Sumler Names USM In Top Two

Southern Miss had a huge list of recruits on campus this weekend for the Houston game, and is following up on some of the visits. One player that is high on USM is a top Florida running back, and we've got the details in this interview.

Marquis Sumler profile

Don't let his size fool you, opponents want nothing to do with the explosive 5'8 Marquis Sumler of Pensacola Catholic High School in Pensacola, Florida.

"I had a really good season, I was pleased with how I did for my senior year," he said. "I rushed for over 1,400 yards and I had 26 touchdowns."

Sumler is an explosive back who is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. Watching film he would remind USM fans of the shifty Tracey Lampley.

He was all set to make his official visit on campus, but got an unfortunate change of plans. "I was on my way there and I got in a car accident Saturday morning, so I wasn't able to make it," he informed us.

"I do have interest in Southern Miss," he added. "I like it because they run the same offense that our school runs, and I think I would be a good fit there." His interest is high, and Southern Miss is in the top two for the explosive back.

"I am also considering Vanderbilt," he said. "Other than that, it is just Southern Miss. I have received an offer and am very interested. I probably won't make a decision though until National Signing Day. I really want to take my time with my decision." Recommended Stories
