Getting To Know Marcus Williamson

Marcus Williamson is a 4-star cornerback from local Westerville South High School. Marcus is a 2017 prospect and recently sat down with me to discuss his recruitment that has just recently started to take off. Currently Marcus only owns an offer from the University of Toledo, but that could change very soon. When asked who has been in contact with him, Marcus responded “Mostly Ohio State, but I am also hearing some from Michigan State and Indiana.”
Marcus recently took in campus when he visited for Ohio State’s ‘Friday Night Lights’. When asked how he thought he performed and what stood out, Marcus said “ I performed pretty well, had a pick, a few knockdowns and the camp was overall good because Ohio State did a good job of showing the recruits what it is like to play at Ohio State. I think that in its self would influence anyone to want to play there.”

When asked what an offer would mean from Ohio State and if he could possible commit on the spot, Marcus responded “It would mean a lot. Me living in Columbus would pay a huge part in to me possibly committing on the spot.” Marcus said that he talks to Coach [Kerry] Coombs about once a week and he plans on visiting Ohio State during the Virginia Tech game.

Marcus was just recently named a composite 4-star by 247sports and when probed on what it meant to him, Marcus said “It feels so great that people think so highly of me on the field. It is an honor to be noticed and to have 4-stars by my name. It speaks volumes about the hard work that I’ve put in over the years.”

Obviously the local product, Marcus Williamson, is very interested in the Buckeyes and the interest must be mutual as Ohio State has recently been in touch. Landing a 4-star local product would be nice for the Buckeyes and you have to like their chances with the quotes Marcus gave me. Marcus Williamson is a name that may just be starting to get some publicity, but there is no doubt that the name and the football player is here to stay. When asked what he would like to say to Buckeye fans everywhere, Marcus responded with a short and sweet, “Go Bucks!”
