Mac Marshall quits team, withdraws from school
BATON ROUGE- Mac Marshall has withdrawn from LSU and has left the baseball team, the sports department announced Friday.
Marshall, a freshman left-handed pitcher, is reportedly enrolling in junior college to be eligible for the draft in 2015. The junior college is in Florida.
"Mac has decided to take a different career path, so we wish him well," coach Paul Mainieri said. "We're moving forward with the pitchers who are here. Alex Lange, Jake Latz, Jake Godfrey, Doug Norman, Collin Strall and Austin Bain have all looked outstanding in individual workouts."
"This development in no way diminishes our enthusiasm for this recruiting class that was rated No. 1 in the country. We're going to have an excellent team, and this class will make a huge impact upon our success. We can't wait to get started with fall practice on October 6."
Mainieri said he would have no further comment about Marshall.
