Five-star cornerback Iman Marshall made his latest trip to USC on Wednesday night, seeing the Trojans in their first scrimmage of fall camp at the L.A. Coliseum.
"I liked the intensity and brotherhood I saw out there," Marshall said.

The highly coveted prospect from nearby Long Beach (Calif.) Poly has been by campus numerous times and attended countless games the last three years, so there were plenty of familiar faces on the field, including former high school teammate John "Juju" Smith. He also got a chance to speak with cornerbacks Adoree' Jackson and Kevon Seymour, but neither has broken out the hard-sell pitch -- at least not yet.
"They know I'm going to make the decision that's best for my future," Marshall said. "They made their own decisions. It would be nice to play with those guys again, but I've got to figure out whether USC is the right fit me."
Jackson, a true freshman who is sidelined with a foot injury, spent a considerable portion of the scrimmage chatting with Marshall's father. The conversation, according to Tony Marshall, centered around Jackson's time at USC thus far, as the Marshall family aims to get an understanding of the college life.
"All those guys -- Juju, Rahshead (Johnson) and Adoree' -- seem to be enjoying themselves," Tony said.
The staff and Marshall have not gotten into too many specifics, knowing there will be a time for that further down the road in his recruitment. Marshall, who also dropped by UCLA's camp in San Bernardino earlier in the week, intends to announce his commitment on National Signing Day.
"We have not really talked specifics," Tony said. "Eventually, we'll get into the schematics and where Iman fits."
Marshall said he will be keeping a close eye on the Trojans in the first season under head coach Steve Sarkisian.
"We'll see how things play out this fall," Marshall said.
