DE Jamal Marcus Profile
Jamal Marcus, the No. 53 defensive end in the class of 2012, spent most of last week at The Opening in Beaverton, Ore.
"It went real good. I got to compete against some of the top linemen in the country, so it was real good," he recently told CUTigers.com.
So far this summer, the 6-foot-3, 245-pound has visited North Carolina. He has a few other destinations in mind.
"I would like to visit Georgia Tech, Clemson, North Carolina and Auburn," Marcus said.
He spoke with Caldwell shortly before leaving for The Opening.
"He was just talking about getting me to Clemson and how practice was going and everything," Marcus said. "He talked about me possibly going on an official down there."
What stands out about the Tigers?
"The school, the team, the players, the coaches, the academics--everything," he said.
Marcus currently claims no leader but he does have a few things in mind when it comes to finding the right fit.
"Coaching, the team. Does the team stick together? Is there a good work ethic? I want a place where I would feel at home. A place with good academics, a good graduation rate," he said.
Marcus holds several offers, including Clemson, Auburn, North Carolina, Georgia Tech, N.C. State and Duke.
As a junior at Hillside High School [Durham, N.C.], he recorded 45 tackles and 14 sacks.
