West Jeff's Favorite Still Open
"You're going to write another story for the internet?" Favorite asked. "See, I don't want to give the wrong impression. I've got a top 5 but I'm open to other schools. I haven't ruled anyone out. I still have interest in the other schools."
And offers? "Well, I'd have to check my mail but offhand I'd say I've gotten offers from LSU, Tulane, Nebraska, Oregon, USC, UCLA, Mississippi State, Colorado...well, that's all I can think of right now."
So, Marlon do you have former teammates playing college football? "A lot of guys I played with at (Archbishop) Shaw are playing college ball; Cameron Vaughn, he's at LSU; Charles Castille, he's at a JUCO in California; Leo Deselle, LSU; Freddie King and Dominick Nevil are at Southeastern Louisiana; Jasper Harvey at San Deigo State; and from West Jeff last year Alvin "Freeway' Johnson's a freshman at Tulane."
And how do you stand as far as qualifying goes? "I took the test June 14th and I'm waiting for the score. I've got a 3.0 core GPA, so I should be in pretty good shape."
"And as far as what I'm looking for in a school," Marlon paused, "basically, number one is academics; I want a good football and sports environment; a lot of beautiful women; and I want to be able to enjoy myself."
And let's close with your summer camp itinerary: "I've been so busy I haven't been to any camps. I am going to a camp at LSU on July 19. It's sort of an unofficial visit, we'll stay overnight and take a tour of the campus on July 20. And I'm going to a camp, a combine really, at Colorado July 27th. We're going to stay out there for an unofficial visit until the third of August."
