Atlanta ATH Holds WFU Offer

Marcus Caffey is one of the most versatile and talented athletes in the state of Georgia for this recruiting class -- and his offer list proves that colleges around the country believe in his ability.

Plenty of schools from across the South have offered scholarships to the 6-0, 175-pound prospect, though there isn't a consensus yet on what position he is best suited for. Marcus Caffey told DeaconSports that some schools, such as South Carolina, Arkansas, Kentucky and Ole Miss, have offered him to play cornerback, while others such as Purdue, Minnesota and Vanderbilt believe he would make an excellent running back.

Caffey doesn't have a preference when it comes to what position he plays in college, and it's clear that he doesn't have a preference as far as schools go yet. He denied having a leader and you get the sense that he's genuinely torn with so many quality schools and football programs involved.

Wake Forest is one of the schools that has offered Caffey, and while the Demon Deacons haven't spoken to the Atlanta (GA) Grady prospect a lot they are in the running.

"It's a school I'm looking at. My dad's from North Carolina and right now that's my only offer in North Carolina," he said of Wake Forest.

"I just spoke to coach (Brian) Knorr, I think. I'm probably going to take an unofficial visit up there sometime this summer. Coach Knorr said he wants me to get up there but really didn't clarify any dates."

Caffey is also thinking about taking an unofficial visit to Vanderbilt, though he remains flexible. He has a couple of 7-on-7 camps with his high school team coming up so he will have to plan around those events.

The most recent school to offer is Purdue and Caffey mentioned that he has started talking to Tennessee a little bit. He said he has not visited any schools recently.
