I hurt my knee in the beginning of the season and then we missed another game because of the terrorists," O'Keith told Dawgman.com tonight. "I'm 100 percent right now."
The main thing that can redeem Marcus' season would be a big night against San Pedro this
weekend. This game has BIG implications for Narbonne. "We're 4-4 right now," Marcus said.
"We play San Pedro on Friday. If we win we go to the 4A playoffs. If we lose, we go to the 3A."
In the 5 games O'Keith has played, he's tallied 600 yards and scored 8 times. He'll be looking
for the end zone a lot on Friday. He fully expects to get the help he needs from his offensive

schools, but one in particular has him very interested. "Basically it's Washington,"
O'Keith said when naming his favorite college. "Coach Neuheisel calls me every week. Cal

waiting for him to call so I can set one up."
With all of his favorites having offered, Marcus still feels like Seattle just might be future home.
"I think I'm just going to take at trip to Washington in a few weeks and maybe one other
school," he said. "That's it."
To hear O'Keith talk, you would think he has verbally committed to Washington, but
that talk would be premature. "Not yet!" Marcus said, but then he added, "Well, I'd say I'm about
80 or 85% committed to them right now." So what is holding O'Keith back from making it
official? "I want to take a trip up there to see what everything is like, the
There is still plenty of time to go before Letter of Intent Day, but it looks like Marcus O'Keith has found his college choice. The i's haven't been dotted and the t's haven't been crossed, but it's looking very good for the Huskies at this point. Stay tuned.
