Nick Marshall Chooses To Play Defensive Back

244

For Georgia. FSU wanted the kid at quarterback, but that was going to be extremely tough for Marshall considering he wanted to play hoops as well. Two-sport quarterback is very difficult to do and it often prevents the player from excelling in either (spare us the Chollie Ward, that was a different era of football that required a different time commitment). In any case, Marshall determined the best way for him to play both sports was to assume a position other than QB. UGA had only recently offered Marshall as a DB (as did GTech), having originally wanted him to play QB. To our knowledge, FSU never wanted Marshall at DB, as the 'Noles already have a tremendous crop of DBs.
