Remember Marcus Ball? The video above might jog your memory. The guy was a headhunting 4-Star linebacker coming out of high school. He signed with FSU and had solid freshman and sophomore seasons. But after getting caught up in the academic scandal of 2007 he asked to be released from his scholarship. Whatever the reason, apparently FSU made a lasting impression on Ball. A few days ago he told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
"I had a great time while I was there. I'll always be a Seminole."
So whatever happened to Marcus? He landed at a Mississippi JC, then spent his last two years of elegibility at Memphis. After impressing scouts the past two seasons at Toronto in the CFL, Ball was on the radar of at least four NFL teams. And he recently signed a three-year contract with New Orleans. Watch for him this fall wearing a Saints jersey with the number 36.
