Class Of 2016 Athlete Adding Early Offers

Leeds High School athlete Tadarryl Marshall was impressive at Auburn's QB Camp and already has several early offers.

Leeds, Ala.--An athletic quarterback prospect who could play a number of different positions on the next level, speedy Tadarryl Marshall was one of the top players at Auburn's Quarterback Camp this week.

A 6-0, 172-pounder with a strong arm and good touch, Marshall said he enjoyed getting to work with quarterback coach and offensive coordinator, Rhett Lashlee, and the rest of the staff in Auburn.

"It was fun," he said. "I had a lot of fun out there, especially with the competition. I learned a lot of things. I can't wait to come back next year.

"It was just a blessing," he added of the working with Lashlee and company. "My coach (Keith Etheridge) sent me down there and I just had fun."

Already very familiar with Auburn, having former Leeds standout Javiie Mitchell on campus and playing for the Tigers, Marshall said he likes everything about the program after getting a closer look at things on his trip.

"It's a blessing," he said of visiting Auburn. "Everybody I have talked to is saying they wished they had the opportunities I have. I love it."

Already with offers from Cincinnati, Navy South Alabama, Jacksonville State, Alabama State, Georgia Southern and Samford, Marshall said most schools are recruiting him as an athlete. He said that if he doesn't play quarterback he expects to get a chance to play either defensive back or wide receiver.

As a sophomore Marshall threw for 1,106 yards and 11 touchdowns in an offense that was very run heavy. He added 904 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. In the state title game against Madison Academy he completed 11-23 passes for 147 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
