Illinois has offered a scholarship to Morgan Park point guard Marcus LoVett, one of the top-rated players in the national class of 2015.
“They’ve been into some open gyms, (Illinois coach John) Groce came out to see him,” said Mac Irvin Fire coach Mike Irvin. “They say he definitely could be the best point guard in the country. Groce said he’s better than anyone they had been recruiting.”
Lovett hasn’t scheduled any official visits yet.
“He’s still taking everything in,” said Irvin. “He’s a normal kid, he’s just enjoying his time in Chicago. He’s glad he’s getting a lot of love here.Now that all these offers are coming in he will probably sit down and start thinking about visits.”
Lovett now has offers from Illinois, Kansas, DePaul and Tennessee.
