Mike Marry is a three-star linebacker prospect from Largo (Fla.) High School. Marry, 6-3 and 205 pounds, helped lead the Packers to a 12-2 record before losing to Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas in the state semi-finals. Now he's practicing for the North-South Florida All-Star Game that will be held in Sebring, Florida next Tuesday night.
"It's going good here at practice for the North-South game," Marry said. "I am making some new friends as well. I'm excited to be playing in it."
Marry has already officially visited Iowa State over the fall. He has two scheduled visits in January, one to Duke (1-16) and the other to Ole Miss (1-23).
"I like coach (Jim) Collins and all the coaches seem cool. Duke has great academics and coach (David) Cutcliffe has them headed in the right direction. They will get good soon.
"I like the coaches at Ole Miss too. Dexter McCluster is enjoying it up there and he tells me great things about the Rebels.
"I am not sure about the other two visits. I think West Virginia may get one. I like those coaches and their style of defense."
