Weeki Wachee OL Marcus Applefield is becoming one of the North Suncoast’s hottest recruits.

The 6-foot-6, 270-pound athlete picked up his second offer in a week and his first BCS offer, from Rutgers, on Tuesday, Hornets coach Mark Lee said in a text message. Applefield also has offers from Marshall and UMass.

As a junior last fall, he racked up two sacks and 28 tackles during the program’s first all-varsity season. USF, Auburn and West Virginia have also shown interest in Applefield.
