Last month Marcus Bullard, one of South Carolina's top linebackers, camped at NC State and thoroughly enjoyed himself.
Bullard isn't as well known as some of the other more productive linebackers in the South largely because serious questions about his weight do exist. Bullard, who is 6-3 and just under 200 pounds, speaks about that freely and acknowledges that he needs to bulk up before some schools are willing to put offers out there.
Fortunately for the soon-to-be senior from Spring Valley High School in Columbia, SC, Wake Forest and Furman have already offered scholarships. That means unless those schools fill up before he makes his decision, Bullard knows he will have the opportunity to play Division I football.
"I've been to camps at Duke, Wake Forest right after that, and then I just got back from NC State's camp a little while back. Me and my dad flew up to Maryland and I stayed at Clemson for a three-day camp," Bullard explained. "I also went to a Furman camp and I got an offer while I was there. Wake Forest offered me last year toward the end of my season last year."
While NC State has not offered Bullard a scholarship they did appreciate the fact that he attended their camp, and it seems as though they will be keeping in contact and evaluating him well into his senior year.
"I've been to NC State for a spring practice, which was an unofficial visit, and I just got back from the camp a couple of weeks ago," he said.
"It was probably my second favorite camp I went to this year. There was some good competition there and (the coaches) knew what they were talking about. They were getting us to catch the ball and make sure our feet are good. I enjoyed it.
"My favorite was probably the Clemson (camp), just because I was there for three days and got to know everybody. We hung out in the lobby, ate pizza and watched the (NBA) Finals together."
NC State and Maryland apparently like Bullard's speed for a linebacker but want to see how much weight he is able to add in the next couple of months before they decide to offer.
