Marshall described his return visit to Georgia Tech as fun. “I got to see the team play, met some recruits, and talked to the coaches.” Marshall focused on how quarterback Justin Thomas ran the team in Tech’s spring game.

Catching up on what he’s been doing was the main topic of discussion with the coaches. TaDarryl met with Coach Paul Johnson, Coach Mike Pelton, and Coach Bryan Cook. “They made me feel like I was a big part of their future plans at quarterback.” Marshall liked being able to talk to them and not have any pressure put on him.

Georgia Tech is one of the schools that is still high on Marshall’s list. “I’ve always loved what Georgia Tech represents and how the coaching staff has made me feel when I’m there.”

Coach Johnson likes what Marshall could bring to the team at the quarterback position. Tech feels Marshall could step in for Justin Thomas and their offense wouldn’t miss a beat.

Marshall started his career as a receiver and is now playing quarterback. “I like all the positions I’m being recruited to play but right now I like wide receiver the best.” TaDarryl still feels he could excel at quarterback in Tech’s offense.

vTroy and Southern Miss are other schools that like Marshall at quarterback. Tennessee likes TaDarryl at receiver or safety and Auburn likes him at cornerback. “I’m being recruited all over the field by a lot of teams."

It isn’t easy for Marshall to pinpoint which schools are recruiting him the hardest. Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Cincinnati, Louisville, Alabama, and Auburn are some of those schools. “Recently both Notre Dame and North Carolina have really stepped up their recruitment of me."

Even though TaDarryl told us that he doesn’t have a true top five at this point, he does know that he will make a decision by the start of his spring practice.
