Marcus McGill, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound wide receiver from Gates-Chili High School in Rochester, N.Y., is trying to find out on Sunday what his status is with Syracuse after watching their spring game yesterday.
"The spring game went well," McGill stated. "I got to talk to Coach Rob Moore for a while and then went over with Coach (Tyrone) Wheatley and Coach (Dan) Conley as well. They were obviously very into the game, but they did spend some time with me while I was up there and they are showing interest."
"The game was played very well and I was watching the receivers who made some really good plays. I could definitely see myself in the offense and the guys were out there working really hard. I do think as a player I bring leadership and playmaking ability, so any school would want that, but watching their offense specifically I really think I could open some things up with my athleticism."
"When I was driving with my father I went past the Newhouse School, so getting to see that was pretty cool," McGill added. "That is what I want to major in, so I've always wanted to see the building. I didn't get to go inside, so it's something I'd definitely like to do at a later date."
McGill currently has one offer from Buffalo and we asked him if Syracuse has let him know where he is on their radar.
"I'm actually planning on calling them today and asking them that very question as I'd like to know because they really have not given me any indication of where I'm at."
As a junior, McGill caught 25 catches for 502 yards and six touchdowns and also threw a touchdown pass. He also returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. On defense he had 27 tackles, four pass break-ups and four interceptions from his cornerback position.
