Millbrook running back has his choice of colleges

When Millbrook Keith Marshall touches the football amazing things can happen and college recruiters have taken notice.

Rivals.com, ESPN.com and Scout.com all rank Marshall as the number one running back in the class of 2012.

And when you’re number one, you have options. Marshall can choose practically any college he wants. 

"I want to go where I think I'll fit best, academically and I want to make sure it's a good program as well," Marshall said. 

Marshall ran for more than 1,200 yards as a sophomore at Millbrook, then followed that up with more than 1,500 yards as a junior. 

And his time in the forty-yard dash is roughly the same as his GPA, a 4.25. 

"Academically i'm really strong so I'm not going to have any trouble in the classroom," Marshall said. "And I'm pretty big, a lot of people that have my speed aren't as big as me, I should have a high ceiling." 

Currently, Marshall’s list numbers around 12 schools with Carolina being the only local college on that list. He plans to make a final decision in December. 

But between now and then... He’ll have to deal with one of the side affects of being one of the nation’s most highly-recruited players 

"Sights like Rivals, Scout.com and ESPN they always want to do interviews. I'll get about two phone calls everyday from them, it's kind of annoying," Marshall admitted. 

It’s the price you pay for being number one.

Not sure I'd want him in my program. He obviously has a head the size of Sputnik.

His speed is out there. I wish that WRAL could list some of the other schools that he may be interested in. You only listed UNC.

No doubt whatsoever this kid has talent and could be the real deal. Wish him nothing but the best in college football endeavors. The only bit of free advice I could give him is to try being a little less cocky and a little more humble. Just remember one thing...you're always one bad knee injury from being a superstar to being yesterday's news. So try appreciating those annoying two calls a day while you're still getting them, okay? Good luck!
