2018 Bossier City (La.) Parkway wide receiver Terrace Marshall was in Orlando, Fla. for the 2017 Future 50 Camp presented by Under Armour on Saturday and went against some of the best defensive backs in the country out there. The likely future All-American said some familiar names that were good to battle against.
"Working hard, you get the talent to come out here and go against the best of the best. It's a blessing," the No. 1 wide receiver in Louisiana said. "I did alright. I could have done better. I'm not going to say someone gave me trouble, but definitely Kelvin Joseph, Al Blades and Asante Samuel were good competition."
The best part about the camp for Marshall?
"Going to go against Al Blades II," Marshall joked with a smiling Blades right behind him.
The in-state Tigers continue to press Marshall, who will head to Baton Rouge for a Junior Day this spring. Wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig continues to build a relationship with 6-4 receiver.
"I'm hearing good things from LSU. They're going to come out as one of the top schools, but everybody has a chance right now," the four-star receiver said. "Coach Craig, me and coach Craig got a great relationship. I relate to him very well. I like him."
As far as talking with new offensive coordinator Matt Canada, that hasn't happened yet, but it's something that Marshall knows will happen soon. He's planning on doing some research on LSU's new playcaller soon.
"I haven't really discovered him yet. I didn't know anything about him, but I'm going to check him out for sure," Marshall said. http://www.scout.com/college/lsu/story/1741549-stevens-speak-on-against-...
Texas A&M, Arkansas and Alabama continue to push Marshall as well.
"I like how they all spread the ball around," Marshall said of the trio of SEC West rivals to LSU.
After his junior season, the No. 14 overall player in 2018 said that he's getting better all around and will continue to work on his craft.
"I feel like I'm better coming out of my breaks. Hands get better everyday. I work everyday so just everything," Marshall said.
SCOUT EVALUATION OF MARSHALL:
"If Marshall gets behind the defensive back in coverage, it is over. He is big, but surprisingly quick off the line of scrimmage and he shows great explosion. He simply runs past cornerbacks and catches the deep ball extremely well. He covers a lot of ground in a hurry. With his size combined with his speed and hands, he is an elite talent. He can still improve his route tree and his overall route running, but he has the ability to be a true No. 1 wideout on the next level."
