Draft Scout Marqueston Huff News
01/22/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl Wednesday: Under-the-radar defenders highlight North practice...Blustery winds frustrated the quarterbacks practicing at the Senior Bowl Tuesday, but a day later it was the awareness and athleticism of defensive backs which made passing difficult. Wyoming defensive back Marqueston Huff blanketed receivers, showcasing the light feet, fluid hips and straight-line speed to turn with the North's variety of receivers, ranging in size from former Cowboys' teammate Robert Herron (5-foot-9, 193 pounds) to Saginaw Valley State's chiseled 6-foot-2, 212-pound Jeff Janis. Huff's athleticism is sure to intrigue scouts looking for cover corners and he's previously shown the toughness to handle NFL physicality due to his time at safety at Wyoming. - Rob Rang & Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/19/13 - 2013 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST SECOND TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): DB Marqueston Huff, Sr., Wyoming,...Huff concluded his Wyoming career among the nation's leaders in tackles in 2013. He led all Mountain West defensive backs in tackles with 127. That was 30 tackles more than any other MW defensive back, and it ties him for 11th on the Wyoming single-season tackle list. Huff averaged 10.6 tackles per game to rank No. 4 in the conference among all players at all positions. His 10.6 tackle average also ranked him No. 11 in the nation.
Huff was credited with 74 solo tackles, to lead the Cowboys in that category. He ranked No. 2 in the MW and No. 9 in the NCAA in solo tackles. Huff recorded six double-figure tackle games this season, including a career high 20 versus Utah State in the final game of the season. Those 20 tackles ties for the third best single-game performance in Wyoming history. He also had 18 tackles at Nebraska, which ties for No. 7 on the Wyoming all-time chart. - Wyoming football
10/29/13 - Wyoming fires defensive coordinator...Wyoming defensive coordinator Chris Tormey was fired Tuesday and replaced by defensive line coach Jamar Cain. Head coach Dave Christensen announced the move. Tormey will be paid for the final two months of his contract, the school said. Wyoming is 93rd in points allowed in the Football Bowl Subdivision at 31.8 per game. "I felt that we needed to make a change at this time to give our football team and the young men on it the best opportunity to win our remaining four regular-season games," Christensen said in a news release. "The last two weeks, our defense has not performed up to the expectations of our coaching staff, our players, nor our fans." The Cowboys lost to San Jose State 51-44 last week after leading the Spartans 23-7 early in the second quarter. Wyoming was on the short end of a 52-22 score against Colorado State on Oct. 19. - The Sports Xchange
09/02/13 - WEEK 1 MOUNTAIN WEST DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Wyoming FS Marqueston Huff...The native of Texarkana, Texas, led Wyoming with 18 total tackles (eight solo tackles) as the Cowboys dropped a narrow 37-34 decision to No. 18 Nebraska on the road. Huff forced one fumble against Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez in the fourth quarter and recovered it at the Wyoming 38-yard line. That turnover led to a Wyoming touchdown three plays later that pulled the Cowboys to within three points at 37-34 with 2:01 left to play in the game.
His 18 total tackles ties him for the nation's lead. He is tied for second in the NCAA in forced fumbles (1) and tied for fifth in fumbles recovered (1). His eight solo tackles rank him ninth in the country. Huff was also credited with a pass breakup. It is the second Mountain West Defensive Player of the Week honor for Huff. He also was named MW Defensive Player of the Week as a junior for his performance against UNLV when he forced a Rebel fumble at the one-yard line to save a touchdown and was credited with seven tackles. - Wyoming football
11/19/12 - WEEK 12 MOUNTAIN WEST CO-DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Marqueston Huff, Wyoming, Junior, Cornerback, Texarkana, Texas/Liberty-Eylau HS...Junior cornerback Marqueston Huff registered seven tackles (three solo) and a forced fumble to aid the Wyoming defense in a 28-23 win at UNLV. Huff's forced fumble came on a Rebel fake field goal attempt midway through the third quarter with Cowboys holding a 28-10 lead.
As Rebel quarterback Caleb Herring made a sideline dash from 25 yards out, Huff knocked the ball from Herring's hands at the one-yard line, sending it through the end zone for a Wyoming touchback. On UNLV's first possession of the fourth quarter, Huff made a key tackle on Rebel running back Tim Cornett for only a three-yard gain on a second and 10-yard play. That series would end with an incomplete pass on third down and a punt on fourth down. - Mountain West football
