I am aged too. Marcus was pretty much the consensus #1 for 1986/87. Others in the running were Dennis Scott, Labradford Smith, Eric Manuel, and Larry Johnson.Ageed. I remember Marcus being rated as the #1 recruit in the country.
In 1984/85, of the two preseason glossies, one had Lowell Hamilton and the other had the late Ben Wilson #1. Danny Ferry probably edged out Pervis Ellison and Sean Elliott for consensus #1. Lowell was probably consensus top 5.
