Jalin Marshall is a Buckeye!

Written January 30th, 2012 by Joe Laing

The top player in Ohio is a Buckeye.

Ohio athlete and offensive star Jalin Marshall has committed to Ohio State, becoming the second commitment in the 2013 class.

I know we get excited about each and every recruit that we sign, but this one is a huge.

In addition to Cameron Burrows, the Buckeyes have now locked up the top two players in Ohio for the 2013 class. It is hard to imagine a better start than that.

Marshall and Burrows will be the cornerstones of the class and will help recruit other big time players to Columbus over the next year.

For obvious reasons, Coach Meyer has been after him from day one after taking the job.

At 6’0” 200 lbs., Jalin ran a 4.42 40 yard dash last year at the Ohio State summer camp. With that speed, combined with his superior vision, agility and elusiveness in the open field, it is easy to see why Meyer has been targeting such an amazing talent for his offense.

Jalin is the type of player that the defense will need to key on at all times. He could lineup at QB, RB, WR, or KR/PR and take the ball to the house from anywhere on the field.

Despite his early commitment, I think Marshall is a top 10 player in the country.  He could pick any school and they would bring him in with open arms.

Any school would love to have Marshall, but he has decided to be a Buckeye.

Once again, it can’t be overstated what a great start this is for the 2013 class.

Welcome to the Buckeye Family, Jalin!

    Ok, I like highlight videos and everything, but the “special effects” on this one drives me bananas. :)

    Welcome, Jalin!!!

    Yeah, the “special effects” were pretty strange. Especially one of the long TD plays where there appeared to be smoke (contrails?) coming from Jalins, um, posterior.

    They need to rethink the S.E. thing.

    Speaking of ‘SICK’ and completely OT; I see where the Paterno family plans to sell DVD’s of JoPa’s funeral and donate proceeds to charity. No mention of % of proceeds.

    These are some sick mofo’s.
