It’s very early at this point, but Marcus Floyd is hoping to continue building a relationship with Notre Dame.
The Irish have been sending the 2015 Kentucky receiver a lot of mail since Sept. 1st.
“They haven’t sent me anything too serious yet, but I know they’re recruiting me,” Floyd said. “It feels really good to know that they’re watching and stuff. Hopefully I’ll have a really good season and they’ll pick up the recruiting of me during the evaluation process.”
It’s a school that would have the Floyd seriously interested.
“I really like Notre Dame, I really do,” he said. “I don’t know too much, but I’ll watch them. I know they always have a lot of good receivers. I like their offense. It’s a real good academic school also and that’s really good.”
The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder from Bryan Station High School in Lexington is still waiting on his first offer, but has been drawing interest for months now.
“Over the summer, I was hearing from Tennessee, Penn State, Notre Dame,” he said. “As soon as Sept. 1st came, I started hearing from Western Kentucky. They invited me on a visit. Kentucky wanted me to come down and I’ve been hearing from Louisville a whole lot. I went down there on a visit and they want me to come back. I also heard from Arkansas and Florida State.”
He believes he could be getting closer to his first offer and wouldn’t be surprised to see it come from a local program.
“I think most of the in-state schools because it’s easier for them to see me play,” he said.
Floyd believes that his ability as a playmaker has caught the attention of college recruiters.
“When I get out there, I go get the ball, I can make plays,” he said. “I have a good combination of speed, hands and route-running. I’m just a hard worker and I’ll make plays.”
Education will be a primary factor in his recruitment.
“First of all, academics. I’m not really worried about getting homesick and stuff. I just want to play football somewhere I can make a difference and help other people out as well as myself. Getting my education will come first and then finding somewhere I can play and win.”
