First Impressions Can Create Unrealistic Expectations for Recruits
Wednesday, March 11, 2009
The expectations surrounding Kendall Marshall grew more quickly than his legs. Six years ago, when he was 5 feet 2 inches and 90 pounds, he was rated the No. 1 sixth-grade basketball prospect in the country. Marshall said jealousy over that ranking ended friendships and started unusual rivalries.
“Some people despised me because of it,” Marshall said. “And there were people who thought I should dominate every game.”
Marshall is now a 6-3, 175-pound junior guard at Bishop O’Connell High School, and he dominates often. He is no longer the top-ranked player in the class of 2010, but he is among the top 30 and has committed to play for North Carolina. (New York Times)
