2015 CB has Irish in mind
Iman Marshall of Long Beach (Calif.) Polytechnic demonstrated his ability to compete among the best when he gave a strong performance at The Opening as one of only handful of underclassmen in attendance. "It was an honor that Iman got invited," said Tony Marshall, Iman's dad. "He learned a lot and I knew he was pretty blown away to be there, but he made the most of the opportunity." Marshall said after the Irish offered this spring, Notre Dame hasn't strayed far from his or his son's minds. "Notre Dame is high on the list, I can tell you that," Marshall Sr. said. "Iman and I speak about Notre Dame all of the time. It's one of the most prestigious schools out there, athletically and academically, so how could you not be considering Notre Dame? We will take a visit there at some point." Even though UCLA and USC are considered to be favorites to land the 6-foot-2, 190-pound defensive back, Marshall Sr. says recruiting isn't the focus for Iman right now, and he's not ready to name favorites. "We understand the process, and we know that the relationships with the coaches will come in time," Marshall Sr. said. "Right now, he's focused on his season and getting better. Recruiting isn't his first priority because he's so busy with everything else right now." After The Opening, Marshall's attention didn't turn to recruiting like so many of his peers. "We didn't visit any places this summer," Marshall Sr. said. "I might take him to Washington and Oregon next week. There's a dead period right now with high school football, so we have a little time." With offers on the table from the likes of Arizona State, Florida State, Michigan, Ole Miss, Oregon, Tennessee, UCLA, USC and Washington, Marshall's athleticism hasn't gone unnoticed. "He's such a versatile guy, he can play a number of positions," Marshall Sr said. "His love is cornerback though, and that's what he wants to play in college."
