Pottsville, PA (Future150) -- Football is king in the South. However, there's also a healthy supply of elite hoops talent in major cities such as Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Houston & Memphis. The city of Nashville isn't necessarily known for producing elite hoopers, but have had their fair share of studs over the years, most recently elite 2019 big man James Wiseman.

In the 2020 class, the city has found another national-level recruit: Marvin Hughes

The 6'1", 180-pound combo guard burst onto the scene at Future150 Elite24 Camp this year, leaving the camp with Co-MVP honors and landing in our national top 50 rankings for his class. A naturally gifted scorer with a killer instinct and tireless work ethic, the sky is the limit for his long-term potential.

In his first season at McGavock High School (TN), he's already putting up big numbers, averaging 26 points, seven rebounds and four assists per game, and attracting serious college attention along the way.

Belmont, Indiana, Rice, Vanderbilt & Villanova have all showed varying levels of interest, according to Hughes. Being a straight-A student in the classroom is only going to help his popularity among college programs going forward, as you can expect more schools to start recruiting him over the next several months.

Interestingly enough, he patterns his game after Kansas guard Malik Newman, and there are several similarities between the two. Both are microwave scorers who can play the point guard and shooting positions, and their work ethic and drive are staples of their games. And if his projection pans out, he should be an elite recruit with a plethora of high-major offers when all is said and done.

For now, he's working on improving his weaknesses on the court.

"Right now, I'm working on becoming more vocal and improving my athleticism," he told Future150.

While he's still relatively unknown outside the state of Tennessee, that should change this AAU season, as he'll be suiting for on the Under Armour circuit with Team Thad. Just remember where you heard his name first!
