I would certainly take out the part about being willing to associate with him in any endeavour at any time. makes it sound like you love him.

Why not say something like-

Dear Doctor Evil,

I would like to recommend Marcus for your blah blah course.
As a student I have found him to be (insert good characteristics like helpful/personable/hard-working etc) to work with, and he shows great enthusiasm, dedication and willingness to learn
He has demonstrated that he is skilled at (insert scientific nonsense eg nuclear weapons making, making bunsen burners go green, and turning lead into gold). I feel that Marcus represents a solid addition to any team, as well as a conscientious independent worker.

Please contact me if you would like to discuss his performance further.

Yours, Jonathan 'crazy love machine' Miller


Sounds a bit less sucky.
