Marcus Gillespie, junior combo guard at Clarke Central is having himself a remarkable season thus far. He recently scored his 1,000th point and just about one week later, Gillespie had a stunning 47-point outburst. With such an athletic and finesse skillset, Gillespie dominates on the court. He has a good shooting touch from the midrange area, combined with his high IQ decision-making.

Standing at 6-foot-4 Gillespie has a nice stature. He utilizes his athleticism to its fullest potential. With his exceptional jumping ability and agility, Gillespie can effortlessly get to the basket. He currently holds an offer from Kennesaw State. Gillespie’s recruitment is sure to rise with another season of travel ball on the horizon. He’s an electrifying prospect to watch with his powerful dunks and lightning-fast crossovers. Easily one of the most intriguing guards available in Georgia’s class of 2025.
