Marsh and teammates hope to visit UW soon

One of the top corners on the west coast this year is Dominguez (Compton, Ca.) CB Alphonso Marsh. The physically imposing defensive back has the Huskies high on the list of schools that he's interested in and he, along with two of his teammates, is likely to be on campus next week to take in Washington's Spring Game on April 30th...

"Things are going really well right now," Marsh told after getting out of school Monday afternoon. "It's been pretty hectic with recruiting and all that, but it's a good thing because I know I have schools interested in me and I know my college will be paid for."

With his outstanding size (6'3", 180) and great body control, Marsh has been a popular young man this spring hauling in offers from the likes of Arizona, UCLA, SMU, Tennessee and New Mexico as well as Washington, which was one of the first schools to offer him.

"Coach (Demetrice) Martin and I have a special relationship," Marsh noted. "We have a bond that isn't like a coach and player, but more like brotherly.

"I talked to him earlier today just to get up on things and find out when I will be coming up there."

Speaking of that, Marsh said that he and teammates Brandon Beaver and Damion Turpin, who also have offers from the Dawgs, are hoping to make the trip north to see Washington's Spring Game.

"We don't have our tickets yet, but we're probably heading up there for the Spring Game," Marsh said. "We'll check the school out and see about the program and what it has to offer.

"It's been hot down here recently and I like the Southern California weather, but I like it cooler and I know up in Washington it's definitely cooler, so that's something that will be nice to see."

Marsh said he knows a couple current Huskies and that he talks to them every now and then.

"Kevin Smith and I went to junior high together and I played against Jesse Callier," Marsh said. "I haven't talked to Kevin since the season, but he said he really likes it up there and it's something I just had to see."

As far as making a decision, Marsh said he's not close to deciding anything, even a list of top schools, but said Washington will remain there until the end.

"I like Washington a lot," Marsh said. "They went bowling last year, so that was big, and they have a lot of kids from California up there and the staff really makes it happen as far as winning and getting guys ready to play at the next level.

"I will probably make my decision either during the season or right after. I don't want to wait until Signing Day (February 1st), but I also don't want to rush things."

We'll continue to keep track of Marsh and will speak to him after his visit to Seattle later this month.
