Following his official visit to Georgia over the weekend, David Marshall received two phone calls: one from Auburn coach Gus Malzahn and another from defensive line coach Rodney Garner.
The three-star defensive end said both appeared “worried,” as Marshall, whose commitment to the Tigers has become murky in recent weeks, has shown a growing interest in the Bulldogs under Kirby Smart.
“They’re coming to see me in the morning,” said Marshall, who intends on returning to Athens next week. As a result, he will no longer visit Ole Miss on Jan. 29 as originally planned.
“I probably will be going back next weekend with Tyler Clark to hang out with the players and to get to know the new staff and coaches,” Marshall told SEC Country’s Jeff Sentell.
The 6-foot-2, 272-pound standout from Upson-Lee High School said that while he has a better overall relationship with the Tigers staff, he’s developed a better relationship with Smart.
“Auburn is still standing out because of the relationship I have with the coaches,” Marshall said. “But I have a better relationship with coach Kirby (Smart) than I do with any coaches that are recruiting me.”
