When Inside theVille last spoke with WR/CB Marcus Folmar of W.S. Neal High School in East Brewton, Alabama, he had just returned from an official visit to Southern Miss, as well as attending the Cardinals practice for the GMAC Bowl.

On Friday evening the 6'0, 175-pound athlete informed ITV that he decided to end the speculation.

"It looks like I'll be going to Louisville," stated Folmar.

A standout athlete on both sides of the ball, Folmar has proven that he can excel at either receiver or defensive back. However, he does a preference.

"I like receiver a little more," explained Folmar. "I like to catch balls and produce points."

Marcus also explained that he likes the Bobby Petrino offense.

"They throw the ball a lot there," continued Folmar. "They look real good at quarterback for quite awhile, which would really help me even more."

He is currently scheduled to make his official visit on January 16th, but may move it up a week or two. While it'll be his first visit to Louisville, it won't be the first time that looked into what the university and city have to offer.

"I've looked it all up," Folmar explained about researching Louisville on the internet. "I have looked up the city's population, the school's academic programs, the facilities, the dorms and a bunch of other stuff. I'll love it if the facilities look anything like they do in the media guide."

While early playing may be a possibility, Folmar hasn't ruled out redshirting for his freshman season.

"I'd like to come in and play right away, but my parents want me to redshirt," continued Folmar. "It doesn't really matter. I can see the positives of doing both."

Folmar entertained scholarship offers from Clemson, Southern Miss, Marshall and UAB before commiting to Louisville.

Folmar, who is an excellent student, is fully qualified.
