Thornton QB Quiet On Favorites

Thornton Township (Harvey, Ill) quarterback Marcus Randle El returned from his Wisconsin visit Monday evening.

"It went real good," Randle El said. "I had a nice time. I liked a lot of things down there. They showed me a good time."

Randle El's visit took place on an unconventional Saturday-Monday timeframe because he took the ACT test Saturday.

Randle El has also taken official visits to Wake Forest (Nov. 22) and Indiana (Dec. 5) and will visit Northwestern Jan. 9. Currently, Randle El is deciding between the four schools, but does he have a favorite?

"Not really," he said. "I don't really want to put that out there yet."

Randle El, who said he had "1,600 yards passing and 16 touchdowns and 1,200 yards rushing and 14 touchdowns," would like to play quarterback in college. Wake Forest, Indiana and Northwestern are recruiting him as a quarterback, while Wisconsin is recruiting him as an athlete. According to Randle El, the Badgers would give him a shot at quarterback but he could play defensive back or return kicks if offense does not work out.

"I could come in and play quarterback as long as I get the job done," Randle El said. "I can get the job done as long as I come in and compete."

Randle El was not ready to compare the visits he has taken.

"Honestly not really," he said. "I'm going to sit down tonight and think about, just look over some stuff, see how I feel."
