The Sports Kings: UGA Signs The Nation’s #1 RB

The nation’s number one high school prospect at running back Keith Marshall, North Carolina’s Gatorade Player of the Year and Under Armour All-American committed to Georgia today.

According to Marshall, Georgia was always the leader over his other finalists: Clemson, Florida, South Carolina, and Notre Dame.

So what does this mean for the SEC Freshman of the Year Isaiah Crowell?

No more tapping out!

If Crowell continues to suffer from lingering injuries and checking himself out of the game every couple of plays it will more than likely mean significant playing time for the incoming freshman.

Marshallis the all-time leading rusher and scorer at Millbrook High School where he rushed for 4,550 yards and 52 touchdowns during his high school career.

This season he rushed from nearly 2,000 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Marshall’s announcement:

    Another parent turning over their child to a white university for them to make million for this school all under the misguided notion of this child making it to the NFL and buying this parent that big mansion and lexus…We’re still selling our children to these sports plantations under the misguided notion of them receiving an education, when we’re feeding these children to make money for these schools and nothing more

      “What separates him from the typical high school player or any athlete is his desire to be the best in all aspects of life, not just on the field but in the classroom as well,” Millbrook coach Clarence Inscore said…”Whether it be with football or not, Keith Marshall has a bright future.”

      In truth, Marshall didn’t have much choice about his academic achievements, that is, if he wanted to play football. His mother saw to that.

      “That’s really — in our household — Plan A,” Denice Marshall said of academics. “They get to do other things because they achieve in the classroom. It’s really great that he’s done as much work in the classroom as he’s done on the field so that he can achieve those standards. That’s really phenomenal to see. I’m extremely proud. My husband is extremely proud.”

      On the field, Keith Marshall, who’s No. 6 in the ESPNU 150, isn’t too shabby either. The five-star prospect is rated the top-tailback in the nation, the top prospect in North Carolina and has more scholarship offers than he can recall. He’s also Millbrook’s all-time leading rusher and has over 650 yards this season despite tendinitis in his knees from going straight to football from track and facing defenses intent on stopping him.”

      Based on the above, it seems that your assumptions and comments were based on something other than the facts.
