Bears take lead for Marshall

A third scholarship offer has come for Mesquite, Texas defensive end D.J. Marshall and the latest offer has also changed the top school for the rising defender.
Marshall, the 6-foot-4, 230-pounder, had
added two early offers from Iowa State and Minnesota. After attending a Baylor camp this past weekend, he has added another offer from his second Big 12 school. That new offer changed up his favorites as well.
"Baylor has offered now," Marshall said. "They're probably my No. 1 school right now. I really loved the whole environment there and all the coaches and players. You can get a real good education there and they're not too far from home. That way, a lot of people can come see me play like family and friends. The coaches, they've been on me the longest really.
"They just wanted to see me as a staff before offering."
Other schools that have shown interest and talked about the possibility of offering include Central Florida, LSU, Oklahoma State, and UCLA. Marshall says he just recently sent his highlight tape to those schools and is awaiting word on an offer from them.
While the schools that have offered like Marshall as a defensive end, Oklahoma and UCLA had previously expressed interest for the North Texas prospect at tight end.
"I like both positions really," Marshall said. "I don't know which one I'd rather play."
Up next, Marshall could be stopping at LSU and TCU for camps. He also may take an unofficial visit to Texas A&M next month as well.
Marshall, the nation's No. 40 overall strongside defensive end prospect, says that he will most likely decide after his senior season.
