About a week ago it was revealed that offensive guard/defensive tackle Marques Slocum would be making his decision in late January, and that he was down to two schools. Does that remain the case?
"Yes, I'm still going to decide between Michigan and Michigan State, and the decision will be on Jan. 19," he said. "I've just really talked to the coaches at those schools a lot, and after seeing the schools I knew I had to pick one of the two."
The massive 6-foot-4, 331-pound lineman from Philadelphia (Pa.) West Catholic is rated the No. 1 offensive guard in the nation, and the No. 36 overall prospect in the nation. For someone with Slocum's size, he moves with remarkable quickness, running the 40-yard dash in 5.06 seconds.
"I've been staying in contact with the coaches at UM and MSU the past week or so, just trying to work things out here in the last few weeks. They're both really even right now, and I don't know where I'd go if I had to make a decision today. I just haven't made up my mind yet.
"But I really don't think any other schools are going to get involved. I've listened to what just about everyone else can offer, and I'm set on these two. Those are who I'll choose between on Jan. 19."
