During the second game of the season against Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln, Marshall took a vicious hit that ruptured his stomach. He underwent emergency surgery that night and was in the hospital for the better part of that week. Just over a month later Marshall is optimistic about where his recovery stands.
"It's going great," Marshall said. "I should be back to 100 percent in a couple of weeks. Maybe the end of this month."
Marshall is so confident, in fact, that he believes he will play sometime this season. "Oh I'm going to play," Marshall said. "I want to be a leader for my team."
As for where his recruitment stands, Marshall is ready to be a Seminole.
"I'm looking forward to the atmosphere," said Marshall. "I really like Florida State's defense, fans, and their tradition."
He is also a big fan of defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach Jeremy Pruitt. "[Pruitt] is a really good person," Marshall said. "I'm going to love playing for him."
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Marshall is the No. 17 rated safety and the No. 179 prospect overall in the 2014 Scout 300. Marshall has not scheduled any visit yet but is planning to visit Florida State soon.
