Doesn't mean much, but I like the sound of this kid. He seems serious about winning and doing whatever it takes to make guys around him better. He's been looking for a winning program and seems to realize what Gonzaga has is no fluke.


Slipper Still Fits: What position are you most comfortable playing in the back court? Would you categorize yourself as a scoring PG or as more of a combo guard?

Marquise Carter: Coming up in high school, I really played both positions and was sort of a combo guard. My senior year, I kinda got moved to the PG, and became really comfortable at that position throughout senior year and my Juco years. I would categorize myself as a point guard and that's it. I feel I can score when I need to, but I love to get my teammates buckets, and I love to have guys around me who can really finish and make plays. I'm not really use to having that, but when I was on my visit I noticed that these guys were really good at that and I loved it.

Love the focus on making others around him better and wanting to distribute the ball first and score 2nd. Can't wait to see him play!

This kid is ALWAYS in the gym working on something. I love it.

I can't wait to see Marquise Carter START and infuse fresh energy into an offense that seemed rudderless as the season wore on.

I see Carter and Meech being ideal bridges to Bell and Dranginis, with Pangos probably redshirting if he chooses GU.

Man I hope this guy can come in and give us some stability at the PG position. If he is decent, he will starting by the start of conference.
