Marlon Linton Jr., a very smooth lefty with an all-around skill set and a tremendous feel for the game. He's a crafty, instinctual playmaker who makes everyone around him better, he's comfortable creating for himself and distributing the ball to his teammates.
An extremely selfless player that loves to keep his guys involved, he's always willing to make the extra pass around the perimeter, and even in transition, he threw some nice alley-oops, if you run the court with Marlon he will feed you. Good point guard abilities, high basketball IQ, quality court vision, capable of making any pass on the floor accurately, low turnover rate, can control the tempo, and has reliable open court speed.
Without the ball, Linton continues to find ways to be effective, he's an excellent rebounder for a guard, he moves well around the perimeter looking for openings, and makes timely cuts.
Marlon has an unbelievable amount of potential due to his size, skills, IQ, and team-first mentality. Also a perfect complementary player alongside his teammate Landon Brown who's a great scorer while Marlon is more of the facilitator, there's no doubt in my mind that those two will become the best backcourt in Texas by 2024. But most of all, I believe Marlon Linton Jr. will become one of the best and highest-ranked players of his class, mark my words.
