Former Greenbrier High School basketball star Eric Marshall established himself on the college court last weekend.
The 6-foot-4 freshman at Wofford scored a career-high 13 points, as his Terriers knocked off Davidson 83-76.
Marshall was a perfect 4-for-4 from the field, including 3-for-3 on three-pointers. He also knocked down both of his free-throw attempts, pulled down three rebounds, recorded an assist, and committed no turnovers in 19 minutes of action.
Though local observers realize Marshall is a highly skilled player, that's not a bad night's work for someone who was playing prep basketball in Columbia County at this time last year.
The Harlem High School football team stuggled at times during the 2003 season, but that didn't dissuade college recruiters from courting some of the Bulldogs.
From now until Feb. 4, college football's National Signing Day, I will provide a weekly update on prospects from Columbia County.
At Harlem, there are two seniors to watch.
First is three-year starter Tim Camp, who plans to sign with the U.S. Air Force Academy.
Camp excelled on both sides of the ball for Harlem, and has the potential to play offense or defense at the next level.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Camp played quarterback, running back, wide receiver and defensive back for Harlem, and he also returned kicks.
At Air Force, Camp likely will play either A-back on offense, or strong safety on defense.
Camp shouldn't be the only Bulldog suiting up on Saturdays next season.
Harlem senior Foster Moore could wind up at Fort Valley State University.
Moore helped anchor the offensive and defensive lines at Harlem, but the 6-foot-2, 225-pound athlete likely will be a college linebacker.
Fort Valley State has a good history of producing linebackers, including former NFL great Greg Lloyd (Pittsburgh Steelers).
Hopefully, Moore will find a home at the school in Fort Valley, Ga.
