Pack Impresses Udell

Tallahassee (FL) Godby cornerback Marcus Udell visited NC State this past weekend, and he was impressed with what he saw in Raleigh.

"It was real nice," Marcus Udell told Pack Pride. "I sat down with the defensive coaches and looked over the depth charts. We also talked about the defensive schemes, and how I could fit in to their coverages.

"The players make you feel at home at NC State. I already knew one player, their running back Reggie Davis played at my high school, and he was my host. It was cool hanging with him and the players. We talked about the school and watched the games.

"I also talked with coach Amato. He's a real good guy and straightforward. I think he's a good coach."

A three-star prospect, Udell tallied 50 tackles, forced three fumbles, intercepted eight passes and broke up 18 passes for Godby. He feels that he is a lockdown corner and is looking for the defensive scheme that fits him the best on the next level.

"My strengths as a defensive back are definitely my speed and instincts," he said. "I like contact out there. I'm looking mostly at schools that let their corners play in press coverage. I like the challenge of going out there one-on-one against the receiver."

Udell recently picked up another scholarship offer and plans on taking his remaining visits before reaching a decision.

"I just picked up an offer from Ohio State," he said. "I set a visit with them for January 6th. I also have Clemson, Maryland, and Florida. I'm going to visit those three schools too."

Does Udell have a leader?

"I don't really have a top five or a leader," he said. "All of it can change so quick. I'm just looking for the best scheme I can fit in and where I feel the most comfortable."
