Marshall calls USC 'premier university'

FOX Sports NEXT caught up with 2015 Long Beach (Calif.) Poly cornerback Iman Marshall at Passing Down's 7on7 Best of the West tournament. Marshall flew straight into the tournament from the Penn Relays.

It's still very early in the process for 2015 Long Beach (Calif.) Poly cornerback Iman Marshall but the offers are already starting to pile up.

It was easy to see why on Sunday.

Marshall, also a track star, was in Pennsylvania participating in the Penn Relays over the weekend. He flew home to Southern California Sunday and drove straight to Fullerton to play with his 7on7 team in Passing Down's Best of the West tournament.

"Each and every day you try to get better at your craft," Marshall said after his first game of the day. "It's another day for me to get better at what I do."

The 16-year old 6-foot 175 pound corner has offers from California, Oregon State, UCLA, USC, Washington, and Washington State.

Though he is continuing to grow he insists he wants to play cornerback at the next level, modeling his game after the likes of the Seahawks' Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner. "You see the position developing to bigger corners," Marshall explained. "If they can do it, why can't I?"

Growing up in Southern California, Marshall admits the school to watch has been USC. "You always watch 'SC," Marshall said. "That's the premier college in Southern California."

Asked if that is causing USC to stand out at all in the recruiting process Marshall was quick to respond that he's keeping it open. "I'm just trying to see all the aspects that are best for me," he said.
