11/19/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Germantown (Memphis), TN Marcus is an athletic (5'8"/140) catcher who has a solid all-around skill-set. With the bat, this righty steps into the box looking to swing it. He gets good separation on his load and fires the barrel quickly to and through the zone, connecting with some pop. Behind the dish, Marcus sits in well with quiet/athletic actions. He tracks pitches into a soft mitt and frames well. Throws to 2B are accurate coming from a quick/clean transfer, pop times as low as 2.34. Continuing to work on the following will aid in his development on the diamond.
Offense 1. More lower 1/2 drive 2. Contact points 3. More extension through contact Defense 1. Blocking 2. Lateral quickness 3. Arm strength (long toss)
