Regarded as one of the top 2008 tight end prospects in the area, Lancaster, Texas tight end David Marshall has made a switch in which high school he calls home.
Marshall, a 6-foot-3, 215-pounder has transferred from Lancaster to Mesquite High School where he'll join junior signal caller Kelly Page and several other top prospects at the Metroplex school.
"My dad wanted us to make a move and I think it will be nice to play in the 5A district," Marshall said. "There were some things I wasn't happy with at the other school."

Marshall says the transition has been an easy one. He's know players like Page from playing football as a kid.
"My dad coached our little league team and we played against Kelly's team back then," Marshall said. "I've known some of the other players there from that time too. It was great talking with the new coaches as well.
"They say I'm going to play tight end and defensive end. I may be more of an outside linebacker type defensive end though where I can stand up."
Marshall's recruiting interest isn't cooling off one bit. His first offer has yet to come, but Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Illinois, Purdue, LSU, and several others are sending loads of mail.
"Oklahoma State is probably sending the most," Marshall said.
