Every Sunday, SEC Country will unveil its offensive and defensive recruits of the week based on their weekend performance. In order to qualify, recruits must have at least two SEC offers. This week’s SEC Country Defensive Recruit of the Week honors goes to David Marshall, a defensive end from Upson-Lee (Ga.).
SEC Country’s Defensive Recruit of the Week: David Marshall
Three-star defensive end David Marshall gets the nod as SEC Country’s Defensive Recruit of the Week for his stellar performance against Howard High School (Ga.). Marshall, a former Auburn commit, got after the quarterback with ease on Friday, which is evident by his statistics.
- 10 tackles
- Three tackles for loss
- Four sacks
It appears that it’s a two-way battle between Auburn and Ole Miss for Marshall. The 6-foot-2, 256-pound senior named the Rebels his leader in September, but it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see this one come down to the wire.
