2013 Intro: Marcus Newby

2013 OLB Marcus Newby from Quince Orchard HS has Terps high on his list.

How has your off-season been going?

It's been going good; I've just been working out and doing a lot of conditioning and lifting.

Have you gone to any schools to take unofficial visits? How were they?

I've been to Rutgers, that's about it. I'm looking forward to going to Nebraska in June. The Rutgers visit went good; it was better than I thought it would be. Their new uniforms are pretty nice, they're the same colors as my school colors so they're pretty neat.

Have you visited Maryland before?

No, not yet.

What schools are you hearing from the most?

I'd have to say Rutgers, Nebraska, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia Tech. That's probably the most that I'm hearing from right now.

Which schools have offered you?

All the schools I mentioned before have offered me. (Rutgers, Nebraska, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia Tech)

Do you have a Top 5? Can you say a little about each of those schools and why you like them?

I don't have a Top 5 yet.

Any time frame on making a decision?

Before my senior year most likely.

What does your summer schedule look like in terms of camps, showcases and college visits?

Showcases and camps I'm probably barely going to do, but I'm going out for a lot of visits so that way I can probably make my decision before my season.

What are you looking for in a school?

I'm looking for a great academic school with strong support.

Is distance a factor when choosing your school?

Yeah, I don't want to go too far. I want my family to come see me play.

What style of defense do you guys play? Does it match Maryland's style? (ie- 4-3 or 3-4)

Yeah, we run a 4-3 and basically Maryland runs the same thing as we do.

What were your stats this past season?

103 tackles, 18 tackles for losses, and three sacks.

What are your strengths? Weaknesses?

My strengths are being able to move sideline-to-sideline; also I'm a great open field tackler. Those are my biggest strengths I would say. Something I probably need to improve on is working at the formation.

What is your overall interest in Maryland?

I'm interested; I have a good connection with the coaching staff like Coach Edsall and Coach Locksley, so I'm highly interested in them.
