Playing on one of the top teams in the state of New Jersey brings attention. Possessing sub 4.5 speed in the 40 and being one of the most elusive players in the state will bring attention as well. Don Bosco Prep wide receiver/defensive back Marquise Liverpool has both of these things going for him.

“Marquise is a great athlete who has great timing,” said Don Bosco head coach Greg Toal. “He runs a 4.49 40, and possesses fine football speed and quickness. He’s really good at baseball as well – he had 15 triples last year as a junior. He’s just a great all-around athlete.”

Liverpool acknowledges the benefits of being apart of the state champion Don Bosco Ironmen. His teammates include quarterback Mike Teel, who has verbally committed to Rutgers, and Brian Toal, the coach’s son who promises to be one of the most heavily recruited linebackers in the country.

Teel and Liverpool connected for nine touchdowns last season.

“It’s great and exciting,” said Liverpool of being apart of one of the most talented teams in New Jersey. “I’m looking forward to having another productive season.”

Thirteen schools have offered a scholarship, with most of the programs recruiting him as an athlete because of his ability on offense and defense. Liverpool did not name any favorites.

“I don’t really have any favorites,” said Liverpool. “I’m wide open. I will take official visits, but I’m just not sure where yet.”

Liverpool has received written offers from Virginia, Boston College, Rutgers, and Syracuse. He appears very much interested in the Cavaliers.

“Absolutely,” said Liverpool when asked if he is considering the Cavaliers. “I like the area and the history of the school. They are recruiting me as an athlete. Al Golden, Al Groh, and Bob Price have all spoken with me.”

While he excels on the gridiron, his success on a baseball diamond may be worth watching. He would like to continue playing baseball in college, and has played in a baseball league throughout this summer.

“I want to play baseball, maybe more so than football,” said Liverpool.
