David Marshall Stands Out at Combine

There were a number of sleeper prospects who attended the Scout.com Combine in Texas this weekend at the Cowboys training facility at Valley Ranch. Defensive End David Marshall proved that he had what it takes to succeed on the next level.

David Marshall, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound defensive end from Mesquite High in Texas has been flying low on the recruiting radar due to the fact that he recently transferred in to Mesquite, but he clearly has what it takes to succeed on the next level.

At the combine he ran a 4.75 forty yard dash, 4.64 shuttle, and added a very strong 36.3 in the vertical jump to push his name to \wards the top of the list of overall testing performances.

"It was real good," Marshall explained of the combine experience. "It gave me the chance to meet all of the other top recruits in the area. It was nice to compete and find out that I can compete with those type of players."

"I think that I liked the one-on-one part of the combine the best. We had the time to work and find out how good all of the other players were."

Marshall may not be one of the most talked about names in the "Lone Star State," but there are many top programs keeping a watchful eye on his progression.

"I am hearing a lot from Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Minnesota," Marshall reported. "Minnesota has really been showing me a lot of interest lately. I think that they could offer. I am also receiving interest from LSU, Notre Dame, Duke and Uconn"
