Top PA Jr. OL Josh Marks likes the Wolverines

As the Wolverine coaches do their in-home and in-school recruiting visits in Dec. and Jan., they also get to check on some top juniors at their schools. Big junior Pennsylvanian offensive lineman Josh Marks already has scholarship offers, but there is one certain school he grew up rooting for, and at which he camped in 2005.

Junior offensive lineman Josh Marks plays for Southern Columbia, Pennsylvania, which beat Steel High 41-7 in todays Single A Semi-Final at Hershey Stadium.  Marks is 6-foot-5, 300 pounds.  He is the man responsible for most of FB Henry Hynowski's 1,800 yards and 30 TD's this season.  Hynowksi is also a Top PA Junior, he and Marks are very good friends. GoBlueWolverine recently had a chat with Marks.
