Huskers offer DT from Austin

Success of recruiting is not only nailing down your own state or area, but having the ability to go outside your area and nab a prospect or two. More importantly, into areas that are known for producing talent. Nebraska is trying to do that with one of it's latest offers to a defensive tackle from Austin, Texas.

Austin, Texas, or the home to the Texas Longhorns, is rarely an area that schools other than Texas can come in a player out of. Broderick Marshall may be an exception.

While Texas is definitely a top consideration to Marshall, the standout from Austin (Texas) McCallum is getting attention from the hometown Longhorns as well as other schools in and out of Texas.

Per Stacey Dean from, who writes the Texas Hot 100, he visited with Marshall today and reported two offers. "Texas Tech and Nebraska," Marshall said have officially offered.

While Nebraska has ponied up the offer he is favoring Texas Tech at the moment and is claiming the current list of schools as his top five, "Texas Tech, Texas, TCU, Miami, and Nebraska."

One of the recent rumors about Marshall has been that he could be an academic risk. A rumor that was quickly squashed with a 2.2/2.3 GPA and he is currently awaiting his test score.

Marshall is an intriguing prospect with a great mix of height, size and speed at 6-foot-4, 280 pounds and a 5.2/40.

The Big Red Report will be following up with Marshall soon. Stay tuned!
