AAU basketball is not devoid of flaws, but for more rural-based players there is simply no better opportunity for exposure. The April-May introduced Dalton Marsh of Red Boiling Springs School to PrepHoopsTN, but more importantly college recruiters.
Playing with EAB 16u, Marsh learned to play faster basketball. He learned to move his feet on defense better. Marsh is a pick-and-pop guy with remarkable mid-range shooting touch.
Most of April both EAB 16u and Dalton Marsh competed with Hoopseen events. The 16u team won two major events and finished second place in another. Their depth is special.
Did Dalton Marsh specifically attract any college coaches?
“Yes sir,” shared Dalton Marsh early June. “I got an invite to Murray State’s Elite camp, which I’m attending later this month, an invite to Western Kentucky’s camp and an invite to Central Michigan University Exposure camp.”
Marsh will attend Murray State. Central Michigan is an option, but requires a little more planning due to distance. If time permits Marsh would like to camp with Central Michigan University.
“Won’t be able to make it to WKU’s because of vacation,” said Marsh.
Dalton Marsh is a frtoncrout player all day. He doesn’t have the footspeed to morph into a college wing. He will always be a forward and that is ok. His shooting touch makes him one of those dangerous face-up fours. The height becomes problematic if he stays under 6-foot-7. There are colleges that enjoy a versatile scorer like Marsh, but frontcourt positions demand a modicum of height and Dalton currently resides on the cusp of too short.
Keep an eye on his physical development in the coming year. The college camps are a wonderful place to establish first impressions.
“And also I’ve received elite camp invites from Catawba College, Belmont Abbey , Queens University of Charlotte, Greeneville University, Montclair St., Arkansas Tech, Marietta College, and Newberry College.”
Entering his junior season Dalton Marsh will develop a good understanding of what level of college coaches admire his skills and size. The options are never fixed. In fact, some seniors drop in value and many increase. Regardless, the junior year provides the best, most revealing glimpse in to a player’s recruiting value.
Dalton Marsh took the first step in April and looks poised to continue building that recruiting reputation this summer.
