Tennessee ATH Talks Camp, Favorites
"I recently went to the Ole Miss 7-on-7 camp," said Marcus Hightower from Memphis, (Tenn.). "I thought I did pretty good. There was a lot of good competition out there." "I think I am going to the Tennessee camp. I am going to a few more camps, but I don't know where yet." Hightower recorded over 1,000 all-purpose yards during his junior season. He recorded 596 yards in special teams returning two kick-offs for touchdowns. He also added 16 tackles on defense. He has received one scholarship offer heading into his senior season and is receiving interest from numerous schools. "I have an offer from Indiana. Mississippi State has talked about offering me. A bunch of other schools have talked about offering me as well," he said. "The main schools recruiting me are Indiana, Middle Tennessee, Mississippi State, Kentucky, Miami and Ole Miss. I would say my favorites are Oklahoma State and Miami." Oklahoma State: "When I was evaluating schools and looking at their roster I looked at the situation that would fit me best. I like the way they use their athletes, and let them move around on the field." Miami: "They are a big-time school who gets a lot of exposure. You go out there and compete. It's a big step up. They use their athletes for kick-off return and punt return. I would like to showcase my athletic ability." The talented prospect stands 6-0.5, 176-pounds, and he talks about the position he prefers on the next level. "I am being recruited by every school as an athlete. I play running back, receiver, punt return, kick return and cornerback. Nobody is recruiting me for one specific position. I would rather play offense--like as a wide out," Hightower stated.
