Marsh claims five early offers

Compton (Calif.) Dominguez is loaded with players in its 2012 class and one on the list is defensive back Alphonso Marsh, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound prospect who claims five early offers.
Marsh said UCLA, Washington, SMU, New Mexico and Colorado State have offered and that Colorado, Tennessee and others are showing interest.
Early on, there are no favorites but Marsh recently took an unofficial visit to UCLA and liked a lot of what he saw on that campus.
"There aren't any favorites yet," Marsh said. "I took my first unofficial visit to UCLA and I want to take more trips.
"I liked how they treated me there. It was a really nice campus, great facilities and a really nice weight room. I noticed how well they treat their players and basically it felt good, like it was something brand new."
When Marsh was over at UCLA, he said he spent a good amount of time with new offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Mike Johnson among many other coaches.
The Bruins have struggled in recent years but Marsh said that will not have a negative influence on his decision-making process.
"It doesn't have a big influence on me," Marsh said. "I'm more concerned with whatever is best for me and where I can see myself is what's best for me. I'm thinking about waiting it out to see who else recruits me."
Marsh has visited UCLA and now wants to take more visits in the coming months. The Dominguez standout said he'd really like to see Washington, Oregon and New Mexico before making his college decision.
