2015 Media Guide: Jalin Marshall is a tough and physical H-back with north-south speed who is in his third year with the program and with sophomore eligibility … after red-shirting the 2013 season while learning the intricacies of receiver after a high school career as a dual threat quarterback, Marshall
became a go-to performer for the Buckeyes with 559 snaps on offense to trail only Michael Thomas (604) among the receivers … he also contributed 104 plays on special teams and was one of the top punt returners in the nation, talents that have earned him accolades as a preseason All-American heading into the 2015 campaign … has caught a pass in 13 consecutive games (current) and has caught at least two passes in seven consecutive games … has scored eight touchdowns three different ways: six receiving, one rushing and one off a punt return … earned his first Varsity O letter last season.
