"When they came to school today they layed it on the line, they told me about Kelvin Grant how he de-commited, and I told them that I'm not the type to really do that," said Howard in an interview with CUTigers.com at 8:40 PM.
"They are really trying to make me think about my commitment to Georgia, which I've been doing since Sunday," added Howard.
"Coach Johnson is coming to visit me from Georgia later this week, but I'm firm with my commitment right now to Georgia. You can announce that and I told Clemson that right now I'm 100% sure."
"The only way I would de-commit is if Georgia offered another outside linebacker. They said that the other OLB would commit after I did and that they wouldn't offer any more after that. That would be the only way I would de-commit if they did that," added the all-star linebacker.
Right now, Marcus is firm with Georgia, but he is still giving the Tigers some consideration. Coach Burns will visit again next week, but things certainly look good for Mark Richt and the Georgia Bulldogs right now.
Howard met with Coach Burns and with Coach Bowden for almost 2 hours. We will continue to keep you updated on this developing situation, right up through signing day.
