Last Word on Marks


Class of 2011 Plainfield Central star Derrick Marks of Old Gold remains a red-hot commodity on the recruiting trail. Marks has added new interest from a pair programs, and just wrapped up his last unofficial visit. Marks ranks as one of the top Class of 2011 prospects in the state of Illinois.

Marks, a 6’2″ guard, enjoyed his visit to Western Michigan. “First we talked to the president of the school and we talked about their school. He was very excited that Western was recruiting me. Then I talked to the academic advisors and the president of the business school. They have a very well known and strong business program that is recognized around the country. Also, Coach Hawkins has a 100% graduation rate and he promised me that I will get my degree.”

“On the basketball side I will be able to step right in and play. They play my style of play, which is up-and-down and in your face basketball. They are a contender in the MAC every year. They just got Hayden Hoerdermann as well, and we are both playmakers, so I can really see myself playing that system.”

Marks remains a red-hot commodity on the recruiting trail. “It’s going really well at the moment. Butler is really hot on me right now, and Nebraska has stepped in as well along with Boise State, Fairfield, Valparaiso, Texas Christian, Colorado State, Southern Illinois, Toledo, Indiana State, Bradley, and now Western Michigan, so everything is going really well at the moment,” said Marks.

Marks is still evaluating his options, and looking to see if any other new schools are going to jump into the mix. Marks plans on signing in November, and expects to only take official visits to schools from this point forward.”
