In 2009, he led the Dolphins to the Illinois 4A championship. Against Waukegan, he scored 19 points, which was the most in the game, and was named MVP of the tournament. ESPNU said that Marcus was the 60th best shooting guard in the country for high school seniors.

Marcus Jordan Business Career
Marcus always wanted to own a business, so when he quit basketball in 2016, he opened Trophy Room, a Jordan-inspired sneakers store modeled after Michael Jordan’s Trophy Room in the Jordan family home, which has a collection of the rarest and most special Air Jordans. Marcus also works with well-known companies like Nike and the Upper Deck Card Company, and he sells a huge selection of Jordan and Nike products.
During his first game with The Knights, Marcus made the biggest news about his time with UCF. During his first year at UCF, he wore Air Jordans to a preseason game for a team sponsored by Adidas. Because of Marcus’ actions, Adidas ended the contract, which cost the university about $3 million in sponsorship money.
In an interview with Complex years later, the former student-athlete said, “One of the things they told me on my visit was that I would be able to wear Jordans without any problems.”
