NEW ORLEANS – The 24th-ranked player in the ESPN Junior 300, wide receiver Terrace Marshall, earned a trip to The Opening with his impressive performance at The Opening New Orleans regional camp on Sunday.
With his size and athleticism, it’s easy to see why Marshall is being recruited by just about every major college in the Southeast, but the 6-foot-3, 193-pound athlete from Bossier City, Louisiana, said there is a group of schools that is starting to stand above the rest.
“I don’t have a top five or anything like that right now, but I do have some schools I’m focusing on a little more,” Marshall said. “Texas A&M, LSU, Nebraska, Oregon, TCU, Miami, schools like that. I really like those schools. I feel comfortable with them.”
Miami, Nebraska and Oregon are on Marshall’s list despite the four-star prospect having never visited any of the three schools. That should change over the spring and fall.
“I still have to go visit Miami, I still have to go visit Nebraska and Oregon, but they seem like good schools,” he said. “Texas A&M, Texas, LSU…I visited those and I really liked them. I visited LSU yesterday and really enjoyed it. It felt like home a little bit.”
Marshall, who plans to make his final decision on national signing day next February plans to use all five of his official visits with LSU, Texas A&M, Texas, Oregon and Miami being likely destinations for those visits in the fall.
As for his final decision, the talented pass catcher said there are just a few simple things he is looking for with the school he will eventually choose.
“I want to go to the campus and they really show me good hospitality and make me feel at home and then I want to be able to get on the field and catch the ball,” Marshall said. “That’s about it.”
