#91 Marcus Smith
Class: Junior Ht/Wt: 6-3/256 Position: Defensive End Hometown: Columbus, GA
Louisville’s Take: Former quarterback who immediately made the switch to linebacker... was moved to defensive end in the fall and immediately made an impact... good pass rusher who led the team in sacks... showed an ability to get to the quarterback.
Thoughts: Marcus started five games last year and probably would have contributed more if he hadn’t got bit by the dreaded Louisville injury bug. Marcus is another Junior Defensive lineman who has grown with the program over the last three years. As previously mentioned, Marcus led Louisville in sacks last year with five and half. He also contributed six and a half tackles for loss and two forced fumbles. I seemed to remember a forced fumble in the Cincy game……
Yeah, that’s the one.
Potential Nicknames: "The Hammer", "Cardinal Crusher"
A side note to the aforementioned Louisville injury bug: I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for insects like you. If you let my team go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
