07/16/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Washington, DC Marcus is an OF/RHP who will graduate in 2021. Defensively in the OF, he takes fluid angles/routes as he tracks down fly balls. He stays low in an athletic position and comes up with a clean exchange and accurate throws to his target. On the mound, this righty gathers over the rubber with a 3-pitch mix. He keeps his eyes locked in, delivers from an over the top arm angle and repeats his delivery. With the stick, Marcus gets back into a smooth load. He swings on a direct bat path through the zone and consistently sprays pitches to all parts of the field. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Quicker 1s step 2. Work behind more 3. Arm strength (long toss) Pitching 1. Be a strike thrower 2. Stronger frontside 3. Finish strong Offense 1. Improve bat speed 2. More lower 1/2 drive 3. Extend through contact
