Scouting Report The son of Bama great Bobby Humphrey, but an accomplished athlete in his own right. Was a top notch hurdler in track & field, and was widely considered by many to be the top cornerback in the country in this signing class. Made it to Bama this summer but has made some great strides and will most likely see the field in some capacity this season.
runtheoption22's Take Most seasons, this is your #2 or #3 stud in an Alabama class and the #1 for 99% of the school's in the country. This shows how deep this class is and it is even more amazing that he is the #2 CB in this class. Marlon has the pedigree, the speed, the intangibles to go down in Tide lore, just like his father. He knows how to play, he came from a great system-based school surrounded by good-to-great teammates- which is why I think Marlon is ranked a little lower-- he didnt have to be the star, but he still is one.
WMack4Bama's Take Excellent size and length. But more than anything he's very sound in his technique. He's received superb coaching at Hoover High School. And since getting to Tuscaloosa this summer, he's received even more superb coaching from Coaches Saban & Smart personally as both coaches have given Marlon hands on attention and have been pleased with his progression. By the 6th game of this season, it'll be apparent that Humphrey & fellow freshman CB Tony Brown will give us the best CB tandem we've had since Deshea Townsend and Fernando Bryant.
