Wasn't it just yesterday that we were surprised that Phoenix (Az.) Mountain Pointe safety Israel Marshall had no offers? LINK.
That changed today as WAC power Boise State has become the first program to offer the 6-2 190 pound Marshall.
Mountain Pointe head coach Norris Vaughan called Scout.com to give us the news. "Boise State called and offered Izzy. I think this could be the first of many."
And it wouldn't shock me. Marshall is a long and rangy safety that could possibly bulk up and play outside linebacker. He runs extremely well and is very disruptive in the run game, not afraid to stick his nose in there.
Marshall comments on the offer, "Coach Huff said they were excited to offer me because they think I will be a leader on and off the field and everything they have heard from the staff and the principal is that I am a good kid."
Marshall was a 2nd team all-region pick last year for the 12-1 Mountain Lions. He recorded 53 tackles and 1 sack while helping them reach the 5A1 semi-final.
