Marcus Rush

SD 2011 Ranking : #34

Position: Defensive End

Experience : Redshirt Freshman

Strengths : Great physical size and ability.

Weakness : Game experience at the college level.

Overall : Not surprised to see Rush pushing early in his career to be on the field. Came from one of the top high school programs in the country and has great leverage to go with a high motor. Very smart player who is only going to get better.

Why They Made The List : Rush may be young and behind a talented player but do not be surprised when you hear his name called this season. Rush will make plays when he gets his reps and should be a starter by next season.
