TaQuon Marshall (Jr.):
As said for Matthew Jordan, TaQuon Marshall is one of the main candidates for the Yellow Jackets starting job. Heading into training camp, it would not be crazy to believe that the Hamilton, Georgia native could be the top quarterback.
Marshall was Tech’s third-string quarterback last season and appeared in just two games. In 2015, Marshall was used as an A-Back for the Yellow Jackets before moving to quarterback for last season.

The Georgia native ascended to the top spot of the Yellow Jackets depth chart this past spring when then projected starting quarterback Matthew Jordan went down with a foot injury.
At 5-foot-10 and 185-pounds, Marshall provides a similar stature to that of Justin Thomas but is a tad slower as he was clocked around the 4.5 mark coming out of high school. A running back in high school, there isn’t much to go off for Marshall at quarterback outside of the spring game.
In this year’s spring game, Marshall rushed for 57-yards on 12 carries while completing four-of-nine passing attempts for 37-yards. This summer, Marshall’s biggest needs was to work on his decision making on the option as well as working on his accuracy. That being said, Marshall still may be one of the better options the Jackets have at quarterback entering the season.
