Nico Marley, son of Rohan Marley, has committed to Tulane University. The football player will attend the university after graduating from high school next year.
Although he is not as tall as some football players, Nico is classified as a hard worker who can add value to any team. “He led our team in tackles and tackles for loss. He’s a phenomenal player from sideline to sideline. He’s our team leader and really reminds me of his dad at Miami. He’s got that Marley spirit, something inside that you can’t coach,” says high school coach Mark Guandolo.
Nico’s father made a name for himself as an athlete at Miami University. Nico’s grandfather, Bob Marley, is viewed as one of the most prolific music artists of his time.
