Nearly one year ago the coaching staff offered Warwick Marsh, a 6-foot, 295-pound Defensive Tackle, then the Broncos backed off when it was unclear if the talented DT would have the grades to qualify for FBS.
But, after dismissing Defensive Tackle Dereck Boles from the team, and losing JuCo DT Joshua Fatu to USC on the morning of the 2016 National Letter of Intent Day, Boise State once again finds itself in need of immediate help and depth at the defensive tackle position.
"BSU is very interested in me," he said. "They have asked for my measurements and transcript."
That transcript is the key for Marsh, a native of Panama City, Panama, as the Broncos, Nebraska, plus a number of smaller schools have recently been in contact with him.
Marsh must complete some classes in June to complete requirement for his associate degree. If all goes, he will find himself suited up for fall camp at his next school.
There are no official offers on the table yet for the big lineman. Anything that may come his way is contingent on his grades. Marsh says he has grown from his experience over the last year.
"It's been really tough," he said. "There was a point in time when I thought my football days were over. So that was really hard to deal with. Football is my life.
"Hopefully somebody gives me a chance."
