Philadelphia (Pa.) St. John Neumann lineman Marques Slocum is one the Keystone State's top line prospects. A varsity starter at defensive tackle since his freshman year, Slocum also started at offensive guard during his sophomore and junior seasons.
The 6-foot-6 and 330 pound Slocum bench presses 300 pounds and squats 400. He registered eight sacks during his junior season.
"I want to play defense in college," Slocum says. "They (recruiters) say I can come in and play whatever position I want."
"I visited Boston College, Syracuse, and Maryland. On April 17 I'm going to Virginia Tech and Virginia."
"Wisconsin offered a scholarship in writing last week. Today LSU said they are going to offer. Maryland, Syracuse, Boston College, and Michigan State offered. And my coach said Michigan is going to offer. And West Virginia offered."
"And I like all the Florida schools."
