Coaches' Comments: "Marcus is a fifth-year senior who is a great leader and has assumed part of the leadership role vacated by Willie (Howard) and Riall (Johnson). We have a group of great leaders, and he's just one of them on the defense this year. He has really honed in his game, and we expect him to play at a high level of efficiency this season. He is sound technically, and very strong. Marcus is going to be a major player in our defensive scheme in 2001." - defensive ends coach Phil Zacharias
