Catawissa (Pa.) Southern Columbia offensive lineman Josh Marks continues to consider his five scholarship offers. But a trio of other schools are in the mix for the 6-foot-5 and 300-pounder.
"Penn State, West Virginia, Temple, Rutgers and Pitt have offered," Marks said. "I'm interested in all of those schools.
"I plan to take a trip to Clemson sometime in the near future. I've already visited Ohio State and Michigan. I'd say those three schools plus the ones that have offered are the ones I'm interested in."
Marks has taken a pretty good look at all of the schools except Clemson.
"I've visited all the schools that offered," Marks said. "I went to the Ohio State-Northwestern football game. I went to Michigan's camp last summer and a spring practice last year."
But the two in-state schools are the ones to beat.
"As far as favorites, I really like Penn State and Pitt," Marks said. "But I still have a lot of thinking to do. I hope to make my decision sometime in the middle of September."
Marks has been a varsity starter at defensive tackle since his freshman year. He also started at either offensive tackle or guard the past two seasons and is projected as an offensive lineman in college.
