Marcus McWilson represents the first in what should become a long line of Ohio players heading down to the Bluegrass and becoming Wildcats. He is a 6'0" 195lb safety out of Mark Stoops alma mater Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio. Rivals ranks him as the 18th safety, 196th nationally overall, and 10th in Ohio overall.
He is going to be a huge part of the defense that Stoops is trying to build. He was originally a Nebraska signee and decomitted when Vince Marrow signed on to the Kentucky staff.
This kid is the kind of hard hitting, no nonsense type of safety that UK has desperately needed the last few years. The secondary is going to have to be lightning quick and able to wrap up a one on one tackle.
Welcome to the Big Blue Nation, Marcus. We are so glad to have you aboard. Now go tackle someone!!
