I'm might be late to the dance (sorry guys, I get to the board when I can) but, is a non-visit to Kentucky this weekend help our chances? Or, have I missed out completely and Marcus has already stated he's still committed to the Huskers? ...thanks in advance.
LJS reported a few days ago that he's thinking about visiting Kentucky (this weekend) and that he's definitely still committed to Nebraska. Sounds like he wants to do is good friend Marrow a solid and visit. If he doesn't visit this weekend (i think it's 50/50) then he's with us 100%, if he visits, I still think he sticks with us but Kentucky definitely ups their chances.
UK fans are very confident right now. Not sure why.
Think there are lots of rumors floating around that he's already a Kentucky commit and is just waiting to announce. I doubt their authenticity, but you know how rumors are...

there's one blogger that's perpetuating that... and he's been wrong on 2 of the 3 things so far.
You have to sympathize with Marcus. He's a very solid young man, and great talent. He's been committed to NU longer than anyone. He's got a very good relationship with Bo and J.P., and that hasn't changed.
If I remember correctly, I think Marcus has been to one or two other schools while joining a teammate being recruited to that school. I thought one of those trips was to tOSU, but I wouldn't swear by that. He didn't go along to test his interest in NU, but just to have fun and enjoy the opportunity.
Mark Stoops is a graduate of Cardinal Mooney H.S., as is Bo, Tim Beck, and Vince Marrow. You can't blame Mark for reaching out to Marcus, as I gather the McWilson family knows him and Vince.
Just my take, I believe Marcus to be a considerate young man put into a little bit of a predicament, probably trying to accommodate a lot of people close to the family. I believe he will be a Husker, and stay faithful to his commitment. You have to appreciate his situation, which we all have questioned to some degree during this process. I believe him to be a real trooper and a solid young man to have endured all of the controversy surrounding him.
As a side note, and in retrospect, I don't think that Vince Marrow should have been questioned in fulfilling his duties as a new coach, as Mark Stoops is the guy driving the program at Kentucky and we can't fault him for trying to do his best to bring in a good recruiting class, while reaching out to kids at his Alma Mater. I've been just as guilty as others conjuring up some kind of scheming going on.
Often times, you just have to step back and put everything in perspective, which doesn't always happen on recruiting forums where we're all immediate-oriented for the most part.

Not surprising. Shocking how easy it is for stuff like that to get legs.
