Texas State’s Barbee has had a quick impact

Texas State receiver Marcell Barbee has started just six career games, but has already scored 11 touchdown passes.  This ties him closer since the Bobcats moved to the FBS level in 2012.

SAN MARCOS – Last year, Texas receiver Marcell Barbee led the team in catches (40), receiving yards (584) and touchdowns (10) despite starting just four games.

His 10 touchdowns placed him at No. 2 on the school career touchdown catch list since Texas State became an FBS school in 2012. Javen Banks tops the list with 11, but they arrived for three seasons. The Barbee 10s arrived in their first season after transferring from Iowa Western Community College.

Barbee only needed one game this season to tie Banks, scoring Bay-20’s initial loss to the 29-20 at Texas State.

Now as a full-time starter, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound baby from Pueblo, Colorado, is once again leading the team with 12 catches of 123 yards and the only touchdown through two games. He earned eight maximum recipes in the race in last week’s 23-17 overtime win at Florida International.
