Did you know?
His mother, Maureen, is a cousin of Bo Pelini's wife, Mary Pat, and Marlowe has known the Pelini family his entire life.
"Very deserving, a tremendous athlete. He was the fastest guy on our team, but he's also got a feel for the game. His knowledge of football allowed him to do a lot of things." -- P.J. Fecko, Cardinal Mooney coach
The gurus say
Marlowe is not ranked by rivals.com or scout.com.
One of the last commits of the 2008 class, Marlowe was a jack-of-all-trades in high school, playing receiver, quarterback and defensive back in addition to returning punts and kickoffs. Though undersized, he showed a knack for stepping up when his teammates were in need. With star QB Dan McCarthy lost to a neck injury during the state playoffs, Marlowe stepped in to run the offense and performed admirably, leading his squad to the title game. He rushed 17 times for 104 yards and a touchdown in the championship loss. He brings toughness and an understanding of the game, not to mention a history of winning. He is the first player from the state of Ohio to commit to Nebraska since DeJuan Groce and Matt Shook joined the Husker program in February of 1998.
Big picture, this could work. Marlowe will help his NU teammates get to know the personal side of Bo Pelini. He might also allow the Huskers to establish a connection at Cardinal Mooney, a hotly contested recruiting ground. He'll likely need patience to find a role on the field at Nebraska.
These are the players who built Nebraska football.
