The 5-foot-8, 175-pound prospect says that a majority of schools are recruiting him as an athlete. He said he would prefer to play offense, but isn't automatically eliminating schools looking at him for defense.
"If I go to a school and I really like my visit, then I would play cornerback," Marcellus said. "I prefer offense but I am not going to eliminate anybody because of where they want me to line up at."
Boise State was one school that Marcellus specifically mentioned as recruiting him at cornerback.
As for a leader in his recruitment, the South Florida prospect isn't ready to start narrowing things down.
"I haven't went to any of these schools so I am not going to put a school in front," Marcellus said. "I like all of my offers and my choices are open."
He was hoping to use the summer months to go out and earn more offers at camps while also taking visits but an injury has derailed those plans.
"I was supposed to go to a whole bunch of summer camps but now everything is canceled because I have a dislocated elbow," Marcellus said. "So I have to get cleared on that first."
The plan is to now utilize visits during the college football regular season to help him reach a decision.
"I am going to take all of my visits during football season," Marcellus said. "I will take all of my official visits before I make a decision."
When it comes time to hit the road, Marcellus knows a few locations he definitely wants to make it to.
"I know I want to go to West Virginia, Cincinnati, Boise State, and Vanderbilt," Marcellus said.
As a junior, Marcellus had 691 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns on 62 carries. He also recorded 34 receptions for 747 yards and seven touchdowns. On the defensive side of the ball, he recorded 15 tackles and three interceptions.
