Eight. More. Days.
We’re sticking with the cornerbacks for a second straight day on the countdown, as we honor Marquis Wilson.
As a true freshman last year, Marquis saw his first game action against Michigan before his breakout performance against Michigan State the following week, garnering an interception that snuffed out any possible rally attempt by Sparty. He would come up with a similar clutch interception in the Cotton Bowl late in the fourth quarter.
Even though he hasn’t cracked a starting spot (yet), look for Marquis to to further solidify himself as a key member of PSU’s secondary group.
