5-Star DT Makes Commitment

Marcus Forston is a five-star defensive tackle prospect from Miami Northwestern and he decided to end the recruiting process on Thursday afternoon. Read on for more...

Marcus Forston had an opportunity to go anywhere in America. Every major program in college football wanted him. At 6-foot-2 and 300 pounds, Forston is clearly the No. 1 defensive line prospect in the state of Florida and he's considered by some to be the nation's premier prospects at his position.

"I'm a Cane," Forston said moments ago, as he committed to the Hurricanes on Thursday in front of head coach Randy Shannon.

"Man, I'm excited. I really like what Coach Shannon is doing there," he said. "They're putting together a real good recruiting class."

Forston had narrowed it down to Florida State and Miami before picking the Hurricanes. He's hoping to earn immediate playing time.

"I wanna play as a freshman," he said. "That's everyone's goal. I am a hard worker and will do whatever it takes. My biggest goal is to one day play in the NFL."

Forston becomes the fourth player from Miami Northwestern High to pick the Hurricanes, joining quarterback Jacory Harris, offensive lineman Brandon Washington, and wide receiver Aldarius Johnson.
