Offseason evaluation: Can Marcus Bingham put on weight and turn the corner? https://www.spartansportspage.com/2019/06/13/offseason-evaluation-can-marcus-bingham-put-on-weight-and-turn-the-corner/ Thu, 13 Jun 2019 12:07:04 +0000 https://www.spartansportspage.com/?p=21572 Marcus Bingham came to Michigan State last summer as its highest-rated recruit and with an intriguing size and skill set. He stood 6-foot-11 had longer arms than Jaren Jackson Jr. He also had legitimate shooting ability, dating back to his days as a guard before a high school growth spurt. But thoughts of him breaking into the playing rotation and contributing as a freshman in 2018-19were quickly squashed.
