ESPN No. 96 ranked high school junior Marcus Zegarowski has committed to Creighton.
The 6-1 point guard out of Tilton School (NH) led his Nike EYBL Expressions Elite team in scoring and assists this summer, averaging 14.8 points, 3.6 assists and 1.1 steals.
“I’m heading to Creighton because they were honest [with] me from the jump and [head] coach Mac [Greg McDermott] and coach [Preston] Murphy recruited me hard,” Zegarowski told Scout. “I loved the visit and I see myself fitting into their play style from the jump.”
“They play a very free, fast offense,” added Zegarowski. “Everybody is unselfish and they play for each other. Coach Mac made this program into a top 25 program and it’s because his principals on offense and defense.”
Creighton is getting a gem in Zegarowski, whose older brother his former Syracuse star and 2014 NBA Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams.
“Marcus possesses an advanced shooting stroke, is a score-first point guard, and comes from a basketball rich family,” wrote Big Eastcoast Bias’ Alex Sindelar. “If he’s able to condition well and learn McDermott’s system he could be a potent offensive choice off the bench his freshman year.”
The Blue Jays beat out the likes of Ohio State, Washington, and Minnesota to land Zegarowski.
At Creighton, Zegarowski will join fellow 2018 recruits No. 16 C Ian Steere and small forward Christian Bishop.
