#48 Marcus Watson

Class: Sophomore

Ht/Wt: 6-2/284

Position: Defensive Line

Hometown: Burlington, KY

Twitter: N/A

Thoughts: Marcus was a walk-on for the Cards last season from Randall Cooper High School out in Burlington, KY. Marcus played both sides of the ball in high school (Defensive tackle and tackle) and dabbled in basketball as well, because….Kentucky. I’d expect Marcus to continue to contribute on the practice squad this year focusing mostly on the defensive side of the ball.

In my digging I did find some info that pointed towards Marcus actually getting a full ride academic scholarship to Louisville. If true, big congrats to him on that major accomplishment.

Sweet Tweet: No twitter for Marcus that I could locate so take a few minutes to check out this video on Marcus’ new defensive coordinator…Peter Sirmon.
