@off1cal_marcus (Marcus Floyd, Jr.) from @BourbonFootball is blowing up! @859ravensfb @davidjones_7 @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin

Marcus Floyd, Jr.

Floyd is super athletic, has a 38-inch vertical, and has lengthened to 5-11. Floyd is a DB set to terrorize District 5 and the rest of the 4A classification.

David Jones, Head Football Coach, Bourbon County High

We don’t know how many of you have noticed, but Coach David Jones has the Bourbon County Colonels looking the part these days. We love Bo Stinson (’23), whom we have before covered on this site and also love players like Cam Santiago (’23, pictured, bottom right), Clay Estes (’23), and Cam Ron Goodwin (’23). These are all players we have either featured or who are in the rotation to be featured.

We love Marcus Floyd, Jr. too. He could be the prize of the litter.

Floyd may end up leaving Bourbon County the career interceptions leader. He has 11-INTs going into his senior campaign.

Floyd is an athletic freak. What else do you call a guy with a 38-inch vertical who is 5-11, has plus length, and can play corner?

Coach Jones told KPGFootball Floyd is a 4.4 to 4.5-second, 40-yard dash guy. “His speed is legit,” said the head football coach and former UK Wildcat and Baltimore Raven who would certainly know speed when he is seeing it.

“Floyd is super athletic, has a 38-inch vertical, and has lengthened to 5-11,” Coach Jones told KPGFootball. “Floyd is a DB set to terrorize District 5 and the rest of the 4A classification.”

Jones didn’t have to vouch for this kid’s speed with us. The 38-inch vertical did that sufficiently.

Floyd, who was avoided like the Plague by opposing offensive passing attacks, still had a very productive year in ’21. Floyd had 27.5 tackles, a TFL, an INT, a pair of FRs, and led the team in PBUs (Passes Broken Up).

Athletes like Floyd often pull duty on both sides of the football, especially in high school and even at the 4A level. In ’21, Floyd led the team in yards per reception with over 30-yards per snag.

Twenty-nine percent (29%) of his receptions went for TDs. That is pretty darn close to every third reception going to the house.

College football programs are all over this guy. Corners like Floyd are hard to find. Floyd can play WR at the next level and is almost assured of being involved with special teams as either a kick or punt returner.

Columbia, in the Ivy League, is circling. That fact alone should tell you something about his grades and standardized test scores.

Now Floyd is another prospect who is a member of the Lexington Ravens program. The Ravens pump into the city the very finest football prospects Lexington has to offer.

This isn’t our first Raven to feature on this site. It became time for us to give the program its due, and so we are doing so right now.

Floyd is a ’23 kid who is “blowing up,” as prospects like to say nowadays. We’re just glad we’re around to bring readers the explosion.
