Marcus keeps in regular touch with Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell. They speak once a week.
"It seems like they're trying to win and become a better team," Marcus told CUTigers.com. "That's what stands out to me, what I see with them."
The Tigers' 2011 signing class, in particular, was impressive.
"They have a real strong class coming in, this one," he said. "It looks like they're going to do something really good in the future."
N.C. State, North Carolina, Duke, Minnesota, Auburn, Wake Forest, East Carolina, Maryland, Vanderbilt and Georgia Tech have offered.
"I don't really have a list, right now, but I'm taking a lot of schools into consideration," Marcus said.
There are several things that he'll be on the look-out for as he continues through the recruiting process.
"The first thing with me is academics," Marcus said. "[Then] what school I can go to and fit in the most with the football team and the team atmosphere, the atmosphere around campus—where I'm going to spend the next four years of my life at."
As a junior, he recorded 45 tackles and 14 sacks.
