Dupree says he's keeping options open

By By Richard Dark/The Meridian Star
JAN. 11, 2001
Contrary to reports by several media outlets in recent days, Philadelphia standout running back Marquez Dupree has not officially committed to play football at the University of Southern Mississippi.
Cheatham, whose Tornadoes finished the year 8-3 with a first-round playoff loss to Taylorsville, did say Dupree had not ruled out USM.
Dupree himself said the confusion didn't rule out any schools he was considering.
He said his final decision would probably come later this month. Dupree, the son of former high school legend and NFL running back Marcus Dupree, rushed for nearly 1,300 yards this season and scored 16 touchdowns.
