Binney Going Prep
Published by CROWN staff on July 28, 2009
With the upcoming basketball season drawing closer, recruiting sagas become even more intriguing as teams look to sign talented players who are still weighing their options. One such situation involves Toronto’s own, Marvin Binney from Eastern Commerce. A recent graduate, Binney is considered one of Canada’s premier talents coming out of high school. The 6’1 speedster who averaged 14 points, 6 assists and 4 steals per game last year has kept the basketball community guessing as to which school he’ll choose to play for in the fall…until now.
Crown Magazine has learned that Marvin has decided for the time being to play prep ball in Maryland at Progressive Christian Academy. Despite the fact that numerous Division 1 schools have extended offers to the young point guard, this decision will allow Marvin to continue growing as a player while staying squarely on the radar for Division 1 programs. At the same time, Marvin is leaving his options open in case he gets an offer he can’t refuse from a particular college. In other words, his decision at this point is not set in stone, and can be subject to change. However, it does appear likely that he will spend the year playing prep, and then move up to Division 1 ball in the 2010-2011 season.
Whether he sticks with PCA in Maryland or ends up in college this upcoming school year, one thing is for sure: Marvin Binney has arrived on the American scene and is there to stay. Marvin is one of numerous Eastern Commerce products to take his game to the United States, along with Junior Cadougan and Alwayne Bigby, just to name a couple.
