LSU WR Terrace Marshall shares statement declaring for NFL Draft
Terrace Marshall Jr. has made it official: his time at LSU has come to an end.
Marshall shared a lengthy statement on his Instagram account announcing that he has declared for the 2021 NFL Draft, thanking LSU fans, coaches and teammates.
“First of many words, I thank God for all the blessings that he has allowed to come my way because without him I wouldn’t be in this position. I am blessed to have a platform to display God’s work and show the world that in all things we must give thanks. As I reflect on the past, every trial and tribulation I have faced has made me who I am today. I strive to be the best every day and I won’t let up until my destiny is fulfilled.
“To my parents and sister, I whole-heartedly thank y’all for being solid and showing endless love and support towards me on this journey. To my extended family, close friends, fans and support system, thank y’all for believing in me and supporting me through it all. To my teammates/brothers, thank y’all for pushing me to be great everyday, the times we had on an off the field together are priceless. To Coach O and the LSU staff, thank you for presenting me with the opportunity to contribute to LSU, my 3 years at such a great University will forever be cherished.
Since a kid, to play in the NFL to retire my parents has been my #1 mission. After careful consideration but with faith, I have decided to declare for the 2021 NFL Draft.”
Marshall’s early departure is a tough blow to an LSU offense that struggled in a 20-7 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday night. He had 10 receptions, including the Tigers’ only touchdown catch, in that game. Marshall led the team in all major receiving categories with 48 catches for 731 yards and 10 touchdowns.
