WR, 5-10, 160, Youngstown, Ohio (Cardinal Mooney HS)
Tim Marlowe was one of the final additions to the Nebraska recruiting class, committing to the Husker program this week. Marlowe is an extremely quick and explosive athlete. Marlowe will begin his Nebraska career at receiver, part of a talented four-player group at the wideout spot. A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Marlowe 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. Marlowe showed his versatility last season as a senior at Cardinal Mooney High School, beginning the season at receiver, before being pressed into service at quarterback and leading his team to the state championship game. Marlowe also continued to play a role on the Mooney defense. Marlowe ran for almost 300 yards on 42 carries and scored four touchdowns. He also caught nine passes for 216 yards and three more touchdowns. On defense, he had 36 tackles, led his team in pass deflections with 32 and in interceptions with five. He also had three kickoff returns for 70 yards. His play helped Cardinal Mooney and Coach P.J. Fecko to a 14-1 record and a Division IV state runner-up finish. In the state title game, Marlowe rushed 17 times for 104 yards and a touchdown, completed 5-of-6 passes for 135 yards and a touchdown and made three tackles on defense. Marlowe was also a two-way standout for Cardinal Mooney as a junior, helping the Cardinals to a perfect 15-0 record and a Division IV state title. Marlowe is the son of Richard and Maureen Marlowe, and was born on Feb. 10, 1989.
