"I've always wanted to be in the military since I was little," said Satchell. "To be able to attend one of the best colleges in the world and also getting to play big time D-1 football is fulfilling a longtime dream of mine. Signing Day was great. It was the most people our high school has ever had sign. It was a unique group of seniors.
"Coach Ingram came by my high school a couple of months into the season and it spurred my interest. The more I got to meet and know the coaches the more interested I became. I'm not sure yet but I think I want to go into the Marines after graduation. I've always loved the Marine Corps."
Satchell, 6-foot-4, 265-pounds, was a two-year starter in high school. He played in the Kentucky-Tennessee Border Bowl after his senior season. Satchell plans on taking his official visit to campus during his spring break in March.
