Fort Pierce (Fla.) Fort Pierce Central three-star running back Marcus Levy hit the road this weekend, making his way to South Carolina to check out their annual spring game.
"It was a pretty good visit," Levy said. "It is a pretty big campus. From what I got to see, I liked it a lot. I didn't get to take a tour of the whole college, but from what I did see it was pretty good. It seemed like a nice place to be."
As for the game itself, Levy paid close attention to the offensive attack, specifically the running backs, for the Gamecocks.

"It was a pretty intense game," Levy said. "I thought the offensive line did pretty good. I like how they run the ball. They do have a real good offense. They throw the ball a lot, but they will also run it. I liked what I saw."
In addition to watching the Garnet and Black game at Williams-Brice Stadium, Levy also had an opportunity to speak with some of the assistant coaches on Steve Spurrier's staff.
"I talked with a few coaches including the running backs coach (Everette Sands) for a little bit," Levy said. "He just asked me if I liked the campus and everything. We talked about them wanting to get me back up there for camp during the summer. I am pretty sure when I go back up there I will spend a little more time with him, sit down and talk about a lot of things."
Levy didn't have the option to sit down one-on-one with Steve Spurrier but he also hopes to do that when he returns to Columbia this summer.
"Coach Spurrier just met with all of the recruits and spoke to us briefly in a big room," Levy said. "We didn't really get to talk. I am supposed to be going back up there during the summer and I hope to speak more with him then."
The 5-foot-10, 187-pound back says he didn't consider making a commitment during the visit.
"I didn't," Levy said when asked if he considered committing. "I am going to wait and see who else offers before I make a final decision on where I am going to spend my next three or four years at."
At this point in the process, Levy claims offers from Boise State, Bowling Green, Florida International, Massachusetts, Mississippi State, South Carolina, and Western Kentucky. Numerous other schools are interested and expected to further evaluate him during the spring. He intends to enter spring football in May without a leader.
"I don't really have a leader right now," Levy said. "I am trying not to name a leader just yet because I am going to visit other places and I don't want it to change with each visit. I am going to take a little time and see what some schools have to offer and once I do that then I will probably be ready to name my top schools."
Levy mentioned plans to visit South Florida next weekend for their spring game. He said his next visits after that will likely be during the summer when he plans to take an extensive tour stopping on numerous college campuses, including South Carolina.
