As further proof that college coaches are keeping a close eye on the young, up and coming talent in the state, Columbus’ Marcus Johnson (6’3/WF/2020/South HS) recently received his first D-I scholarship offer from Maryland Eastern Shores. Johnson, an extremely athletic wing, is explosive, plays above the rim and is a highlight just waiting to happen. In this past weekend’s Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase, Johnson was once again a standout, as he led Team Ohio in scoring against the Michigan All-Stars. Johnson later played his way into the final all-star game on Sunday. Johnson began attending Buckeye Prep events this year and excelled; consequently, his stock as soared. Congratulations to Johnson, as we’re sure there will be many more offers in his future!
