Out of Nowhere, MarShon Brooks Comes With Lots of Potential

MarShon Brooks was the second leading scorer in the nation and had played four years in the Big East. But he was still a relative unknown entering the draft, with both a high ceiling and a low floor. Part of the reason is that Brooks wasn't exactly high on the NBA radar before his senior season at Providence, when he took advantage of the departures of a few teammates and became a much more dynamic player.

Those who watched Brooks closely at Providence don't offer much criticism.

"Not only was he a good player, but he’s also a charismatic, likable guy," says John Butler, sports editor for the PC student newspaper. "Students rallied around him; he was, across the board, liked by everybody. He had a little bit of a chip on his shoulder, was a little bit cocky, but people like that."
