- Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall 2012)
Mike Marrow is one of three fullbacks who played a significant role in 2012 who return for the Huskers this season. The 6-2, 250-pound Marrow is joined in the group by fellow senior C.J. Zimmerer and sophomore Andy Janovich. In addition to his work at fullback, Marrow could also be looked at as a short-yardage option at running back, and he is spending some spring practice time at that spot.
A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Marrow spent time in the football programs at Alabama and Eastern Michigan, before transferring to Nebraka before the 2011 season.
Marrow played in nine games with starts against Arkansas State and Michigan. Marrow missed the final four games of the regular season with an injury, but was back in action in the Big Ten title game. He carried the ball 10 times for 30 yards, with a season-high four carries for a season-high 15 yards in the opener against Southern Miss. He also had three carries for seven yards against Idaho State.
Marrow joined the NU program in the summer and sat out the year as a transfer.
Before Nebraska (Eastern Michigan/Alabama/Central Catholic HS)
Marrow spent the 2010 season at Eastern Michigan before transferring to Nebraska. Marrow began his college career at Alabama where he redshirted in 2009. Marrow was regarded as one of the top fullback prospects in the country following his prep career at Central Catholic High in Holland, Ohio. As a senior, Marrow rushed for 893 yards and 11 touchdowns for Coach Greg Dempsey. As a junior, Marrow played for New Albany High and ran for 810 yards and 10 touchdowns, averaging better than five yards per carry. Out of high school, Marrow chose Alabama over Nebraska, Penn State, Wisconsin and Toledo.
Mike is the son of Vince and Dr. Monique Marrow, and he was born on Sept. 9, 1990. He has volunteered his time with Husker Heroes. Marrow is a sociology major and earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall 2012.
