"Right now, it's very solid," said Marcus when asked how strong his commitment to Mississippi State is.
But he's such a great athlete who can play a variety of positions on the next level, that several schools have remained in the hunt for his signature.
"Alabama, Southern Miss and Ole Miss all call me weekly," said Marcus, who has played on a high ankle sprain all the season. "Alabama dropped by here last Friday before the game. I talk to Mississippi State about once a week. If they don't get in touch with me, then they will call again. But once they get in touch with me, I talk to them again the next week."
As for official visits, none have been set as of now.
"I haven't set up any official visits, but all four want me to (officially) visit," noted Marcus.
Does he plan on taking any other visits other than to Mississippi State?
"There's probably just one other one that I'm going to visit, Alabama," said Marcus.
Marcus leads his team into battle against Lumberton High School tonight in the first round of the playoffs.
