"At this point I'm hearing from Middle Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, Richmond and Ball State," Marshall tells BRZ. "I'm probably hearing from Ball State a little more than the rest."

Although his 5-8, 170 lb. frame might be considered undersized for a prototypical WR prospect, the Powder Springs native has given teams plenty of reasons to give him an extended look. During the 2010 season, he led his Hawks squad in receptions and yards (25 and 461, respectively) and tallied an impressive 18 yards per catch. He also hauled in two TD receptions and added another score on the ground in his lone rush of the year.

"The best part of my game is definitely my quickness of the line. A lot of people aren't able to jam me all that well," Marshall says, adding that he's hoping to improve his route running abilities during the Spring.

While he has yet to receive his first scholarship offer, Marshall has gotten a start on the recruiting game. He's already taken in several visits and is planning a Summer full of camps and showcases.

"I went to Vanderbilt's Spring game this past weekend," he says, reporting that he was impressed with the campus as a whole. "For the Summer, I was invited to the Ultimate 100 National Underclassmen Combine and Badger Sports 7-on-7. I also have the Middle Tennessee camp in May and I'll be going to Vanderbilt and Duke camps in June."

As he goes through the process, Marshall will be actively looking for schools that fit what he's looking for. While he doesn't seem too picky about what sort of program he winds up in, he is adamant about one particular aspect of his future school, whoever that might be.

"Location," he laughs. "I don't want to move too far away from home."

Stay tuned to BRZ for more on Jordan as the Summer progresses.
