Marshall, coming off back-to-back visits to Michigan and Michigan State following his commitment to the Buckeyes, announced his decommittment from Ohio State on Twitter late Wednesday night.
Marshall was the fourth member of Ohio State's 2014 recruiting class and the second prospect to commit from the state of Michigan, but the soon-to-be senior still has a desire to explore his options. Because of that, he reopened his recruitment on Wednesday night.
Defensive end isn't a particular need for Urban Meyer's 2014 class. Ohio State signed 5-star Noah Spence, 5-star Adolphus Washington and 4-star defensive end Se'Von Pittman at the position in 2012, followed by a pair of 4-star defensive ends in Tyquan Lewis and Joey Bosa in 2013.
Marshall will still consider Ohio State, but Michigan and Michigan State have made a very strong push for his services this week. Meyer could have a hard time swaying Marshall away from the home-state Michigan schools.
