Pitt Latest Team To Offer Kent State Transfer Offensive Tackle Marcellus Marshall

Published

on

The Pitt offensive line will have a dramatic new look in 2023.

With Carter Warren, Marcus Minor, Owen Drexel and Gabe Houy all graduating and with the uncertain future of Jake Kradel, Pitt could potentially lose five starters.

The silver lining for Dave Borbely is that due to injuries, 2022 backups such as Branson Taylor, Matt Goncalves, Ryan Jacoby, Blake Zubovic and Terrence Moore all were able to get a number of reps with the first team offense, so they do have game experience.

However, with those players having the real opportunity to be elevated to starters status, veteran depth is needed to replace them or to possibly earn a role as a starter.

Wednesday night, Borbely and Pitt extended an offer to a player that would no doubt challenge for a starting role.

6’6″, 330-pound offensive tackle Marcellus Marshall received an offer from Pitt.

Since transferring from Kent State, Marshall is receiving instant interest in the portal, with offers from Colorado and Minnesota.

Marshall was named first-team All-MAC last season despite being a true freshman. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Real question are we the Pirates or Altoona Curve to Notre Dame, UGA, USC, other Blue Bloods as the G5/FCS/D2 is to us. Getting the uppers’ 2 deep Junior and Seniors ain’t a bad approach either. Add in some stellar G5 freshmen/sophomore standouts and that is a recruiting feeder model in the TP.

With “instant interest” from Colorado, it looks like Duzz will be battling Prime Time for this one. Will be interesting to see how that goes.

I’m still waiting for Prime Time to tackle someone. He’s amazing. An HOF player without making any tackles. 🙂

Yeah, so many retired players dealing with CTE and crippling injuries from the beatings they took, yet Sanders, who avoided contact like I avoid the dentist, is concerned one of the games greats. Not a fan of the guy.

Considering his size and on-field success, I’m surprised that Marshall doesn’t have more offers.

Marshall is from Morgantown. So if Marshall doesn’t get an offer from WVU, would the opportunity to play WVU 3 times motivate him to play at Pitt?

Marshall would have a decent to good chance of starting next season and would likely start in 2024 and 2025, though it’s possible that he or Ryan Baer may eventually need to move to guard.

He’ll end up in WVa, Pennsylvania has too high % gas taxation on Marcellus.
