Scouting Report

Marcus Capers is a dynamic wing player with freakish athletic ability who can also run the point. At 6'4' with a 7'0' wingspan Capers is able to play way above the rim, he will finish plays with emphatic dunks, rebounds extremely well on both ends of the floor and is capable of defending positions 1-3 and some 4's. He started every game his junior and senior years at the 3-2 and also played back up PG. Very good passer and ball handler who doesn't turn it over much. High energy, high motor type of player who is developing into a consistent scorer.
