Phoenix Washington three-star defensive end Kharyee Marshall is one of the best kept secrets in the West.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound strongside defensive end has been a hot target with some regional schools, but he's talented enough to be a top target nationally.
"I already had offers from Utah, Nevada, Boise State and Idaho," Marshall, who had 106 tackles, 16 sackls and one interception in 2007, said. "But I just got UTEP. They just offered me last Wednesday. They are in the middle range of my interest."
Of the schools that have offered you, does Marshall have a favorite?
"They are all in the middle pretty much, but Boise State is probably at the top," Marshall said. "Their education and communication programs are what I like the most about them. I am majoring in communication and broadcasting."
Marshall said he is pleased with the schools after him, but admits he would like to hear more from some Pac 10 schools.
"I have been talking to Cal here and there, and Arizona sent me hand written letters telling me to call them," he said. "San Diego State and Wyoming contact me a lot. I have talked to ASU in the past but again not since the camp."
That camp was Arizona State's 101 camp, where Marshall said he thought he performed well.
"It was just fun," he said. "I went up against a couple good linemen. I went up against Cory Adams, and we both did really well. I knew all the coaches, and they knew me. So it went really well."
