"There's a good possibility I am going to commit to Ole Miss after I talk to my parents when they get home from work," Marcus Robinson said about where his recruitment stands. "I have to talk it over with my parents first. I will be talking to them tonight and will make my decision from there. I just want to get the ok from them before I go ahead and commit, but they really like Ole Miss and their coaches so I do not think that is going to be a problem."
The Memphis East standout was a long time Arkansas commit but the change of staffs opened the door for the Rebels.
"I just like the family environment around there, and coaches (Maurice) Harris and (Freeze) came after me the hardest. They called me every week no matter if I was committed to Arkansas or not. They just stayed on me hard the whole way through and never let up."
Scout.com's #32 rated outside linebacker sees himself in the rotation next fall at Ole Miss.
"They want me to play some weakside linebacker, but if I gain a little weight I could play some strong side linebacker. My biggest strength is covering in pass coverages. I can get after the passer pretty good too. I am just going to go in there to Ole Miss and play my hardest and put it in God's hands. If I put my heart into it I know I can start or get a lot of playing time. Ole Miss is not scared to play their freshmen. I saw all of those freshmen playing this season and that really caught my attention. Tonight is going to be a good night. I can't wait to make that call."
Marcus had 84 tackles and 2 interceptions on defense and 12 catches for 234 yards and 3 TD's on offense. He was named 1st Team All-State.
Memphis East is expected to send three players for official visits to Ole Miss this weekend. Marcus will be joined by OC Bobby Billingsley and Herbert Moore. Christian Morris moved his visit to Ole Miss to next weekend due to a basketabll game that he has to play in this Saturday.
