Former Bossier City High School Star Heading To The NFL
Former Parkway Panther football star Terrace Marshall, Jr has declared for the NFL Draft. The decision will cut short his career with LSU in Baton Rouge.
The decision not only cuts short his career, but his season as well. This makes his final game for LSU their 20-7 loss to Texas A&M this past weekend. The final score wasn't what Marshall would have liked to see on his way out, but his final stat line was pretty solid, with 10 catches for 134 yards and a touchdown. All coming from a mix of backup quarterbacks. With the final catch of his LSU career being at touchdown for the Tigers in the game.
Marshall's talent has never been questioned. He was the 13th overall recruit in the country when coming out of high school in 2018. The 5-star prospect from Parkway was recruited by almost every big-name school in the country, including Alabama, Texas, Miami, Georgia, Oklahoma, Oregon, Florida, UCLA, Florida State, and dozens of other schools. But he picked LSU above all, and that decision paid off.
During the run to the National Championship last season, Marshall was a big contributor to the LSU offense, led by Heisman Trophy winner (and #1 overall NFL Draft Pick) Joe Burrow. His 13 touchdowns last season we pretty impressive, because he missed a month of the season with a broken foot.
A lot of NFL Draft Projections has Marshall as one of the top 5 wide receivers in the 2021 draft class, but that doesn't guarantee him a First Round spot yet. He could go as high as 15th overall according to some, while others think he could slide into the middle of the Second Round.
