HEAD COACH JASON HOOTEN:
"One of co-captains, Marcus has taken on the challenge of being a vocal leader for the team. He is a hard worker and high energy guy who is very coachable. He's been slowed by a couple of injuries since last year and, hopefully, he will give us versatility inside and out. He is long and athletic and has a great motor. Marcus is a 'team first' guy."
