2003 Target: Marquis Webb

TEANECK, NEW JERSEY -- Marquis Webb, a 6-4, 180 pound junior shooting guard from Paterson Catholic H.S. in Paterson, N.J., will play this spring and summer for the T5T Playaz Club. Webb helped the Playaz win the Spring Fling this past weekend at a tournament held in two different locations in the state of New Jersey.
Webb told the Insiders Report/ that he is open in his recruiting process. But he is very interested in Syracuse, Villanova UMass, N.C. State, Virginia, UConn, Seton Hall, Louisville and Kentucky.
Webb is enjoyed a solid junior campaign for the Cougars, averaging close to 20 points a game, four rebounds, four assists and two steals per game.
Webb is a very intelligent player. Webb uses his long, lanky frame to score well on the break. He is a streaky shooter from the perimeter, and if Webb is going to make the transition to the one slot, he will need to improve his handle.
Webb has become well known on the spring and summer circuit in the past few years playing with Jimmy Salmon's T5T Playaz program. Webb plans to attend the adidas ABCD Camp and Five-Star Honesdale II Camp.
He attended both of those events last year as a rising junior. He prefers to shoot short-midrange jumpers off the dribble, but is more of a catch and shoot threat from beyond the three point arc.
