5-star WR Terrace Marshall Jr. suffers serious ankle injury

SHREVEPORT, La. — There’s a major injury bug spreading in North Louisiana. The nation’s top wide receiver is the latest to fall victim to it.

Terrace Marshall Jr. , the top-ranked prospect in Louisiana’s 2018 class, suffered what appeared to be a serious left ankle injury in the waning seconds of the second quarter during Parkway (La.) High School’s Friday night tilt against Pearl (Miss.) High School at the annual Battle On The Border series.

Marshall was running down field as Parkway looked to get a late score before halftime. As the 5-star wide receiver went up for a contested ball, he collided with a defensive back, who landed on his left ankle as he hit the turf. Immediately after reaching the ground, Marshall removed his helmet and looked to the sideline for medical assistant.

As his mother and father, Parkway coaches and best friend  Justin Rogers rushed to the field, Marshall’s left ankle was placed in an air cast and he put on a stretcher. On his way out to being carted off the field, Marshall gave an optimistic wave to the crowd in Independence Stadium.

Marshall was rushed to the hospital soon after.

The injury comes one week after Rogers, his 4-star quarterback and teammate, tore his ACL.

Marshall is the nation’s top wide receiver and the No. 1 offensive target on LSU’s 2018 recruiting board. Stick with SEC Country for more details on the injury as they are available.
