Burke County star football player Donquell Green has committed to Marshall.

Green completed his high school career this past season, leading the Bears to a 9-3 season where they reached the Class AAAA state quarterfinals. As a starter, the dual-threat quarterback piloted a high-scoring offense that scored 40 points or more in 12 games the past two seasons.

Green publicly announced his decision on Twitter, saying, “Through this hard process I have come down too this .. I will be attending THE university of Marshall !!! #HerdNation.”

For his junior season, Green was named The Augusta Chronicle’s All-Area Georgia Player of the Year. He rushed for 1,827 yards and passed for 1,399 yards in 2012.

As a sophomore in 2011, Green shared quarterback duties with starter Corey Mayton in the Bears’ 14-1 state championship season in Class AAA. In the state final against Peach County, the speedy Green rushed for 117 yards and two touchdowns in the 28-14 win.

No stranger to potent offenses, Green now goes to a Thundering Herd program that averaged 42.1 points per game this season.

Dang, was hoping that he would go to Ga Tech, but good luck @ Marshall.
