Texas TE looks to play both ways

KELLER, Texas - Tight end David Marshall is trying to get looks on either side of the ball.
Moving from Lancaster High School over to Mesquite after his junior season, the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder is being looked at all over the field. Schools like Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Utah are the schools that Marshall says have been the most frequent in their attention.
They all seem to like him at different positions.
"I can play more than one," Marshall said. "I could line up as a defensive end, linebacker, or a receiver. Then I could also be a hybrid fullback or even a middle linebacker. Minnesota has talked about playing either one (defensive end or tight end) because they're looking for a guy who could do both."
Marshall says he doesn't have any firm unofficial visit plans. He does want to take in the NIKE Combine in Houston later this spring and also wants to get out to Kansas State at some point in the near future as well.
"I'm just going to find out who isn't looking at me and prove myself to get their eye."
Marshall says that he had a solid outing at the combine with 30 bench reps of 185 pounds and a 33-inch vertical leap.
