Pros:

Solid scorer off the dribble

Decent defender
Solid athlete

Streaky shooter

A bit undersized for his position

Summary:

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 recently transferred to Texas, and that looks to be a good get for the Longhorns. Right now, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
