Recruiting Spotlight - Marquin Russell
When it comes to football, Russell caught 10 passes for 322 yards and five touchdowns on offense, and on defense had an impressive pick-six in the Lancers' rout of Decatur. He was a second-team All-League selection as a junior on both sides of the ball.
In recruiting, UCLA, Washington State and Utah have already been in touch with Russell. He was supposed to make it to a WSU Junior Day at the end of February, but a lot of snow put a wrench in those plans.
During the spring, he will be defending his state track title, and he'll also be trying out for the Junior Olympics and taking part in meets like the Simplot meet in Idaho and the Pasco Invite in the Tri-Cities.
At the same time he's trying to fit in as much football as possible. He'll be joining teammate Sammie Long at the Badger Elite 7-on-7 Tournament in Las Vegas at the end of March.
