The Greenies of Christ School are coming off a tremendous season, going 24-9 last year overall. And they certainly will be in the mix next season with a talent roster returning.

However, this week, several learned that Hampton High School’s sharp shooting wing, Marquis Godwin, will be transferring to Christ School this coming year, giving them another dynamic play maker.

Godwin, part of the 2017 class, averaged 14.5 points and seven rebounds per game last season for the Crabbers, helping Hampton advance to the 5A South Semifinals. He is a 6’5 wing that certainly will add size for the Greenies in the coming years.

Phenom Hoops caught up with Marquis about his decision and see why Christ School was the best fit for him.

“I am very excited to be a part of the Christ School family,” Godwin said. “It was a great opportunity I took. Better academics, a place where I can focus and get college ready, and also the great facilities. I’m looking to play great competition, get better, and put my name out there in the nation.”

It seems that new Coach Scott Willard could be looking to play Godwin at the two or three position and become a do-it-all kind of player this coming season.

“I will come in as the two guard,” he replied. “Be an all-around player and not just use my jump shot. I will lift and do speed training to prepare for the season.”

Godwin has really been working hard this offseason, concentrating on trying to perfect his game in several areas. Ball handling has been one main focus this summer, while getting his bounce up.

For his recruitment, Godwin holds offers from Old Dominion, Hampton, Howard, Maryland-Eastern Shore, Norfolk State, and Richmond. But he hopes that his move will certainly open more eyes on what he can do on the court.

He mentioned last month that Old Dominion is his leader for now, but he did take a visit to Richmond this summer. Other than that though, he has mostly been working out.

Godwin is ranked No. 16 in the Virginia Rankings for 2017 by Phenom Hoops
