SHARE Morgan Park’s Marcus LoVett Jr. signs with St. John’s

Morgan Park senior Marcus LoVett Jr. signed with St. John’s late Wednesday night. The All-Area guard announced the decision with a tweet, pretty much the same way he’s handled most of his recruitment.

LoVett took the ACT test in April but things had been very quiet around his recruitment the past few weeks. Morgan Park coach Nick Irvin thought St. John’s was the leader for LoVett back in March.

“St. John’s is up there, but Illinois is right there too,” said Irvin in March.

LoVett himself confirmed that in April, tweeting out a final list (in order) of:St. John’s, Memphis, Illinois, UIC, DePaul, Pitt, UNLV, SDSU.”

LoVett averaged 25 points, 8 assists, 7 rebounds and four steals this season and led the Mustangs to Peoria.
