Maryland QB will attend junior day

Brendan Marshall has received a couple of early verbal offers and the 6-foot-5, 210-pound quarterback is a prototypical signal caller that has big upside at the next level.

Virginia and Cal are the two schools that have verbally offered the Good Counsel (Md.) quarterback and plenty of other schools will be evaluating him going forward. If Marshall chooses to tackle a lot of camps this summer that offer list could grow exponentially.

Boston College hasn't offered yet but the Eagles have made it clear to Marshall that they are very interested.

"I'm going there at the end of the month," Marshall told EagleAction.com over the weekend.

"They sent me something and I'm going to fly out there and go see the campus. They've been sending me e-mails and messages and stuff for the past few months. I've had some contact with them but I haven't talked to them face to face yet, so I'll get to do that at the junior day."

Marshall said he hasn't heard a lot about the Eagles but did say he's aware of the school's academic reputation and knows the school has had some success on the field.

"That's really what I'm looking for," he added.

Rutgers, Wake Forest and Maryland are three other schools that have been recruiting Marshall, but offers haven't come from those schools yet.

This season Marshall threw about a dozen touchdown passes. He thinks he could fit in a variety of offensive schemes.

"I could see myself running the pro-style (offense) or the spread," he said. "It's really either/or. This offseason I'm working on getting bigger and faster so I'll fit into more offenses."
