MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - "Yeah, that's probably our biggest challenge right now. We've got four guys that we're going to try to evaluate for the qb position, and that's a lot of guys - and we'd rather name a starter soon, rather than later," said Gus Malzahn at SEC Media Days last month.
He’s spent fall camp trying to find the right fit for his starting QB and over the weekend, he did just that.
"We named Nick Marshall our starting quarterback yesterday, and really there was a couple of factors that lead into it … it was a close battle, but the bottom line is, when Nick knew what to do, he outperformed the others,” said Malzahn.
Marshall is a transfer from Garden City Community College - where he passed for more than three thousand yards and rushed for more than one thousand, last season.
"I just came in and do what I did and let whatever happens take control of it - It's a good fit because I've been running these types of offenses since I left high school and I did some of that in ju-co too, so I'm well fit for it,” said Marshall.
"You know it felt different, it really did from the stand point - he was a lot more vocal and I think his teammates really responded to him, and that's natural, that usually happens, and it's always good to see how a guy responds once you give him the keys to the car and I really felt like he went out there, he was encouraging and it was good to see,” said Malzahn.
"It's gonna feel great … the team's behind me and I'm behind them 100% so we're just going to go out there and win games,” said Marshall
