Bulls Offer Largo Standout LB

Largo standout linebacker Mike Marry had an astonishing Junior season, and has already begun to rack up the offers, including one from the home town Bulls. Find out about the exciting LB prospect, and find out who else has offered. Get informed, only on USFNation.com!

Mike Marry of Largo high school is one of the most talented athletes in the area, and is a name that Bulls fans should remember in '08.


Last season Marry helped lead his Largo Packers team to an undefeated season and a playoff run into the Class 5A state semi-finals state championship for the first time in the programs history, where they lost to St. Thomas Aquinas.


"We had a good run last year and I'm working hard in the weight room to get even better for next year."


During the undefeated season, Marry was named First team All-County, and was also an All-state honorable mention after recording an amazing 152 tackles,  4 sacks, 3 interceptions, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovered.


‘I'm hard working, competitive and dedicated to the game." "I like to hit and don't shy away from contact."


As a sophomore Marry recorded 76 tackles playing at 6'2-162 pounds, but has since put on 50 pounds and was an improved player.


"I got a lot stronger and got faster actually. In my sophomore year I ran a 4.7.


With his current size, 6-foot-3, 210 pounds and running a 4.6 forty, it's no secret why the USF staff was quick to offer Marry.


"Right now I have offers from Stanford, Kentucky, South Carolina, USF, West Virginia, and UCF."


The Largo standout plays linebacker, tight end, and full back, but it's the linebacker position that most schools are recruiting him at.

"Right now I play middle linebacker, but schools are talking to me about playing all three linebacker positions."


Marry has already garnered a lot of interest from top tier programs, but wasn't ready to name any favorites yet.

"Right now I don't have any favorites. I'm still learning about the schools that have offered me."


The talented linebacker does have an idea of what he's looking for in a program.


"Off the field I'm looking for a school with a good engineering program. On the field, I like all types of defenses. It will mostly depend on what type of coaches they have."

Right now he hasn't set his plans for the spring/summer camps, but he was invited to participate in the New Level Athletics elite passing camp; a skill showcase for the best athletes and biggest names in high school football, that will be held at the USF campus on March 29-30.
