Demarcus Croaker loves to compete

Posted on: February 28th, 2012, by Jordan Fair

Arguably the most athletic player inside of the 2013 class goes by the name Demarcus Croaker. ‎Croaker is an electrifying athlete that, with a single play, can ignite the crowd. We got a chance to ‎see him earlier in the season at Nike’s “The Workout”, and he did not disappoint this high school ‎season.‎

‎Demarcus averaged 21 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists for Jones High School. Jones finished with ‎a record of 19-9 and lost in the Regional Semi-finals to Lake Highland Prep who is currently in the ‎State Final Four.‎

With plans to play for the Florida Rams this summer, Croaker is extremely excited to compete and ‎win a bunch of games. “This is my last summer and I want to finish it out strong. I want to play my ‎best and earn some more scholarships,” added Croaker.  Already having a heated head to head matchup with Rashawn Powell during the regular season ‎Croaker says, “As a basketball player I love to compete, I want to play against guys who are ‎supposedly better than me so I can prove people wrong.” The team that Demarcus would most like to ‎matchup with this summer comes as no surprise, is the team that Rashawn plays for, Florida ‎Assault.‎

When asked about what he needs to improve the most to take the next step in his development ‎Demarcus Croaker had this to say, “I need to improve my ball handling so that I can slide over and ‎play the point guard position more efficiently.”‎

Croaker’s recruitment is all over the board holding offers from Florida State, Murray State, UCF, ‎Miami (FL), Michigan, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Also involved in his recruitment is Virginia ‎Tech, Georgia, Tennessee, Clemson, North Carolina, Florida, Middle Tennessee, and Memphis.‎
