Harris County (GA) TaQuon Marshall is a complete athlete as he plays quarterback, defensive back and also returns punts and kickoffs for his high school team. On Saturday at Georgia Tech's Junior Day, this versatile athlete was enjoying his visit to the Flats when a good day ended up even better.
Marshall had an in-depth conversation with Coach Johnson and learned that he could add an option to his list of schools. "He said that he would love for me to come to Georgia Tech and offered me a scholarship. He told me that I am a player that can help at many positions that they would be recruiting me as an athlete."
Taquon also was excited about the idea of getting an offer from a home state school. "I have other offers and I love having them too but it was nice getting an offer from your home state school. I was real excited about getting it."
Being recruited as an athlete is fine with Marshall. I will play any position that will help his team win if I came there. That is the way I feel. Anything to help the team win and get on the field the quickest."
Marshall is happy to add a home state offer to offers from Duke, Cincinnati, and Marshall. But, he's in no hurry to make any decisions. "I am keeping an open mind with my recruiting and keeping all schools equal until I can make enough visits to start naming a top list of schools. I just need to get a feel of the atmosphere of the schools when I am there." Wake Forest is the next and only visit that TaQuon has and he'll be at their Junior Day next weekend.
And today's atmosphere was made a nice impression on TaQuon. "It was great today and it was great last year when I attended a game. I mean the school is close to home, the fans are great, and Georgia Tech is a school that will be up there with the players they have coming in."
