Four-star defensive tackle Cassius Marsh (6-3, 275, 4.9) from Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian has made his college decision. It was a tough recruiting battle that came down to Arizona State, Cal, LSU and Oklahoma.
"Cassius committed to LSU about an hour ago," Oaks Christian head coach Bill Redell said. "He liked the coaches and he has relatives in the New Orleans area.
"Cassius went to a game on his visit and he really liked the environment," Redell said. "In the end, Cassius felt like he was a better fit at LSU."
At one time Marsh was verbally committed to Cal, but he felt he needed to check out other schools and in the end after taking trips to Cal, Arizona State and LSU, he decided to the pull the trigger.
LSU gets a player in Marsh, who earlier this month was selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American game.
"It was a dream to play in this game," Marsh said. "All the best players in the nation, over the last ten years have been honored with this and a lot of them are in the NFL now. So it just feels great to be considered that type of player."
"It's awesome," Marsh said. "There have been a lot of great players that have come through Oaks Christian besides the players to play in the Army All-American game. I mean Duke Lemmons who is playing for Florida.
"We have had a lot of great players and to be honored as one of the best from Oaks Christian is huge as well.
"I'm so fired up about going to San Antonio and playing in this game," Marsh said. "Earlier in the month we were up at Cal and Lache Seastrunk and Gabe King all those ballers, they were all up there with a lot of other US Army All-Americans. One guy Nick Forbes, he will be playing for the east team so all the west were talking trash to the east. I am just fired up to get to play in that game and try and make a difference."
