Right now Lexington (Ky.) Bryan Station 2015 wide receiver Marcus Floyd is seeing most of his interest from in-state schools, but if he continues to play well it's only a matter of time before more schools come through to see the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder.
"Recruiting has picked up a lot for me since Sept. 1," Floyd said. "Since then I've been hearing a whole lot from Louisville and Notre Dame. I'm also hearing from Kentucky, Arkansas, Florida State and Western Kentucky."
Floyd missed the summer camp circuit with a knee injury so the early interest came as surprise, so he's not taking it for granted. He's already taken two unofficial visits.
"I went to Louisville for the game against Eastern Kentucky and it was great," he said. "I loved it. It was my first time being there."
The Cardinals have yet to offer, but Floyd hopes they'll pull the trigger in the future.
"I think eventually they'll offer," he said. "I think they're going to evaluate me a little more. They said they're going to come see me play soon."
Following his trip to Louisville, Floyd stayed close to home and watched Kentucky host the Cardinals last weekend.
"I thought it was great," Floyd said of the visit. "I've never been to Kentucky football game even though I live right down the road. I loved the fans and all the support. It was a great game. I talked to [offensive coordinator] Coach Brown after the game and he was at our game the night before that, too."
Floyd said he and Brown plan to keep in touch in the future.
"He was just telling me that we played a great game," Floyd said. "He said he liked what he saw from me and they're going to keep recruiting me."
Floyd was back in Louisville for another visit on Saturday and said he plans to take trips to WKU and Ball State later this fall.
