UGA Football: Recruit Keith Marshall Would Create a Dynamic Duo

Brennan ThomasContributor IIIMay 23, 2011

Despite a poor 2010 season, the Georgia Bulldogs were able to secure a top-10 recruiting class. This group was referred to as the "Dream Team." This group was highlighted by five-star running back prospect Isaiah Crowell.

This year's recruiting class will be focused on YouTube sensation Keith Marshall. I was simply speechless after viewing this kid's highlight tape. He has the ability to score on literally every play.

Now as he enters his senior season in high school, he will have even more opportunities to showcase his talent and time to make a decision on which school to attend.

He is currently contemplating a myriad of schools from the SEC to Pac-12. So it may seem like a long shot that he will choose UGA, but they are definitely in contention.

If Marshall does commit to Georgia, they will have one of the best running back tandems in recent history.

Just take a moment to think of the great duos of the past decade: Reggie Bush and Lendale White, Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson, Cadillac Williams and Ronnie Brown, or Darren McFadden and Felix Jones. 

Isaiah Crowell and Keith Marshall could be added to that list.

However, this one-two punch would not be the typical and frankly boring "Thunder and Lightning" where you run up the middle three plays with your big guy and then sweep with the quick guy. No, this would be more like a "lightning and lightning" combination.

Crowell, who will be a sophomore during Marshall's inaugural season, will be slightly more seasoned and able to pound the inside gaps. Yet, he will be pounding the middle with 4.4 break-away speed.

Marshall will then jump in with his fresh legs and 4.4 speed to absolutely wear the defense out. 

Though an unconventional grouping, the pair of backs should be able to break off one special run a game. If Richt is again able to lure in the top back in his 2012 recruiting class, the Crowell-Marshall tandem will be one for the ages.
