Rush through the roster: #11 Marlon Pope

Posted: August 12, 2014 in Football

Marlon Pope, a junior college player and part of the 2014 recruiting class, enrolled early and practiced with the team during the spring.

#19 Marlon Pope – 6’4″ 259 lbs. – Junior – Tight end – Hattiesburg, MS (Hattiesburg MS) (Miss Gulf Coast CC)

2013: Pope, part of the 2014 recruiting class, played at Miss. Gulf Coast CC. In 2013, he recorded 6 receptions for 111 yards.

2014 Bull Rush Prediction: Pope was a great signing in the 2014 class and will play a very important role in 2014. He isn’t know for being a big time pass catcher like Mike McFarland and Sean Price are, but he brings the blocking aspect of the tight end position that will be very important for the offense going forward. I don’t think Pope will be a starter, but look for him to be on the line in the multi-tight end looks the offense will have and for him to be a key blocker on the edge, sometimes sneaking out on a passing route.
