Class of 2013
Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes
6'0", 185lbs/ Wide Receiver
Recruiting: Offers from Army and Idaho.
For many of the Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes prospects, the game against Peninsula was not their best of the year. Wide receiver Marquin Russell struggled and put forth a much better performance the following week against O'Dea. In that game, Russell had five catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns. Unfortunately, the tape below only has plays from the Peninsula game.
Russell is an athlete above all else. He has plenty of room to perfect his game as wide receiver. His route running could improve and he dropped a couple balls that were catchable. Russell's offers are a tribute to his pure speed. He has the size and should develop into a pure wide receiver, but has enough playmaking ability to be used early in his college career at the slot position.
