"I had discussed it with my family and we decided that Oklahoma State was the best place for me to go," Marshall said when we finally reached him in the noon hour on Wednesday.
Marshall had pledged to TCU very early in the process with, at the time, offers from Oklahoma State, North Texas, Nebraska, and Marshall in addition to the Horned Frogs.
Marshall's status as a recruit and prospect has only risen since as he is considered a four-star defensive end by the Scout recruiting staff. His 2013 football stats certainly reflect an explosive player and pass rusher on the defensive front with 39 total tackles, 22 tackles for loss, and five sacks. His tape from last season shows a lot more sacks and he seemingly gets in the opponents' backfield with the greatest of ease.
He is also a standout in basketball that showed his overall athletic ability with 11.9 points and 8.5 rebounds a game.
