New York Receiver Planning to Visit Rutgers

Upstate New York is producing plenty of talent these days, and one such player is Gates-Chili High (Rochester) receiver Marcus McGill. He spoke to about his recruitment, the schools he knows the most about, and how intense his contact is with Rutgers.

The Rochester (N.Y.) area is starting to produce plenty of Division I talent, and it is a place Rutgers is recruiting hard.

One of the targets in the 2012 class is Gates-Chili High receiver Marcus McGill, who holds an offer from Buffalo and is getting recruited from a number of other schools, including Rutgers.

"I've spoken with Rutgers quite often," McGill said. "(Rutgers assistant) coach (Bob Fraser) told me I'm doing all the right things and not to worry about the offer yet.

"I've been there a couple of times, and I plan on going there this spring, possibly a spring practice, or the spring game."

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound McGill made 25 catches for 502 yards and six touchdowns as a junior, and also made 27 tackles and had four interceptions from his cornerback position.

He is also being recruited by Boston College, Louisville, Syracuse, Wisconsin, Bowling Green and Temple.

"At this point I don't (have a leader)," McGill said. "Buffalo is a great program, really looking to turn it around with a new staff, and they're also looking to bring in more New York athletes, which is always a plus."

McGill also knows plenty about Rutgers.

"I know Rutgers is looking to turn the program up, especially with this 2011 signing class," McGill said. "They really signed the top athletes this year and I'm very impressed."

McGill is trying to figure out when he will make a decision.

"I was originally planning on committing before going into my (senior) season," he said, "but I'll decide when I know I've got the right school."
