Marcus Alipate Gets Recruiting Looks
Alipate said that he is hearing from a variety of schools for basketball.
"Minnesota, Wisconsin, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, Notre Dame, Iowa State, Iowa and Northern Iowa," he said.
Alipate said that he is working hard to improve himself as a player.
"I am just trying to be more of a leader on the floor and get people more shots, to score more and help people out on the floor and my defense," he said.
Alipate has grown and gotten bigger, which has helped his play.
"I think I am like 6-foot now, hopefully," he said. "I put a little weight on and it has paid off. I'm up to 165-170."
Alipate said that he is not sure of what camps he will attempt to attend this summer.
"I don't know yet. I'm just trying to get showcased."
Alipate figures to attend some of the upcoming Junior Days for football.
"I'll probably go to the Gopher one. I am hearing from some schools in football, but mostly basketball," he said.
Alipate started as point guard for the Howard Pulley 16-and-under AAU program last summer and hopes to have a strong summer playing hoops.
"I'll play for Pulley. Hopefully, the 17-and-under team," he said.
Alipate made an unofficial visit to Minnesota in October and watched the Gopher football team defeat Indiana 16-7. He received an in-school visit from Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan and Minnesota Sept. 29.
Alipate visited the Wisconsin and Northern Iowa campuses as a member of the Howard Pulley AAU program and attended every home Gophers football game with his brother.
Alipate helped lead the Jaguars to a 4-5 mark this season, losing to Eagan in the first round of the playoffs.
