Kansas City (Mo.) Hogan Prep guard Marcus Denmon has flipped the script around a little bit with his recruitment. The 6-foot-1, 170-pound guard is doing more evaluating these days instead of being the one evaluated as a prospect. The three-star guard is hoping he can find the answers he is looking for this fall.
Denmon enjoyed a strong close out to the summer with his KC Pump N Run team and helped his club win the Price Chopper tournament in Kansas City and finished 7-1 in Las Vegas.
Now with the games behind him, Denmon said he's looking forward to the next step in his recruitment.
"I'm still open and waiting to see if anyone else is going to get in or offering. I'm looking forward to making my decision sometime soon," Denmon said. "I don't know where yet because I'm still looking around."
Denmon said he is considering offers from Missouri, Iowa State, Kansas State, Colorado, Miami, Creighton, Missouri State and Illinois State. Marquette and Florida State are also looking at him hard, Denmon said.
"At one point in time, I thought I knew what I wanted to do but I had to re-evaluate everything," he said. "I decided that I'm going to be open to everybody. I do have a couple of favorites though because I've developed good relationships like Missouri and K-State. I'm not sure yet what I'll do though."
Denmon said he has yet to set any dates yet with any of the schools on his list. He said he probably won't take all five visits officially. Denmon has already been to Missouri, Kansas State, Kansas and Creighton unofficially.
"I'm trying to find a place where I can play and come in and contribute to the team early," Denmon said. "I'd like to play at the highest level I could play at and compete with other good players and good teams. I want to go where I can play, first of all. That's what I'm trying to do and where I like the coaches and the way they like to play.
"I wanted to do something before basketball season. I'm really not sure. Hopefully it will happen before the season gets started."
