Recruiting Update: Marcus Tsohonis (2019 Jefferson HS/Seattle Rotary)

Thanks to the ankle injury he suffered at the end of the summer, Marcus Tsohonis will be on the shelf for fall league. But that’s OK with the versatile 6-foot-5, 175-pound guard from Jefferson High School. The time away gives him some time to focus in on his recruitment and he just returned from his first official visit of the fall.

This past weekend, Tsohonis got a chance to take a trip to Washington. “It was pretty good,” Tsohonis said. “The campus is really nice, really small and close together and a lot of the degree majors that I like were close to each other. The facilities were good – I like the court and the weight room that they’re upgrading, it’s really high tech.”

Current freshman Elijah Hardy was Tsohonis’s main player host during his time on campus and he felt they got along well. He had some good conversations with the coaches too. “They said they would love to have me,” Tsohonis said. “But other than that, they just showed me around.”

But as much as Tsohonis enjoyed his time on campus, he did not commit. He’s focused on taking some more campus visits – the next one scheduled according to Jefferson head coach Pat Strickland will be to Fresno State at the end of the month. Arizona State, Pacific, Portland, and Washington State are the other possible trips.

“Right now I’m looking into my other offers and seeing if I’m going to take officials there,” Tsohonis said. “I’m just looking more into that right now.”

As he looks forward to those trips, Tsohonis can look back at the standard set by Washington. While he hesitated going as far as naming the Huskies his leader, he did have this to offer. “I love them – it’s the Pacific Northwest so it’s really nice,” Tsohonis continued. “Especially since I’ve been going down to Seattle for Rotary so it’s felt like home.”

Tsohonis ranks as the #1 ranked player in the PrepHoops Oregon Class of 2019 rankings.
