Plenty to Process

One school stands out for four-star defensive back Trey Marshall.

Even so, Marshall, a member of the recruiting class of 2014, is nowhere close to making a decision.

Marshall, of Lake City, Fla., participated in Ole Miss' elite camp last weekend, where he said his goal was "just to compete, that's all. Just work on my techniques and skills and get better."

Ole Miss is one of four schools he currently lists as the favorites for his signature, though the home-state Seminoles hold the advantage.

"I've been there plenty of times," he said of FSU. "I just like the coaches and the tradition and the feel I get from them."

Not to say Ole Miss - or South Florida and Tennessee, for that matter - don't have a shot for the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Marshall, who ranks as the No. 17 safety in the country.

Yes, he favors Florida State, where he's visiting this week for camp. But the remaining three aren't far behind. Ole Miss was his first camp of the summer.

"They're still pretty even right now," Marshall said. "I haven't really rethought anything. Everybody's pretty much even."

Marshall had never visited Ole Miss before the weekend. He came away impressed, especially in the top-10 recruiting class the Rebels signed in February, which featured the top overall prospect in the country, Robert Nkemdiche.

"I like their campus. Now that I've done got up here, I really like the school and the vibe from the players," he said. "And the class they signed last year was a big class talent-wise."

Marshall said he is "probably in the middle" of the decision-making process. He originally intended on announcing his school of choice at The Opening, a Nike-sponsored four-day competition of some of the nation's elite high school talent held in Beaverton, Ore., June 30 through July 3.

However, those plans have been put on hold.

For now, he's taking his time and weighing his options. Among the other schools to show interest include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, LSU and USC.

"Just to talk to the coaches and get a feel for them," he said, when asked of what he's looking for in a school.
