A high IQ, intriguing combo guard in the 2019 class, Marcus Tsohonis (Portland, Ore./Jefferson) holds three offers going into his junior season, including a high major opportunity in the Pac-12. Tsohonis broke down the first three schools who have jumped on board.

Montana: “It’s my first offer. I’ve been talking to them a lot. They’ve been showing a lot of love.”

Pacific: “(Head coach) Damon Stoudamire – he’s from Portland. He knows my dad and a whole bunch of my family. It’s a good connection.”

USC: “It’s one of the biggest schools in the country. I’ve watched them play since Demar Derozan. It’s a big opportunity and California is beautiful.”

Tsohonis is picking up interest from Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, Wake Forest, Boise State, Portland, Santa Clara, Portland State, and more.  Two schools have been turning up the heat this fall.  “I can’t speak on them offering, but Boise State and Santa Clara have reached out plenty of times,” he said. “They’re talking about me coming out there to watch a football game and take an unofficial.”

Tsohonis has no visits set for the fall and currently isn’t planning on taking any. The 6-foot-5, 170-pound guard has no timetable for a decision, but is leaning towards playing out next July. 

“Just the right role for me,” he said. “I want to be on the floor. If I can’t play, my freshman year, it’s not going to be a good fit.” 

Tsohonis plays for Portland Basketball Club during the travel season.
