Auburn commit will consider recent UGA offer
David Marshall’s in-home visit from UGA coach Glenn Schumann last Friday ended with an offer, and the Auburn commit is taking it under serious advisement.
The three-star defensive lineman from Thomaston, Ga., told SEC Country on Tuesday that it’s one he’s been waiting on for some time. And despite his verbal commitment to the Tigers, he acknowledged the Bulldogs have a good chance of landing his signature.
“I feel good about it,” Marshall said of the offer. “I’ve been waiting on the offer and to get a chance to look at the campus again, and get to know what Georgia is all about. It’s in my home state.”
Marshall, who re-committed to Auburn in October, was once recruited by Kirby Smart during his time at Alabama. The relationship appears to have carried over. Marshall communicated with the former Crimson Tide defensive chief days after his introductory press conference at UGA.
“He told me he’s wanted me to play for him since my sophomore year when I visited Alabama,” Marshall said of the conversation.
But is Georgia too late to the table just weeks ahead of National Signing Day? Not entirely, according to Marshall. He’s already decided to take an official visit to Athens come Jan. 23, and he conceded to SEC Country he will reevaluate his recruitment afterwards.
For the time being, however, he remains committed to Auburn.
