Duke Offers Florida Athlete

Laurence Marius has his first official scholarship offer on the table...from Duke.

Laurence Marius is a good looking CB prospect out of Key West High School in the state of Florida. He's already picked up his first offer and he's looking for more. Who has made his early top 5?

"I'm looking at Florida State, Florida, Duke, Virginia Tech and Miami. I really don't have a leader yet," Laurence Marius said.

What stands out about those schools?

Florida State: "It's close to home and my mom wants me to stay close to home."

Florida: "I grew up a Florida Gator fan."

Duke: "They offered me a scholarship."

Virginia Tech: "I just like them as a school."

Miami: "I went to a few of their games and it's a really nice campus and all."

What's he looking for in a school?

"I really don't know what I'm looking for yet. I want to play early, but I know you have to learn the system."

How would he describe his game?

"I have good leadership ability and I communicate well. I remember the plays very well. I need to improve my technique a little bit. I get a little lazy on my backpedal coming over from running back sometimes."

"Were going to the FIU passing camp and a skills camp in Tampa."

Marius excels on the track as well as the football field.

"I have the school record for the long jump and I ran an 11.21 in the 100m at a meet on Saturday."

What kind of numbers did he put last season?

"We missed a bunch of games due to the Hurricanes, but I had 940yds rushing, 27 tackles and 3 interceptions in just 7 games."
