Highly recruited 3-Star DB from Houston commits to the Tigers! LSU catches one of the best CB's in Texas. Marcus has connections to the State of Louisiana that didn't hurt the situation.
Some have brought up the fact Marcus was only ranked as a 3-star recruit. I would say to look at precisely what Corey Raymond and LSU is looking for in a DBU type player. Long and athletic, standing 6'0 and 170 pounds Marcus fits that DBU mold. The technique can be coached, but size and athleticism is god gifted. We all know Stars don't always tell the whole story. The list goes on and on with players who overachieved and underachieved to the star evaluation system.
Overall I think LSU grabbed a great player with a very high upside. Time will tell if he fits the DBU mold, but early results look very positive. Marcus also has a very supportive family who's been through a lot recently. As a new tiger, it's our job as fans to support him and his family and show them what it means to be an LSU Tiger! #GEAUXTIGERS #HoldThatTiger
