Junior college quarterback prospect Nick Marshall might be committed to Auburn, although the school isn't guaranteed to accept him.
Marshall tweeted his college choice early Monday, but Auburn isn't sure yet whether they'll take him. They'll look at his college transcripts and could add Marshall to their class in the next few days, possibly as early as Wednesday.
Marshall had been a cornerback at Georgia, but was dismissed from the school last year for an incident reportedly involving stealing. He'd appeared in 13 games in 2011, mainly on special teams. He went to Garden City Community College, where he threw for 18 touchdowns and ran for 18 more, making him a hot commodity at quarterback. He was considering Texas, but the Longhorns backed away from Marshall once it became clear Case McCoy would be allowed to return to the school.
Marshall was also considering Indiana, but chose Auburn based on his relationship with Gus Malzahn, who recruited him when he was in charge at Arkansas State. As Auburn blog College and Magnolia writes, Marshall could be used at quarterback, where they're relatively light, but his previous SEC experience would also make him a quality cornerback.
@sbnrecruiting Suspect he will get a look at QB, especially with some depth concerns there. But, would also be an asset as a rangy DB.— College and Magnolia (@CollegeAndMag) January 14, 2013
