No. 5 – Rasheed Marshall

To many, Rasheed Marshall was the second coming of another Top 10 Mountaineer quarterback, Major Harris (I’m getting to him eventually, I promise). Marshall and Harris both hailed from Pittsburgh and both had electrifying speed. They were thought of as run-first quarterbacks, but could also throw it deep.

Marshall is No. 5 all-time in pass attempts (795), No. 5 in pass completions (433) and No. 4 in passing touchdowns (45). For quarterbacks only, Marshall is No. 3 in rushing with 481 carries for 2,040 yards.

Marshall helped usher in the Rich Rodriguez era of Mountaineer football and led the team to three bowl games. In 2004, he was named the Big East Offensive Player of the Year and was drafted in 2005, in the fifth round by the San Francisco 49ers. Marshall also had practice squad stints with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the St. Louis Rams.
