Let's Hear It For Robert Marve

Strike up the student section. We need to flatter this recruit.

Former Miami QB Robert Marve will be in attendance this weekend for the Nebraska spring game. Marve visited Purdue last weekend and will visit Texas Tech and Arizona State after his visit to Lincoln. Said his high school football coach Robert Weiner,
"It's a little too early to say where he's at, and that's not to be too elusive or anything. Nebraska and Texas Tech are the wild cards, just because he hasn't seen those places and has no familiarity with those places at all. Neither recruited him out of high school. Those are places he really hasn't done a lot of looking into until recently. Robert's a gut-feel type of kid. He'll kind of know as he goes along which schools attract him and which ones he probably won't go to."
Although Marve wouldn't be eligible until 2010 and 2011, he certainly would add some depth down the road to an extremely thin group of quarterbacks. With Kody Spano to undergo knee surgery and no timetable set for his return, the Huskers will potentially have only three quarterbacks suited up - Zac Lee, Cody Green, and Latravis Washington - to begin the 2009 season. And with highly touted QB Blake Bell recently committing to Oklahoma (way to pressure the kid Bob), a commitment from Marve would surely put me at ease at the quarterback position for years to come.

Besides, what are the chances that he becomes the new Sam Keller? Not going to happen. He can't pick up Tempe 12 models like Sam can.
