Game Analysis

Terrace Marshall, 2018 WR, Bossier City (La.) Parkway

  • Game: Parkway 69, Lufkin (Texas) 54 -- Battle On The Border at Independence Stadium in Shreveport, La. (Sept. 10, 2016)
  • Size: 6-4, 190
  • Recruiting info: Marshall is without a doubt one of the top receiver prospects in the country's 2018 class. Scout ranks him No. 14 overall regardless of position and as the No. 2 wideout in the country for the junior class. He's also Scout's No. 1 player in the state of Louisiana for 2018. Marshall has garnered more than 20 offers, including almost all of which are from Power Five conference programs. Marshall's offers include AlabamaLSUMississippi StateOklahomaTCUTexas A&M, Arkansas, and Baylor, among others. Miami, Texas A&M, and UCLA offered Marshall in June, while his most recent offer came in July from Auburn. Marshall attended Texas A&M's Sept. 3 season-opening overtime win against UCLA.

Game analysis: Marshall caught six passes for 233 yards and four touchdowns -- and had another TD negated by penalty -- in Saturday's 69-54 shootout win against Lufkin, a traditionally talent-laden East Texas program. Marshall was the best big-play threat in a game full of big plays as he averaged 38.3 yards per reception. Parkway amassed a jaw-dropping 812 yards of offense, while Lufkin gained more than 600.

At 6-foot-4, 190 pounds, Marshall is a great vertical threat because he combines an elite frame with better-than-expected top-end speed. In fact, three of his touchdowns saw him outrun smaller defensive backs to the end zone. His most impressive play came on a well-executed tunnel screen that he plucked mid-stride at the line of scrimmage and scored form 73 yards, showing his open-field running ability as he blew past a safety with an angle on him down the sideline. 

Marshall did everything with his six catches, from over-the-top, vertical routes to the aforementioned catch-and-run excellence. A receiver of his size with his ability to make plays after the catch is rare. It was obvious to me why he's garnered so many P5 offers this early in his recruitment.
