Profle 2003 - Marcus Cohen (OL)
One of the top offensive line prospects in Mississippi is Marcus Cohen.  Cohen, from Clarkdale High School, already has a college favorite. 

"I like Ole Miss," said Cohen.  "I like how they develop their offensive linemen and I like their coaches and what they do with them.  I have just liked Ole Miss for a while.  I also like Mississippi State, LSU, Auburn, Florida and Southern Miss. 

"I really want to play somewhere close to home.  The coaching staff will also be a factor.  I will talk with them all about everything.  Facilities will be important as well." 

Cohen is huge (almost 6-6 and 290) and will only get bigger and stronger in the very near future.  Last season as a junior, he was slowed down by ankle and shoulder injuries.  "Those injuries took their toll on me and I feel better now.  I am work hard in the weight room.  I think I am a pretty solid OL with a big frame and long arms." 

According to Cohen, he has scholarship offers from Southern Miss, Arkansas State, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.  He says he will camp this summer at Ole Miss.
