went to MSU two weeks ago. I think I am going to USM's next home game, and I am
probably going to go up to an Ole Miss and Alabama game too."
does USM say to Marcus when they call?
"They actually stopped by the
school to see me. They said I can come down there and play RB or WR."
did Marcus say back?
"I did not take it serious at first, but they
told me before that I could play RB. So I told them I would come to a game of

said even though I am committed (to MSU), they are going to recruit me to the
fullest. They said they are not giving up."
And what was Marcus' response?
said I was going to listen to them."
When Marcus speaks to MSU; what
"They just tell me they can not wait for me to be a Bulldog.
I told them that I am ready to come up there because they need some help."
"They asked me how my season is going and they want me to
come in for a visit. They said when I get ready, lets set up an (official) visit."
Marcus going to take his official visits?
"Yes sir, but I have not
set up any. I am going to wait until after the season is over and then go. Most
colleges worry about it after their season is over. I will take my visits. I plan
on visiting those four schools for sure."
Which position is each college
recruiting Marcus to play?
"USM is either RB or WR. MSU, at first,
they wanted me at strong safety. But I told them I did not know how to play defense
and I was use to offense. I told them I wanted a shot at running back and they
said OK. They told me I could get a shot to play any position I want to play.
They did not want to put me somewhere I did not want to play. They just want me
happy. Ole Miss wants me some where in the secondary, either SS or CB. Alabama
did not really say. They just like me as an athlete."
Is the position
Marcus is recruited for important?
"Not really. If I can help what
ever college I go to win, I will play it."

got hurt in the first game. I had a high ankle sprain. I still played the whole
game against Noxepator and had 109 rushing yards and 5 TD's on 8 carries. I re-injured
it in the second game and had to miss the 3rd game. In our fourth game, I came
back and had 146 yards and 1 TD and a 2 point conversion on 18 carries. I have
had my moments. We are 2-3 now, so hopefully we will turn this thing around. I
feel like I am a whole lot better this year because I play harder and take it
more serious. It is like a job. You do what you got to do and you get paid."
