Dinwiddie DL Scores First Official Offer

Dinwiddie (VA) defensive lineman Corey Marshall received verbal offers from the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech in June…on the same day, actually. Yesterday, he received an official offer from Tech, and he expects Virginia to come through shortly. The 6-1, 255-pound prospect plans to dive right into the recruiting process this fall.

“I’m being methodical right now. I’m going to take visits to schools. I’m going to look at campuses and get more in tune with coaches,” said Marshall, who also has an offer from JMU and serious interest from Maryland. “I’m going to wait until my senior year to decide, so I can cipher through all of my options. I’m going to take as much time as possible and do my due diligence. Wherever I go is a place I’m going to be for four or five years.”

Marshall attended Virginia’s home contest versus East Carolina last season. He called it a “good experience,” one he made with his family. Marshall mentioned four possible ACC visits he and his family may make this fall.

“I don’t have any dates down, but I’m looking at going to Maryland, UVa, Virginia Tech, and maybe a Duke game because they want me to come,” said Marshall, who grew up a Virginia Tech fan. “I’m going to be proactive, seeing players and fields and everything.”
