Marcus Shaver Jr. has committed to Portland, per his Twitter page.

Shaver, a 6-1 point guard by the way of Phoenix, is a three-star recruit from the class of 2017. He also received offers from New Mexico State, New Mexico, Santa Clara, Hawaii and others.

The 5th-ranked player from Arizona for 2017, ESPN highlights Shaver’s versatility, slashing and jump-shooting in his official scouting report. This past season at Shadow Mountain High School, Shaver led his team to a 27-0 record and an Arizona state championship - his third in four years.

Shaver was a stat sheet stuffer in high school. He averaged 22.4 points, 2.5 assists and 2.7 steals his senior season.

With the loss of Paris Austin, who received his release and committed to California on May 16, Shaver figured to contend and possibly start at point guard for the Broncos this upcoming season

Marcus Dickinson, a freshman last season, is the only other true point guard on the Boise State roster. Cameron Christon, a 2-star wing, is the only BSU commit from the class of 2017.
