Jamal Marcus didn't see a lot of playing time this past season, but you can probably excuse him for that; he was a true freshman at a deep position, linebacker, and recorded eight tackles in limited minutes.
With Etienne Sabino departing, however, there's going to be some playing time available in 2013. So don't be surprised if Marcus grabs the starting bid and never lets go, because his talent level is sky high.
On national signing day last year, Urban Meyer called Marcus' highlight reel "borderline ridiculous," and he was right—Marcus' closing ability and raw athleticism are insane.
In August, Meyer said this, per ESPN: "There's a kid named Jamal Marcus, he doesn't know which way up is right now, but he knows from Point A to Point B, and he'll run over anything in his way to get to Point B. There's a good chance we'll find a way to get him on the field."
That was in 2012. In 2013, with a year of experience under his belt, Meyer may have trouble finding a way to get Marcus off the field.
