Marshall's Most Fun U-M Experience Yet

2014 Southfield (MI) Lawrence Marshall dishes on Michigan's official visit weekend to GoBlueWolverine. The four-star Maize & Blue commit gives his take on Jabrill Peppers' status, what's on the horizon with Vic Enwere, another position switch on the defensive line, and more.

Lawrence Marshall had been to Michigan’s campus numerous times before last weekend’s official visit, but his latest experience was special because was his longest stint at his future home thus far.  The chance to spend so much time with the current players and a dozen of his fellow Wolverine pledges was an experience he won’t soon forget.

“It was fun,” Marshall said excitedly. “Frank Clark was my host, and that’s like my boy! Every time I go up to Michigan I always hang out with him. We went to a practice on Saturday and then we (went to a game), hung out, and went to a party. It was fun.”

“Being with all of the Michigan commits was fun.  My roommate is probably going to be Maurice Ways or Jabrill Peppers.”

Peppers is a person of interest for both fans and recruits alike.  After speaking with his would-be teammate extensively over the weekend Marshall believes there isn’t any reason to be concerned.

“Jabrill is a cool guy,’ Marshall stated.  “We were just talking about when we get to Michigan we’ve just got to ball out and try get starting spots. He really didn’t talk about other schools.”

One youngster that did talk about another school was Sugar Land (TX) Austin running back Vic Enwere.  The Cal commitment had an eye-opening experience according to Marshall.

“Vic is a cool guy,” the Southfield star reported.  “I think he is about to decommit and come to Michigan.  That’s what I’m hoping.  That’s what he was talking about.”

With his visit now behind him Marshall’s attention has turned back to continuing to push himself in the weight room.  With further size and strength gains he believes he will be in contention to compete for playing time as soon as he sets foot in Ann Arbor.

“Coach Mattison was talking to me about (possibly playing early),” recalled Marshall.  “Taco is going to move to the five-tech and on third down (Mattison) is going to put his best rush-end in the game.  That’s his plan on like third & long situations.”

Marshall’s plan is to be one of the rush ends called upon.
