Marvell Tell grabs early offers, attention

The defensive back class in California has been outstanding each of the past two years, and from early indications, it appears the 2015 crop won't suffer a setback. A number of sophomore defensive backs have earned plenty of attention from college coaches, but the recruitment of Marvell Tell (Encino, Calif./Crespi) seems to be picking up in a hurry.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound safety was very good at the Los Angeles Nike Camp last month and again showed his skill set at the B2G 7-on-7 Elite 16 tournament in April. Tell landed offers this spring from California, Nebraska and San Jose State, with the offer from the Cornhuskers coming earlier this week.
