Marqus Blakeley, Metuchen native, University of Vermont superstar, has found his way to the NBA, signing with the Clippers for two years. As an undrafted rookie, he has an uphill climb ahead of him but he's ready for it. Here's a recent interview with the up-and-coming star.

Blakeley is the rare player drafted into the NBA who is a four-year collegiate starter. As the best player for the last three seasons in the America East Conference, Blakely was the NCAA Slam Dunk Champion and his exceptional "work ethic and self-awareness" make him a much-vaulted proposition for big league success.

Go, Marqus! Enjoy the big leagues!
