6-5, 227-pound shooting guard/small forward prospect Marc Egerson made an unofficial visit to one of his favorite schools this past weekend.
“I was at Virginia Tech over the weekend,” Egerson said. “It was unofficial. It was great. I loved it. The campus was nice. I talked to the coaches. They told me about their program and that they would like be to be a part of it.”
Egerson is receiving heavy interest from Georgia Tech, LaSalle, Maryland, Ohio State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Xavier. He claims verbal offers from all except Maryland. Right now, Egerson has 2 of those schools at the top of his list.
“My top 2 is Maryland and Virginia Tech,” Egerson said. He’s visited both schools already. “I just feel comfortable with both of them.”
Up next in the recruiting process is setting and taking official visits. Egerson wants to have a decision made by the November signing period.
“I plan on making a couple of official visits,” Egerson said. “After I make them, I should know where I’m going to go. I’m trying to set up visits to Maryland, George Washington, Virginia and Virginia Tech.”
Egerson had contemplated attending Hargrave Military Academy and then Lutheran Christian. He has finally settled on Berean Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, because “of the academic part. I read some things I liked about their academics.”
Delaware Player of the Year last year for Glasgow HS in Newark, Egerson believes he projects as a two-guard on the next level.
“I’m a good shooter from mid-range,” Egerson said. “I play nice defense. I try and play like my favorite player, T-Mac. I’m going to be a 2 on the next level. It’s what I’ve been working on for the past 2 years. My former coach told me I’d have to play the 2 in college, so I had a head start in working on that. I’ve improved my ball-handling to make that happen.”
