Former Philadelphia West Catholic defensive tackle Marques Slocum has put in a lot of time over the past few years trying to achieve the necessary standardized test score to get into Michigan. The 2005 Army All-American recently got news that all of his hard work has gotten him a little closer to his goal.

The persistence Marques Slocum has shown while trying to attain a qualifying test score is a testament to the sheer will and determination he has to become a Michigan Wolverine. After weathering through multiple tests, a semester at prep school, and countless hours of tutoring… he made one final attempt at getting qualified for the fall on June 3rd. After it was over he was confident he had achieved the necessary score, but it was boosted even more when he received the results the test he took the month previous. He had increased his point total by 30, leaving him just 60 points short of qualifying.

"I'm calling in for the results, but I'm not sure when they'll be up," said Slocum regarding his most recent test. "I feel real good about it. I think I passed it."

Should Slocum fall short on his final try, he informed GoBlueWolverine in an interview earlier this month that he would probably attend prep school for another semester while he continued his efforts to get the necessary points to qualify. Premium members can view that story here.

GoBlueWolverine will have more on Slocum in the coming weeks.
