Vols Offensive Coordinator In Awe Of Marquez North


When Marquez North committed to Tennessee shortly before signing day this past winter, we knew he was going to be an integral part of Tennessee’s offense this season, due to the considerably large talent loss suffered by the Vols.

What we didn’t know, however, is that he’d be making SportsCenter’s “Top 10 Plays” on almost a weekly basis.

The fans aren’t the only ones that have been thoroughly impressed by North. Vols offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian had a ton of great things to say about North after practice on Wednesday.

Bajakian: You know all three catches frankly that Marquez had were unbelievable. Every single one of them were just, I don’t know if I can describe it. Obviously being able to do it in a critical situation at the end of a game like that is impressive, especially for a freshman…..Sure there’s a natural skill that goes into it and he’s worked hard. He’s worked hard about being aggressive to the football. Make no mistake about it- I don’t think it was luck. What he was able to execute on that particular play is a testament to the work that he’s put in.

What Marquez North has done in a new/inexperienced offense can not be overstated — it’s impressive.

In case you’ve been watching CSI reruns, or you just want to relive it, here’s some of North’s top moments so far this season.
