RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Because UCLA is on the quarter system and there is still school ahead, Cassius Marsh is only getting a brief introduction to the Seattle Seahawks during rookie minicamp this weekend.

His first impression when he arrived at the headquarters of the Super Bowl champions? Well, he was thrilled at the chance to practice next to a lake.

Marsh is trying to leave as strong an impression as possible during the three-day rookie camp because he has to return to school.

The defensive end was the first of Seattle’s three fourth-round picks in last week’s NFL draft. The next time he’ll be back with the Seahawks is sometime in June and before full squad minicamp.

But he’ll be headed back to school with a playbook and a plan to start adding weight to his 254-pound frame.
