Iman Marshall just wrapped up his sophomore season on Friday night but already the Long Beach (Calif.) Poly cornerback is hearing from many elite programs.
Recruiting will come more into focus this off-season but Marshall said he's hearing from some SEC powerhouses, some top schools locally and he's excited where things are headed.
"I'm hearing from a lot of schools, from LSU to Alabama to Florida to USC," Marshall said. "I'm hearing from everywhere and I'm excited to be able to play.
"You have to take it slow."
The 2015 standout already has offers from UCLA, Washington and Washington State and over the coming years it's expected his recruitment could become really busy.
Some project Marshall as one of the top cornerbacks in his class nationally and with that recognition comes a lot of recruiting attention.
His sophomore season was an interesting one as Long Beach Poly, a traditional powerhouse in California, got off to a 1-3 start.
It then rallied off 11 straight victories over some serious competition to reach the state bowl championship game against Granite Bay, which defeated Poly, 21-20.
There was a changing mindset in the locker room after the difficult start and Marshall said the entire team rallied around each other.
"It's been a bumpy road," Marshall said. "We went through a 1-3 start and then we came back and coming to play on this stage right here it's a great accomplishment. I'm happy we came here, we didn't come out with the victory but they're a great team. It just didn't go our way.
"We just went in the locker room and said we need to get it together. We need to work together as a family. Brotherhood, unity, sacrifice are the morals we go by so it was a great accomplishment getting here."
