Hoosier Buck (Jun 20, 2002 8:35:57 PM)

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 8:41:21 PM)

Kirk L. (Jun 20, 2002 8:36:09 PM)
Marcel who are some of your offers and do you have a top five and a leader right now?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 8:37:59 PM)

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 8:39:08 PM)
my top five Maryaland, Michigan State, BC, Ohio State

nbuck (Jun 20, 2002 8:38:50 PM)
would osu getting another te in this class affect your descion about what postion you would like to play?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 8:44:08 PM)
I would have to say no, the best player will play

Hoosier Buck (Jun 20, 2002 8:41:39 PM)
What is your opinion of Coach Tressel and staff?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 8:46:51 PM)
I think Coach Tressel is a great coach and a great person, the rest of the staff I really don't know that well I haven't sat down and talked to them

nbuck (Jun 20, 2002 8:41:51 PM)
what do you think about ohio state and coach tressel?

MrBucknuts (Jun 20, 2002 8:41:56 PM)
Do you talk with Roy Hall about recruiting and OSU?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 8:49:06 PM)
Yeah sometime he really helps by telling me how he broke down the schools

nbuck (Jun 20, 2002 8:46:11 PM)
sounds to me you would like to tackle a qb rather than catch a pass from him do you have a defensemans mentality when you play?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 8:51:39 PM)
I love to hit and catch they go hand and hand, but on the field I never run away from contact

Kirk L. (Jun 20, 2002 8:52:28 PM)
Marcel what were some of your stats last year on both sides of the ball?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 8:54:34 PM)
I really didn't keep up on the catches and tackles I just wanted to win, but I do know I lead the team in tackles and I was second on the team in catches to Roy I think he got like 7 or 8 more catches

nbuck (Jun 20, 2002 8:53:43 PM)
marcel would you like to remain close to home with your colllege choice[ midwest ]

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 8:56:58 PM)
I really don't mind leaving but it's always nice to stay close

nbuck (Jun 20, 2002 8:56:19 PM)
does having a justin zwick and posibly a todd boeckman or brady quinn appeal to you as a te?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 8:58:27 PM)
of course, I mean they are all very good QB's I wouldn't mind catching a few passes from them

Kirk L. (Jun 20, 2002 8:59:19 PM)
What are some of the things you want to work on this year in preparation for the next level?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 9:02:06 PM)
well of course you have to get bigger stronger and faster, but I think I am going to try to get some more techniques on both sides of the ball

nbuck (Jun 20, 2002 9:00:00 PM)
how large will you grow any indication?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 9:03:52 PM)
my doctor said that I would grow to about 6'7, 6'8 and a coach told me I'll be about 260-280 by the time it's all over

Kirk L.  (Jun 20, 2002 9:04:07 PM)

Kirk L. (Jun 20, 2002 9:04:36 PM)
Marcel, what other sports do you play and what are things you like to do in your spare time?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 9:06:02 PM)
well I also play basketball and run track (i didn't run track this year) in my spare time I lift and play basketball

Kirk L. (Jun 20, 2002 9:06:27 PM)
Marcel do you have a pro player you look up to or compare yourself to?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 9:08:42 PM)
well I really like Shannon Sharpe because was one of the best TE's in the NFL and Ray Lewis he is unstoppable

HangOnSloopy (Jun 20, 2002 9:08:01 PM)
How does your team stack up this fall Marcel?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 9:11:36 PM)
well we lost alot, but we are bringing back alot, I think are D- line and O-line are going to be good, we have all of the WR, RB, but we are really going to need are QB to step up

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 9:11:56 PM)
we should be a pretty good team

nbuck (Jun 20, 2002 9:14:26 PM)
when would you like to make a decision?

M.Frost #82 (Jun 20, 2002 9:15:34 PM)
