DE Jamal Marcus (6-3 225) of Durham, NC has offers from USC, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Auburn, Minnesota, East Carolina, Vanderbilt, Southern Cal, NC State, Wake Forest, Maryland, Miami and Florida among others. He has not narrowed his list but would like to do so before the season starts or shortly there after.
Marcus is looking at the Tigers and Gamecocks. "I want to evaluate both schools a little more," Marcus said. "They're both still in it with me." In fact, Marcus wants to evaluate several schools before shortening his list. "I try to call coaches from each school once a week," he added acknowledging he has maintained contact with USC and Clemson.
Marcus wants to decide on a top five and then take official visits to each of those schools. He does not have a leader.
As a junior, Marcus compiled 72 tackles and 17 sacks.
