Creighton was able to ink 6’1, 170lb PG Marcus Zegarowski today after he made the announcement of his commitment on twitter.
Zegarowski had offers from Minnesota, Ohio State, Washington, Arizona State, UMass, some school called Rutgers, and Pitt, among a handful of other mid majors.
During his recruitment, in which Creighton was a major player from start to finish and had him as a priority player. From a Rivals article in August, Zegarowski said:
"The coaching staff has been recruiting me the hardest and have really showed that I'm a high priority for them. Coach (Preston) Murphy and I are really close, and I had a great visit there when I took an unofficial visit earlier this year. I liked the campus life and feel comfortable with their playing style."
Marcus possesses an advanced shooting stroke, is a score-first point guard, and comes from a basketball rich family. If he’s able to condition well and learn McDermott’s system he could be a potent offensive choice off the bench his freshman year, as the Jays will likely feature Kaleb Joseph and Davion Mintz at point next season. A redshirt year isn’t out of the question, either, as the cupboard will be relatively bare after Joseph’s departure. He also joins SF Christian Bishop and PF Ian Steere for the 2018 class.
His one official visit came last week in Omaha which followed with his announcement to choose a school earlier today, leading to wildly accurate expectations that he’d be a Jay by the end of Labor Day.
Zegarowski is the younger half-brother of Michael Carter-Williams, a Syracuse grad and current PG for the Charlotte Hornets.
Here’s a mixtape by Buzzer Beater Basketball from last year, showcasing his abilities with some music I guess:
