A look at a 2013 BC commit, outside linebacker Marquis Little
Hometown: Manchester, Connecticut
High School: Manchester High School
Position: Outside Linebacker
Weight: 215 lbs
Rankings: Rivals 2* (position NR, State 8), Scout 2* (position NR), ESPN 3* (rated a 68, 184 position, 13 state), 247 Sports 3* (rated an 79, position 144 state 7). Boston College was his only offer. Originally recruited by Mike Siravo.
Strengths: Though it's hard to tell from the video, because he is playing against opponents that he won't face in college. Again his highlights show a great ability to shed tackles, and diagnose plays quickly, both which will be important for a Boston College linebacker.
Realistic Outlook: Not sure if he will see much playing time this season, especially with the log jam at linebacker. But with injuries, you never know, so it's always a positive to have some depth ready just in case. He is going to need a lot of practice to get ready for ACC level football, but he seems to have the tools to be an effective linebacker. Would like to see him improve a little on quickness and speed, but otherwise a solid recruit.
