Cincy next for Valdes

Marquez Valdez

Marquez Valdez (St. Petersburg, Fla./Lakewood) is a big wide receiver recruit that will visit Cincinnati this weekend.

Marquez Valdes (St. Petersburg, Fla./Lakewood) is an under the radar receiver from the Sunshine State. He has some great size and great tools to become an outstanding receiver at the next level. Valdez, 6-foot-three and 200-pounds, made his third official visit this past weekend. He checked out the Wolfpack.

"I really enjoyed my North Carolina State visit," Valdez said. "The campus, players and coaching staff are just great. I also got to go to the basketball game and saw them beat Duke. The fans stormed the court. It was crazy."

Valdez made official visits to both Houston and Toledo in December. This coming week he will trip to Cincinnati (1-18).

"I am not sure who I will visit after that," Valdez said. "Missouri, South Florida and Minnesota are some of the schools I am considering. I am not sure where I want to visit just yet."

Valdez is looking to major in sports management and become an agent, so academics are a big part of his decision.

"They have to have my major because I want to become an agent," Valdez said. "I want to play early or a chance to compete and play early." Recommended Stories
