Marshall Back... Better than Ever?

ATHENS - Tailback Keith Marshall appears in better shape as he enters his fourth season at Georgia.

Keith Marshall took a redshirt after sustaining an ankle and knee injury in the third game of last season.

Coach Mark Richt said Marshall, still listed at 5-foot-11 and 215 pounds on the roster like he was in bowl practices, has dropped weight.

“I think he looks good,” Richt said after Georgia’s first spring practice Tuesday. “He needs to get into the right kind of playing shape like everybody else. …He doesn’t look really as top heavy as he did when he could really only work the upper body. He looks like he’s getting where he needs to be. I’m not sure he’s down where he’s going to be, but he’s working his way in that direction.”

Marshall rushed for 759 of his 1,029 career rushing yards in his freshman season in 2012. He tore an ACL that cut short his 2013 season.

“Man, he’s just back,” starting tailback Nick Chubb said. “Keith Marshall’s back. I’m excited about that. I look forward to Keith having a big year.”

“He’s another back we’ve got to compete against,” sophomore Sony Michel said. “He’s moving fast. He’s moving good.”
