The original plan was to wait a bit and look over all of his options. But the more Marcus Tsohonis thought about things, he knew he had found the right college home. So there wasn’t anything for the versatile 6-foot-5, 175-pound guard from Jefferson High School to do but pick up the phone and call the coaches of his future college basketball home that he was going to commit.
On Tuesday afternoon, Tsohonis gave Washington head coach Mike Hopkins and assistant coach Cameron Dollar a call to let them know that he will be a Husky. “It just felt like home as soon as I got there,” Tsohonis said. “Playing with the players and being able to see the community – everything about it felt like home. That was the big reason I committed.”
“I talked to Coach Hopkins and Coach Dollar and they loved it,” Tsohonis continued. “They really wanted me so it was a perfect fit.”
With his commitment, Tsohonis will no longer take any more visits and he’s set for his senior season. “I’m just happy that I got this all over with,” Tsohonis said. “I’m committed and now I’ll get ready for high school basketball. That’s now the only thing on my mind.”
Tsohonis ranks as the #1 player in the PrepHoops Oregon Class of 2019 rankings. He is the second member of the Class of 2019 to make a college commitment after Jaden Nielsen-Skinner (South Salem to Portland State) and will be the first Oregon prep basketball player to play at Washington since Andrew Andrews (2011 Benson HS).
PrepHoops Oregon would like to congratulate Tsohonis and his family on his decision.
