Nick Marshall would be a great pickup

Nick Marshall would be a great pickup 


Nick Marshall is a four star athlete/qb, he'd be a great pickup for this program because I'm sure he's similar to Tre Roberson in his skill set. I'm really concerned that if we don't actively recruit a dual threat QB in this class, then if Tre goes down again next year, we're screwed. Marshall is a cousin of Antonio Marshall, our starting CB.

If not Nick, then I'd definitely like to see CKW pursue someone that has a skill set similar to Roberson. This isn't a knock on Sudfeld or Coffman, but those guys simply don't bring that dimension to our offense and IU is in a position where the QB needs to be not only a passer but a playmaker with his feet.

Am I the only one who thinks we need to sign a dual threat in this class?

Nick Marshall looks like he would be a great pickup for any program.  For some reason, he doesn't show up on our Scout recruiting page, but both Rivals and ESPN show him as having an Indiana offer:

http://rivals.yahoo.com/indiana/football/recruitin g/player-Nick-Marshall-142185


Both sites are showing him visiting IU this weekend, also. 

Baylor, Kansas State, and Texas Tech, among others, seem to be on him as well.  Texas is taking a look also.

Any idea why he went the JUCO route?

He was at Georgia his frosh year and got into some trouble and was dismissed from the team, forcing him to go juco. I'd love to get him, he was rated as a high four star out of high school. I just hope his trouble days are behind him.

247 Sports graphics are showing IU as the leader (warmer?).  Think they know something?

I for one, don't think you can ever have to many QB's on your roster. And with our offense, having a dual threat QB sure doesn't hurt. After all, this offense was set up with the notion that Tre would be our starting QB. Marshall would be a great pickup.

Wow, it sounds like IU may get Riyad Jones AND Nick Marshall!! These guys are superb athletes that would likely start somewhere on the field from day one. This class could be a loaded class by the time it's all said and done!
