St. Louis University landed a big verbal with a commitment from Decatur MacArthur star point guard Marcus Bartley on Thursday night. The 2014 lead guard is among the best at his position in the state and was coveted by many Midwest programs.
He discussed how the commitment went down.
“I had a meeting with my parents and high school coach and discussed everything. The coaches at SLU were just great people who really showed they believed in me.”
Why was SLU ultimately his choice?
“The people in the program are just great people and I was able to get comfortable with them. It is just a great opportunity for me as a person and player.”
Bartley discussed the fit with his new team.
“They like to keep the floor spaced and run ball screens which fits me well.”
This commitment comes just days after Bartley’s official visit to SLU. The talented floor general ran with the Peoria Irish throughout his prep career.
