Marcus Carr is an athletic, skilled playmaker that can score the basketball. He had a very strong start to his junior season, but his shooting percentages tapered off as his team started dropping games in Big Ten Conference play. He is a scoring point guard that has the ability to take over games, and he can be too inconsistent at times, especially with his jump shot.
He transferred from Minnesota to Texas, but turned in a disappointing season this past year. Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2023 draft.
