Top TE in Texas?

The tight end position may be one of the toughest spots to fill in the recruiting class of 2008. Lancaster High School is home to one of the best. David Marshall has already developed the size and skill to be a valuable piece in next years' recruiting class.

David Marshall starts at both tight end and defensive end for the Lancaster Tigers. Head Coach Andrew Jackson raved about his ability on both sides of the ball.

"He blocks pretty well. We are going to try and get the ball to him more next year," Jackson said. "When he plays with a hot motor, he plays pretty good (on defense)."

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound Marshall is drawing interest from several programs in and around the Texas area.

"A lot of schools are coming in and looking at our juniors. I haven't talked to Bruce Chambers lately. He hasn't really said anything about him (Marshall). He knows about him, and he said that he was going to come by to look at our juniors some time," Jackson said.

It is still up in the air as to what position Marshall will play on the next level. He made a lot of plays this year on the defensive side of the ball but might prove to be a more valuable weapon on offense in the future.

"It is hard to say. I think if you ask him, he would prefer to play offense. It just depends on how he plays next year," Jackson said. "He plays both ways for us."
