Five-star wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. was presented with an Under Armour All America jersey on Tuesday along with teammate and TCU commitment Justin Rogers, in a ceremony at Parkway High (Bossier City, La.).
For the nation’s No. 9 prospect in the Class of 2018, Tuesday’s ceremony is a chance to follow in the footsteps of great players.
“This means a lot,” said Marshall. “Growing up, I followed the game since I was a kid watching all the great players like Leonard Fournette. This is a dream come true to be in the same conversation.”
With the 6-foot-3, 193-pound playmaker on the mend following a broken fibula that required surgery, recruiting has taken center stage with a decision set for December 22. That means five of Marshall’s finalists -- LSU, TCU, Alabama, Florida State, Texas and Texas A&M will be receiving official visits in the coming weeks.
“I’ll be releasing my official visit dates soon, probably in the next week. I’m taking all five of my official visits.”
Four questions with Terrace Marshall Jr.:
What player are you looking forward to competing with or against in the Under Armour All-America Game?
I don’t have any one player. I’m just going to enjoy my time, compete and use the time to get ready for college.
If you could start a team with any player in your class, who would it be and why?
That is a hard decision right there. I think I would like to team up with Amon-Ra St. Brown. We got close at The Opening, and I feel like we have a great relationship and would be good teammates.
What is your earliest football memory?
When I was little, six years old, I scored five touchdowns in a game against Justin Rogers’ team. It was flag football. He beat me. He scored six TD’s and I had 5.
What number do your wear, and why?
I wear 88. I like Dez Bryant, but the main reason is that’s the number they gave me when I was a sophomore because seniors got first pick. I’m going to stick with it in college.
