Marshall knows what his strengths on the court are, his size and leaping ability. "When people watch me play they see me as a big man who can jump up over everybody," said Marshall, "I can dribble the ball but most people like me to be on the block."

However, he wants to become a more versatile player.

"I am working on my perimeter game so that I can be an all-around player," said Marshall.

Although still young, he also wants to become more of a leader on his team.

"This year I want to be a better leader and take control of my team," he said.

As of now, two schools are showing the most interest in him recruiting-wise.

"Ole Miss and Mississippi State are the top schools looking at me right now," said Marshall.

One school has been trying to get him in for an unofficial visit.

"Mississippi State has invited me to come to a game but I haven't done it," said Marshall. "I will probably do it, though."
