Oregon Juinor Amateur Champion Joins Men's Golf

San Jose, Calif. -- Marcus Potter, an Oregon junior amateur champion signed a National Letter-of-Intent and will join the San Jose State University men's golf team beginning in the 2012-13 season. Spartans' head coach John Kennaday made the announcement.

Potter will be a 2012 graduate of Tualatin (Ore.) High School where he led his team to the Class 6A State Championship in his sophomore and junior seasons, finishing in the top-five individually in both years.

As a junior, Potter was the 2010 Pacific Conference District Tournament champion and went on to take first place at the Oregon Junior Amateur Championship that same year.

Potter has played on the Future Collegians World Tour (FCWT) where he won the 2009 FCWT Coyote Creek and 2009 FCWT Arizona Tournament. He played in three FCWT tournaments during the 2010-11 season averaging 73.00 strokes per round.

Potter was one of eight individuals representing the state of Oregon in the 43rd annual Hogan Cup which showcases top western region junior golfers in August 2011.

"We're excited to have him here," said Kennaday. "He is part of a strong recruiting class this year and I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do as a Spartan."
