School: Valley Christian High School
Position: Running Back
Status: Signed letter of intent, Oregon 2/1/2012
After signing his letter of intent today, Byron Marshall starts work on becoming the next great Oregon running back.
Marshall lettered as a freshman and made the U.S. Army All-American team as a senior. In his last three years as a prep he scored 51 touchdowns, rushing for 1,035, 1,360 and 914 yards. He missed three games his senior year with an injury, but still averaged a whopping 9.38 yards a carry.
With LaMichael James graduating and Dontae Williams and Lache Seastrunk leaving the program last year, Marshall has the ability and the opportunity to challenge for immediate playing time.
