are well above average as he utilizes his quick feet well in his lateral movement, displaying range. He works to get behind balls but needs to play through more with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate with carry to his target. With 2 years to further develop, Marcus has potential and will get looks from collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
