Earlier this week, Marcus was penciled in as an official visitor to the Tennessee Volunteers this weekend. That visit was later canceled leaving Marcus with no doubt that he was ready to become a Hawkeye.
"Marcus came into my class and told me he was ready to commit to Iowa," Godby Head Coach Shelton Crews stated. "We made a call to Coach (Darrell) Wilson, and found out that Iowa had landed their cornerback prospect. Coach (Phil) Parker had worked Marcus very hard last week and warned him scholarships were running out. However, Coach Wilson is coming by the school tomorrow and will be talking to us about the situation. I believe Iowa has done some re-thinking."
According to Coach Crews, they were informed last week Iowa was awaiting word from two cornerbacks, including Marcus, and one offensive lineman for their remaining scholarships.
"They changed their plans this week, and after receiving a cornerback commitment, are now awaiting the answer from two lineman prospects. I thought I had a pretty good relationship with the Iowa coaches so I expect I will learn more about it tomorrow when talking with Coach Wilson."
Besides a meeting with Iowa tomorrow, now what lies ahead for the Tallahassee burner?
I will be speaking with Coach Crews tomorrow to immediately gain an update with any developments occurring with Iowa.
One positive note shared with Coach Crews was the spreading of word on one spectular prospect the Hawkeyes have landed.
"I have a coaching friend in Texas, who spoke very highly about Drew Tate, the Iowa quarterback commitment. He said he is just amazing with his ability to put the ball all over the field."
