Georgia Tech leading rusher Marcus Marshall to transfer

Georgia Tech running back Marcus Marshall, who has led the Yellow Jackets in rushing in each of the last two seasons, has announced his intentions to transfer from the program.

Marshall, the younger brother of former Georgia Bulldogs and current Washington Redskins running back Keith Marshall, announced his decision on Twitter.

“Just want to sincerely thank my teammates, Coach Johnson and the coaching staff, and everyone else affiliated with GT for the opportunity to represent GT and for their support over the last two years,” Marshall wrote.

I have decided to move on from the GT football team and will be transferring in January to continue my academic and football career.”

During his two years in Atlanta, the sophomore running back rushed for 1,278 yards and eight touchdowns.

If Marshall chooses to transfer to another FBS school, he will be forced to sit for an entire season to satisfy NCAA rules. If he moves to the FCS, Marshall would be eligible to play immediately.
