Baylor Offers JUCO CB-turned-QB Nick Marshall

New, comments

A new name on the recruiting front for Art Briles and company is Garden City (Kansas) CC QB Nick Marshall.

Apparently somewhat concerned with our QB situation for next year, Art Briles and the Baylor staff continued their recent recruiting trend of evaluating and offering JUCO players with a QB, a position previously thought filled in this class.

The QB at issue here is Nick Marshall, who you can see from the tweet above was a cornerback at Georgia in another life. Marshall has recruiting profiles at Scout (listed as a 4* CB), Rivals (from his HS days), and 247Sports, where is he listed as the 101st-ranked player in this JUCO class and the 3rd-best dual-threat QB.

Marshall also has numerous HUDL highlight videos that are worth a look when you get a chance. From what I can tell, Marshall has outstanding skills with the ball in his hands but needs significant work as a QB. It's not clear at this point whether our staff actually wants Marshall as a QB or if they plan to return him to his former role at CB. Either is possible from what I can see on film, though I'm hardly an expert. I'd appreciate any thoughts people are willing to give after watching his videos.

Marshall is listed at 6-2, 210 with a 4.45, so ... maybe he should be a QB!
