Washington State was not in the orbit of Alphonso Marsh earlier this season. That's changed with Mike Leach having come on board in Pullman. WSU is not only now solidly in the mix for Marsh, they're hosting him this weekend on an official trip.
"I'm looking forward to seeing what they have (academically) and how the depth chart looks at my position," said Marsh (6-2, 175) of WSU.
Marsh has been oft-referred to this past season as a lockdown corner at Compton's Dominguez High.
YOU MIGHT THINK Marsh would be a safety at the BCS level given his size (6-2, 175). Most players that tall don't have the hip turn and the quicks needed to play on the island. Marsh, however, has double digit offers with four from the Pac-12 and WSU, and virtually everyone else, likes him at corner.
Marsh, ranked three stars and the No. 67 rated cornerback in the nation.
He said he is being recruited hardest by four – Washington State, Utah, UW and Hawaii. All have offered.
He's already officially visited Utah and UW, with WSU and Hawaii to come these next two weeks.
"Utah the last five years they've put five corners in the league, this year will likely make six," said Marsh.
Marsh said he doesn't anticipate making his decision until Signing Day.
