Two years ago, Cherry Hill (N.J.) Camden Catholic produced three top D-IA prospects (QB Nick Cangelosi, WR Byron Williams and LB Joe Kedra). This year, wide receiver Marcus Wilson is the player to watch at Camden Catholic, and he could be better than any of them.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound wideout was timed at 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash last summer and already has offers from Rutgers as well as Boston College and Maryland.
"I like this three schools a lot, but I'm also interested in Ohio State, Michigan, Virginia, Tennessee and Iowa."
As a junior Wilson had 48 catches for 625 yards and seven touchdowns. This super athlete is also a very good cornerback on defense. Last year he had 73 tackles and four interceptions.
"I prefer playing offense in college and that's what most schools are recruiting me for."
Wilson was selected all-conference; all-parochial and second team all-South Jersey. He still is still not exactly sure what summer camps he will attend, but Virginia, Iowa and Rutgers are all in the running.
What is Marcus looking for in a college?
“A good football program that offers a great education. I would like to attend a school that has a history of going to bowls and winning.”
