Nebraska will be getting more than a projected top recruit in Marcus McWilson (No. 191 recruit on Rivals.com), a safety out of Cardinal Mooney H.S. in Youngstown, OH. They’ll be getting an unabashed Belieber.
“OK, I’ll just admit it; I have to listen to Justin Bieber before I hit the field before a game,” McWilson told USA Today’s Jason Jordan. “That’s right, I said it. I listen to his song ‘Baby’ and I love it. I know I’ll get a lot of flack over this, but that’s just my thing. I’ve gotta do it. I just don’t feel right if I don’t hear it before the game.”
McWilson elaborated that, unlike most players and their penchant for hard rock or rap, he likes to “mellow out” before games to the dulcet tones of the Canadian superstar.
If he hasn’t reached out to Michigan basketball player Mitch McGary to form the “Big Ten Athletes Beliebers Club” (or the other way around), we implore that he do so.
