Speedster sees offers climb to eight

Three-star running back Cameron Marshall (5-11, 200, 4.4) from San Jose (Calif.) Valley Christian has the speed and explosiveness that is much desired by D-I schools. Marshall has the ability to score every time he touches the ball and what makes him even more valuable is his ability to get the tough yard.
On the recruiting front, Marshall currently has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, California, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, Utah and Northwestern.
"I'm wide open with all the schools right now," Marshall said. "I have not set up any official visits yet."
"At this point it's pretty early to say what schools I may visit officially," Marshall said. "I'm waiting on a couple more offers to weigh all of my options."
Though Marshall is very pleased with how things are going on the recruiting trail. He's still hoping to hear from more schools before he makes a decision.
"Hopefully all of the Pac-10 schools and even some of the schools on the East Coast like Ohio State and LSU will contact me," Marshall said. "I'm going to wait until my senior year is over before making a commitment."
"I'm really looking for a program that I fit into well, the coaches and the team," Marshall said. "Also a good environment, and definitely a good education. Location is not going to be a factor."
"Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State and Northwestern are pretty much the most consistent schools," Marshall said. "All the schools are recruiting me at running back."
When it comes down to making his college commitment, you can rest assured he will have good counsel.
"I always look to my mother and father for the most advice because they're the closest to me, but my coach plays an important role too," Marshall said. "He's done a pretty good job of getting my name out there to other programs."
Also an outstanding student, Marshall carries a 3.4 GPA and scored a qualifying 1290 SAT. His current bench is 325.
Marshall earned all-section honors on both sides of the ball as a running back and linebacker for his junior season.
Marshall earned a spot on the California Preseason Top 100 team for the class of 2009 landing as the Golden State's 56th ranked prospect at any position.
