Iman Marshall is a 5-star cornerback who could be an All-American in college. At 6'1" and 190 pounds, he combines excellent size for his position with great instincts, cover skills and strength.
Marshall is the latest in a long line of studs to come through national powerhouse Long Beach Poly High School in Southern California. Coaches from the likes of LSU, Michigan and Notre Dame are drooling over Marshall, says 247Sports.
The big cornerback will likely take some visits and hear everyone out, but he'll stay within the Pac-12. USC takes up almost all of his 247Sports Crystal Ball, with Stanford also in the mix. Plus, do not count out UCLA.
Marshall told the following to Adam Gorney of Rivals.com (subscription required) on July 14:
USC and UCLA are very strong in my recruiting process. I like what Jim Mora is doing with UCLA. They're going to be very strong and contending for a national championship this year. With USC, I'd like to see what they do this season. New coaches, a lot of top dudes are up there, they're doing their thing so I want to see how they play the young talent at SC.
