Four-star safety Kadetrix Marcus (Stone Mountain, Ga./Stephenson), a hot commodity this recruiting season, recently proclaimed South Carolina his leader.

"They are my favorite and I like everything about them," Marcus said. "I love their [defensive] scheme and the offense is great. They are improving. I think I fit their defense well and I think I can come in there and play some nickel and some corner. They like me though as a free safety. I was there for their win over Alabama. That was a great atmosphere."

The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder rounds out his top five with Tennessee, USF, Miami and West Virginia. Marcus is still waiting on a scholarship offer from the Hurricanes.
