DB Kadetrix Marcus (6-1 190) of Stone Mountain, GA says the nine schools he's looking at the strongest right now are Clemson, USC, Auburn, West Virginia, Miami, Minnesota, Michigan State, South Florida and Tennessee with no favorite.
He recently visited Clemson, Tennessee and South Florida. "Clemson was pretty cool," Marcus said. "I toured Vickery Hall and the practice facilities. And I had a chance to talk with Tajh Boyd, coach Swinney, coach Rumph and coach Harbison. It's a pretty good school, laid back, and I like their scheme and their academics." Clemson is recruiting Marcus as a free safety.
Marcus said he talked Tuesday with USC recruiter Lorenzo Ward. "We were just talking and catching up," he said.
Marcus said he wants to visit each of the nine schools before deciding on favorites and he wants to visit Miami and West Virginia this summer.
