Since then, several other schools have jumped in including Auburn, Middle Tennessee, Connecticut, Stanford, Purdue, Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky, Ole Miss, South Florida, NC State, Maryland, Buffalo and Memphis.
Marcus went to USC's junior day and spring game. He's also visited Auburn, Middle Tennessee and Vanderbilt. No other visits are planned right now.
Clemson also is interested and Tiger recruiter watched Marcus practice Tuesday. Marcus said Rumph indicated to him he might offer at some point.
USC recruiter Lorenzo Ward also has been to the school this week. Marcus talked to Ward earlier in the week. "He wants me to come to South Carolina and he wants to coach me," Marcus said. Coaches from Auburn, Middle Tennessee, Tennessee, NC State, Southern Miss and South Florida also have been to the school.
Marcus said he doesn't have a favorite and will have a decision around the start of the season.
