- 2005 NFL DRAFT PROSPECT
A three-year starter that emerged his sophomore campaign to
lead the defensive line in tackles (66) and sacks (5.5) in 2002.
Marcus is a multi-talented player who has an incredibly quick
initial step at the point of attack for someone his size. He
is a disruptive force in the middle of the Aggies’ defensive
front and is notorious for his ability for blocking field goals
and PAT attempts. His rare athletic ability and soft hands were
cultivated in his basketball days and were showcased when he
returned a kickoff for 9 yards and had a pass thrown in his
direction on a fake punt in a game against Oklahoma. Marcus
posted a career-high 11 tackles against Missouri in 2002.
Born November 15, 1982, he is the son of Thomas and Shirley
Jasmin. He enjoys spending time with his family and is still
a huge basketball fan. His
favorite basketball team is the Los Angeles Lakers and his
favorite football team is the New Orleans Saints. In high
school, Marcus was a two-sport standout who earned All-District
and All-Metro honors in basketball averaging 17 points and
10 rebounds a per game. Despite only playing one year of football,
he was named all-district. He is an Agricultural Development
Major at Texas A&M University.
