NEW CASTLE, Pennsylvania (WKBN) – New Castle’s Marcus Hooker officially signed his National Letter of Intent to Ohio State Wednesday on early signing day.

The consensus three-star prospect is the younger brother of former Buckeyes’ All-American and current Indianapolis Colt Malik Hooker.

During his time with the Red Hurricanes, Marcus Hooker played running back, wide receiver, and quarterback on offense. Defensively, he appeared at cornerback, safety, and linebacker.

After signing his letter of intent, he is thrilled to call himself a Buckeye.

“I was just shocked when everything happened,” Hooker said. “I was just so surprised how everything happened so fast. It felt like just like yesterday that I was at the camp, working out and talking to the coaches and seeing how everything was going. I’m just very blessed to be in this position right now and I thank God that He blessed me with all these abilities and the things I can do. I’m not going to take that for granted. I just can’t wait to get down there and show them what I will do,” he added.

Hooker scored 17 touchdowns as a junior, helping the Red Hurricanes reach the WPIAL Class 4A final.  He rushed for more than 1,100 yards as a senior this Fall.

He tallied 44 tackles, two forced fumbles and a sack during his junior season.

Hooker is also a standout basketball player for New Castle, and has already scored over 1,000 career points.
