Class of 2014 Decatur MacArthur point guard Marcus Bartley has continued to see his stock rise. He had a great summer with the Peoria Irish 16U running the show. Bartley has always had that “it” factor ever since he was a freshman at MacArthur. He never gets rattled and makes plays for others.
College coaches have taken notice as he has picked up several offers in recent months. This weekend he added a new one courtesy of Bradley.
“I went on a visit after my fall league game. The coaches showed us around the facilities and campus. Then we watched a highlight film and after Coach Ford pulled me aside and said he was offering me a scholarship.”
What did he enjoy about the visit?
“The practice facility is really nice and impressive. I really enjoyed talking with the coaches. They’re really cool to be around.”
The coaches told Bartley what they like about his game.
“My ability to play fast and create plays.”
