Marshall talks McDowell and Peppers

Michigan defensive end commit Lawrence Marshall reflects on his commitment, his recruitment of Malik McDowell, his thoughts on Jabrill Peppers and more.

Auburn HILLS, Mich.--Earlier this Month Lawrence Marshall announced his commitment to the University of Michigan. It’s been a little over two weeks since his commitment and the Southfield (Mich.) standout says he has no regrets since announcing he will be a Wolverine.

“It feels good to be committed to Michigan,” Marshall told GoBlueWolverine. “I’m on Team 135. We got a good class coming in. Everybody has been very gracious to me. Everybody has been hitting me up and saying congratulations and stuff like that."

Marshall  is rated a four-star prospect and the No. 15 DE in the latest player rankings. At 6-foot-3, 215-pounds, he fits the mold of a quick defensive end and has been compared to current Michigan defensive lineman, Frank Clark.

While Marshall says he is looking forward to his senior season, he says has been putting on his recruiting pitch on his workout buddy, Malik McDowell

“I’m just telling him to be part of Team 135,” Marshall said. “The best players in Michigan go to Michigan. So Malik, you got to come.”

Despite his strong recruiting effort, Marshall says McDowell hasn’t hinted any front runner for his services.

“He really hasn’t been telling me that much,” Marshall said. “He is just going with the flow really.”

 Marshall’s recruiting hasn’t stopped there, as he also has been in consistent contact with five-star cornerback, Jabrill Peppers.

“Jabrill Peppers, I am trying to get him to come to Michigan,” Marshall said. “I think he will be Michigan. I text him like every day. I just hope everyone comes to Michigan. I hope he comes.

“If he commits to Michigan, then will have a great class. A great class.”

In the meantime, Marshall says he will be hitting up some camps this summer.

“I’m probably going to go to the Michigan camp this summer,” Marshall said. “I’m probably going to be at Sound Mind, Sound Body, too.”

Although fall camp is still three months away, Marshall says there are few elements he wants to improve heading into his senior season.

“Explosion and getting faster and stronger,” Marshall said.
