Alexander Marshall said UGA assistant coach John Lilly couldn’t contain his excitement after watching the 6-foot-7 tight end’s tape.
Marshall, a 3-star prospect from Andover, Mass., will attend UGA’s Dawg Night camp on Saturday.
“Coach Lilly told me he can’t wait until I get down (to Athens),” Marshall told the AJC. “He said ‘you are going to fall in love with this place.’”
The 2017 prospect has 10 offers so far, but he doesn’t have one from UGA. Despite not having an offer, Marshall said he considers UGA one of his top schools that he is interested in.
If he does get an offer this weekend, the Bulldogs may have their second commit in next year’s recruiting class.
“I’d want to talk it over with my family,” he said. “But if I think that’s the best choice at the time, then who knows, maybe I will commit on the spot.”
The 230-pounder said coach Lilly told him that he is one of his top guys for next year’s class and is looking forward to introducing him to the coaching staff. So what did Marshall tell Lilly?
“I told him that I’m not that guy you have to take out on third downs. I can catch passes and block. I’m a powerhouse like Rob Gronkowski.”
