ATH Marsalis Teague Profile
Reports have surfaced in recent weeks that Tennessee native Marsalis Teague, a four-star prospect in Scout.com's latest rankings, has been ready to narrow the field, but a new offer on Thursday has slowed the process.
"Yeah I have been trying to narrow the field, but I got a wrench thrown in there today when Florida offered. Right now it has slowed a little," Teague told CUTigers.com.
"It felt good [to get an offer from Florida]. It kind of caught me off guard. My coach had sent them film a while back. Their secondary coach said he just watched my film and said we have to offer."
When asked about his current favorites, Teague responded, "I like Clemson, Miami, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech and Michigan. I am hoping to narrow it down to five from that group. I will hopefully have that done shortly as my season starts."
Some of the official visits should come this fall.
"I am going to try to take my official visits during the season so that I can check out games. I want to see the game atmosphere," said Teague.
The Clemson staff is working hard to earn an official visit and it appears that will happen.
"I get letters in the mail from all of their coaches. They tell me how important I am to their class. They want to get me up for an official visit. I told them that is likely," said Teague.
Some reports had Miami as the leader for the two-way standout, but Teague says there is not leader right now.
"I wouldn't say they are the leader. They did have an advantage because I grew up rooting for Miami, but things could change as I figure out where the best school is for me," said Teague.
The visits have ended as focus turns towards the season.
"We started practice last week. We have our first full week of practice next week. We had two-a-days last week. Things look good. We have a new guy and the young guys are stepping up," said Teague.
Marsalis expects big things from Henry County this fall.
"I predict we will win the state championship and have an undefeated season. I know that is a bold statement, but I believe we have what it takes," said Teague.
