  1. Committed to Wisconsin

  2. Illinois Prep Bullseye named Marshall one of the top 5 players they observed at the Swish 'N Dish Spring Warmup tourney this month in Mequon:

    "After (Wayne) Blackshear, we thought that Marshall was the Fire's second best player in their game versus All-Ohio Red and he was also a vital ingredient in helping the Fire reach the championship in the platinum bracket of the 17-under age division. The bottom line is that Marshall simply did whatever was necessary to help his team win games. When he had to put points on the board he did just that, but he also proved to be equally effective as a playmaker and distributor. Yes, he can still get wild and needs to tone it down at times, but overall he was most solid. Marshall is still finding his niche now that he is with the Fire, but he is already beginning to make a difference. There is no doubt in our mind that he can be an immediate contributor at the University Of Wisconsin."

  3. Marshall will play for a new head coach during his senior season at Brooks, as Chris Head was let go in June.

  4. Marshall reiterated his commitment to Wisconsin yesterday and told Badger247 that he knows a few of the guys who might be in the running for the vacant coaching position (no names though).
