While there are several Texas prospects to watch out for in the 2008 class, tight end David Marshall from Lancaster, Texas may be one of the biggest early sleepers. At 6-foot-3, 215 pounds already, the talented tight end/defensive end, is racking up stats and helping his team to a 6-1 record so far this season.
Marshall, who's getting stacks of mail from schools such as Purdue, Indiana, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Kansas State, and Iowa, is taking things slow right now. The first scholarship offer has yet to come, but Marshall says that one school in particular is really sending a lot of mail his way.
"Oklahoma State sends me stuff just about every other day," Marshall said. "They're sending the most."
Marshall says that he is also very interested in Oklahoma. With his teammate Anthony Morgan, currently a Baylor commit, he took a visit to Norman this past summer.
"I really liked the atmosphere up there," Marshall said about OU. "That's really the only one I've been on though. I haven't set anything else up."
Marshall says that he is planning on going to the Texas A&M-Baylor game this upcoming weekend and possibly a few more before the season comes to a close.
Really the only question is which position schools will recruit him at between tight end and defensive end.
"It depends on where I go college-wise," Marshall said. "I'm playing both ways here at Lancaster and I'm pretty good at both positions. Most of my stats come on defense, but it's up in the air right now."
Marshall started as a sophomore for Lancaster.
