Marcus primarily played defensive end during his high school career at Durham Hillside. However, because of his lack of ideal height and exceptional speed, the 6-foot-2, 225-pounder will likely play more of a linebacker position in college – or a position similar to what he's playing in the Shrine Bowl.
"Practicing, practicing it here constantly will get me more comfortable with it," Marcus said. "Once I get to college, I can't say I've never seen it. The whole experience is giving me preparation for college. Most likely, I will go to a school that plays a 3-4."
Marcus isn't certain where he will play college ball – he doesn't even have a solid list of favorite schools. He said he'll likely schedule January official visits to Auburn, East Carolina, Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio State.
"I think I have officials scheduled with ECU and Florida," Marcus said. "I think one is the 13th of January and the other is right after that."
UNC was a school that was, to say the least, a strong player for Marcus, until Butch Davis' untimely dismissal. The Tar Heels' hiring of Larry Fedora last week, though, might have lessened the blow.
"I see that [UNC] is really trying to rebuild their program," Marcus said. "I expect them to do a lot better in the future. I saw that Fedora had a great season this past year. Once I get a chance to take a visit to UNC, I look forward to talking to him and learning more about him."
After taking his official visits, Marcus said he plans to make a verbal commitment.
