No Offer Yet For Marshall

Hundreds of recruits will flock to Chapel Hill this summer to attend one of the Tar Heels' many individual camps in hopes to land a UNC scholarship offer. Dekota Marshall, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound athlete from Jacksonville (N.C.) Southwest Onslow, is one such recruit. Last week, Marshall attended North Carolina's three-day camp.

"We did drills," said Marshall. "I really learned a lot from the camp. We did one-on-ones – man-to-man coverage on the receivers and I shutdown all the receivers in man-to-man coverage."

Despite a solid day, Marshall has one major aspect of his game that he needs to improve before the Tar Heels extend an offer.

"The real thing that he [Coach Marvin Sanders] was worried about was my hip movement," said Marshall. "He said a DB is supposed to have real loose hips to make that change. He told me I had to work on that. He said he'd hate to send me away without an offer, but I really need to work on my hip movement. He said they'll be at a game in October."

Although Marshall didn't walk away with an offer, he did leave with a better feel for the campus and coaching staff.

"It was a nice campus and working with the coaches was real fun," said Marshall. "They have some intense practices and intense drills, I've got to get used to stuff like that."

Marshall will attend camps at East Carolina, and Wake Forest in the upcoming weeks.

East Carolina is still the only school to tender Marshall, but he said South Carolina has now jumped into the race and appears close to offering.
