Marshall talks Oregon at The Opening

Long Beach (Calif.) Poly cornerback Iman Marshall discusses his time at The Opening and if Oregon is up for one of his five official visit slots.

Iman Marshall is the top corner in the West region and he’s out to prove that he’s worthy of the ranking at The Opening. Following the conclusion of morning practice, Marshall spoke with eDuck about improving his game at the camp.

“I’m always driven,” Marshall said. “Once you get complacent, somebody will try and get your spot. That’s why I want to be on the top.”

Marshall is also looking forward to building bonds with the other athletes, some of whom he’ll likely line up or play against at the next level.

“I’m just coming out here and building friendships and being the best player I can be personally inside and outside of football,”

When it comes to recruiting, Marshall claims he has no leaders. He has been on Oregon’s radar for some time and the 6-foot-2, 190-pound DB is still keeping the Ducks in consideration.

“I like the program,” he said. “Oregon is second to none when it comes to uniforms, the football program and stuff like that.”

Secondary coach John Neal and Marshall have continued to develop a relationship throughout the process and the five-star prospect believes he can be a factor early on in the Oregon defensive scheme.

“They really produce a lot of good DB’s and stuff like that,” Marshall said. “I think I can really come in and produce and hopefully play as a freshman if I attend the school.”

Marshall has an official visit lined up to Notre Dame and believes he’ll take another to Florida State. The other three spots could be filled by a number of top teams, including Oregon.

“You’ve got Ohio State, Oregon, LSU, Tennessee, Michigan,” Marshall said. “There’s a lot of schools out there that’s hanging out for the last three spots.”

With so many attractive options, Marshall is eyeing a time after camp season concludes to start narrowing down his list of schools.

“Once I get done with these camp circuits and really get into the recruitment process then that’s where I’ll find my leaders,” he said.
