Marsalis Teague picked up his eleventh offer last week from Michigan. Teague said of his conversation with Coach Rich Rodriguez, “It went real well.”

Teague said, “He said he was very impressed with the film and he loved what he saw. He said that they are trying to make the transition from the West Virginia spread and move that to Michigan. He told his staff that we need to offer some of the best skill guys that they can find in the country, and some of the fastest guys with good ball skills. Then he told me that I fit that mold perfectly.”

As for which position Teague is being recruited to play he said, “He actually told me the offensive coordinator and defensive coordinators both approve me to play on their side of the ball. He told me it would be up to my choosing to play a slot receiver, corner, or a safety.”

This leads you to ask, could he be the next Charles Woodson? Teague explained, “He did tell me if the situation occurred and I wanted to learn both sides of the ball that I could. He said that wouldn’t be a problem at all playing both sides of the ball and that it would all be up to my choosing.” He added, “The fact of playing both sides of the ball intrigues me. Being a quarterback I’m used to having the ball in my hands and trying to make plays.”

The conversation was very positive Teague commented, “From the talk I had with Coach Rodriguez I was very impressed. I want to get up there and see them, but I’m going to have to wait until this fall.”

For prospects like Teague the more offers the more likely the recruiting process will last. He said of his offers, “It’s slowed everything down because I said I wanted to have everything done by the end of the summer.”

He explained, “As far as taking the lead not really, but I would say not in particular order Miami, Tennessee, Clemson, Ole Miss, Michigan, Vanderbilt, and North Carolina.” Teague went on to say, “I still try to stay open to everybody, but those are the ones I talk to a lot and try to build relationships with.”

“The University of Georgia coach called and invited me down to their camp on July 18th. He told me he watched my film and he is excited about trying to get me down there. He wants me to go down to the camp, so I’m going to go down there.” explained Teague.
