2013 Irish Target Impressive

2013 Notre Dame target Jalin Marshall experienced the highs and lows of football Saturday night. Irisheyes.com was on hand and has the following report.

There is no mistaking the offensive talents possessed by Middletown (Ohio) quarterback Jalin Marshall.

On Saturday night, Marshall and his teammates looked to advance to next Saturday's Division I, Region Four championship game by knocking off Greater Catholic League power Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller.

Despite Moeller scoring on six of its first nine possessions, Middletown kept pace thanks to Marshall's efforts in their high powered triple-option attack.

The Middies would grind out 419 rushing yards but ultimately came up short, 42-30 on the night. Marshall, however, showed why he's considered by Scout.com to be one of the top talents in the Midwest rushing for 296 yards on 29 carries with two touchdowns.

Projected as a running back or wide receiver, Marshall was sacked twice on the night and threw two costly interceptions that helped Moeller earn the win as the two teams combined for 861 yards of total offense in front of a large crowd.

With the ball in his hand, Marshall can be hard to stop using several moves, spins, and jab steps in making defenders miss. He has the skills Brian Kelly looks for on the offensive side of the ball and is a major target for the Irish in the 2013 class.
