 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Marshall's departure, on the surface, was indeed a surprising development, news that came less than two weeks after he gave a speech in a players-only meeting to bring the team together before its 27-24 win at Arkansas. However, it's a decision that was brewing for about a week, multiple sources told The Advocate. Texas A&M was going to be Marshall's final game, and even Friday's news that the Alabama game had been rescheduled didn't change his mind. Orgeron figured this was "strictly a business decision" for Marshall, who is expected to be selected in the early rounds of the NFL draft, and the millions of dollars he'll make as a professional will fulfill the long-held dream he wrote about in a Sunday social media post that said retiring his parents has been his "#1 mission."

"I know he's going to have a great career in the NFL, and he's always going to be a great Tiger," Orgeron said. "He did a lot of things for us… He just thought this was the time to opt out. So, we're going to respect his decision and wish him the best." Orgeron said he respected that Marshall came and spoke to him in person. They had a close relationship. Orgeron recruited Marshall. He played with Marshall's great-uncle, the late Joe Delaney, at Northwestern State. When Myles Brennan was first injured, Marshall met with Orgeron in his office to talk about who the next quarterback would be. "So, it was a little different between a player and a coach with me and him," Orgeron said. "It was almost like family. So, he came and talked to me like a man. He explained his decision. I respected his decision." - Baton Rouge Advocate
