His nickname is Biggie but maybe Iman Marshall should go by Big-Time.
The cornerback from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly has not only emerged as one of the top players in California's 2015 class but his offer list is starting to prove it as well.
USC offered the Poly standout on Wednesday amid a flurry of offers across the country for the Trojans and it's definitely a big one for Marshall, who looked good recently at the Gamebreakers Challenge in Newbury Park, Calif.
"They just told me, Lane Kiffin told me, that they were looking at film and they liked what they saw and he just offered off of that film," Marshall said.
"I heard a lot from their recruiting coaches. I had some guys from SC come to me and tell me how they love my film and how they wanted some Poly guys back into SC."
Oregon State, UCLA, Washington and Washington State have also offered Marshall, who helped lead Long Beach Poly after a dismal start to the state championship game last season, but USC probably sticks out more.
According to a source, the Trojans were always out front for Marshall and now that the offer has arrived it only solidifies USC high on his list.
The 6-foot, 175-pound prospect who is also hearing from major programs across the country including the upper echelon of SEC teams said it's too early to make any decisions but there's no doubt USC offering is important to him.
The Trojans are high on his list but there are still many considerations to make.
"It's huge," Marshall said.
"Of course because it's SC but I still want to keep my options open because I'm still young. It's still early in the process and I still have a way to go so I don't want to choose early. I want to keep everything open.
"Especially at my age and in my grade not too many people get that offer from SC."
