2015 Marcus Derrickson is young, talented, and developing

For a player in the Top 10 of his class, it takes some time to crack the shy outer shell of 2015 forward Marcus Derrickson of Paul VI (Va.). Though intense, aggressive, and powerful on the court, the 6-7, 230-pound rising sophomore is reserved when talking to the media, taking a few minutes of conversation before the more colorful side of his personality emerges. “I have a big motor when I play,” he said. “I can take charges, set myself up on defense, and I can score the basketball.” (NBC Sports)
