At Powder Springs (Ga.) Hillgrove, Jordan Marshall plays receiver.
Navy, however, likes him at another spot.
"They offered me as a running back," said the 5-foot-7, 163-pound Marshall. "I like it. I used to play there in middle school."
To date, Navy is the lone FBS school to offer Marshall, who carries a 3.64 GPA. Georgia State also has pulled the trigger. At this point, Marshall claims no leader, but he certainly is high on the Midshipmen.
"I like Navy," Marshall said. "I like that they have a winning tradition and I like how if I graduate from there, I'd have a job right out of college. This spring, I met with [assistant coach Ashley] Ingram. He was real nice to talk to. We really didn't talk much about football. We talked about life after football.
According to Marshall, he plans to visit Navy this fall.
For the record, he also has praise for Georgia State.
"I like that they're close to home," Marshall said. "It's a new program, and they're starting a new tradition."
Thus far, Marshall has visited a handful of schools, notably Middle Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Ball State and Memphis also are showing interest.
"Ball State is telling me they just want to see a little more film and they'll offer me soon," Marshall said. I'm sending them my spring film. I'm going to send it to them probably within the next week or two."
