California DB Prospect Impresses at Cal Camp

When you have a chance to attend the myriad camps and combines around the country throughout this so-called "off-season", it's an opportunity to raise your stock or risking dropping it off the map. One player that certainly did the former was DB, Marcus Ezeff. Now, for him, it's hopefully just a matter of time.

Santa Rosa Montgomery High defensive back Marcus Ezeff lets his play do his talking for him. However, with coaches from schools from throughout the Pac-10, Big 12, Big 10, along with several independents watching closely, Ezeff plans to have a big senior campaign - - stating that his ultimate goal for the 2004 season is to win the North Coast Section Championship.

To prepare for the upcoming season, and the recruiting attention that will come with it, Marcus attended both the Nike Camp at Stanford, and the MSL Camp at Cal-Berkley. Marcus stated that he did particularly well at the Berkley camp, where he posted a 4.5 time in the 40, and did 14 reps at 185 pounds on the bench. Cal coaches seemed impressed with his work ethic, telling Marcus that he was one of the standouts of the camp, and stating that they liked his hard-working approach. In July, Marcus plans on attending the B2G Camp in Stockton.

During the 2003 season, Marcus had four interceptions for the Vikings to go along with 54 tackles on the defensive side of the ball. On offense, Marcus was busy catching 37 passes totaling 687 yards, and was a special teams standout - - returning 2 punt returns for touchdowns, including one for 75 yards. He has a max on the bench press of 255 lbs.

At this point, Marcus' mind is wide open as to a college choice. When asked, he stated that he didn't have a "dream school," and that he would likely go where he felt most comfortable. Planning to take the SAT in October, Marcus currently sports a 3.16 GPA.
