"Marckus is tough as nails," Boswell's high school coach, Jim Sosebee said. "He has great hands, makes tough catches, and is great with the ball after the catch. He's a competitor who wants the ball in the tough time of the game."
Boswell chose the Wildcats over a a scholarship from Steve Spurrier and the Gamecocks, who offered on Signing Day. Florida State and Miami also heavily recruited Boswell after committing to Kentucky.
