Pro deal for Korliss Marshall

Marshall was signed this week by the Edmonton Eskimos in the Canadian Football League. The CFL season begins in May.

After he was cut by Arkansas, Marshall found his way to Eastern Illinois. He played one season there and had 274 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns, as well as 2 receiving touchdowns.

Hope he takes advantage of it

May be his last chance

Good chance for him. A lot of talent, but at least here, just never “got it”. Hope it works for him, but it is up to him.

Agree. He needs to mature in order to make the most of it.

Dangit that kid could flat out play! Hate he could never get straight here. I loved him. Never forget as a freshman him taking that kickoff at baton rouge back for a td. Of course called back by a bs phantom holding or block in the back.
As a hog fan im aweful partial to the name corliss :grinning:

My recollection of him as a running back was that he was a one trick pony. If he could get to the edge, he was gone. Very poor vision. Not much cut back ability. He didn’t exactly tear it up in his one year at EIEIU.
