Spring Grove QB Gets Good News

Nearly every publication across the internet has followed the progress of Spring Grove (Pa.) High School prospect Matt Marshall because his name has been tied to as many as 40 programs across the country. One school is looking to step up and be the gunslinger's first offer.

"Rutgers sounds like they are gonna offer me pretty soon," Matt Marshall said. "They came to school today and they said they were gonna have a staff meeting soon and I was one of the top 2 quarterbacks they were deciding on and that they were planning on offering me."

The Big East program has been surrounding the Spring Grove talent since his sophomore year, where he eclipsed over 1,400 yards and 13 touchdowns. He followed that up with 1,600 yards and 14 touchdowns his junior season.

"There are no other schools right now," Marshall said in response to if any other schools had gotten involved with his recruitment, "Bowling Green, Syracuse, Michigan State, Akron, Maryland and Virginia are showing a lot of interest in me right now."

The gunslinger has already been to Akron, Pittsburgh and Penn State this summer for junior days and they are expected to be in the fray till the end of his recruitment.

"I'm pretty much wide open right now and am interested in any program that steps up," Marshall said. "I've had a bunch of schools stop by and see me, it's just a matter of somebody stepping up and offering."

In addition ot the tremendous passing accomplishments, Marshall also boasted 450 yards rushing and 5 touchdowns, proving his versatility.

"I'm more of a drop back passer, but I can run when I need too," Marshall concluded, "I'd say my accuracy is really good and I'm a smart player. My Dad is our coach, so I've got a lot of good tutoring from him."

Playing under his father, the offensive coordinator at Spring Grove, certainly isn't always easy.

"It's a great opportunity," Marshall said of his father, "I've had the chance to get better and he's been a really big help in getting me where I need to be. It also can be stressful at times and I am well aware of the pressures that come with playing for your father."
