Marshall is the top Cornerback in the 2015 class. Not only is he one of the top Cornerback, he is one of the best players in the nation. He moves to top slot in the remaining prospects with interest in Notre Dame.

247Sports considers him the top Cornerback and 6th best player in the country. Rivals also considers him as the top player.

At 6’1″ 195 lbs., he possesses ideal size for a Cornerback. A Cornerback with that size would be extremely valuable in new Notre Dame Defensive Coordinator Brian VanGorder’s scheme. To be more aggressive, Notre Dame will need players like Marshall who can play man-to-man against anyone in the country.

Marshall hails from Long Beach, California. He plays at Poly High School, the same high school of former Notre Dame recruit and current USC Trojan John “JuJu” Smith.

Marshall confirmed that he would take an official visit to South Bend as well as Florida State, LSU, Michigan and Texas or Oklahoma. 

Notre Dame does not have a great history with Long Beach Polytechnic High School. Last year, Notre Dame failed to land Long Beach Poly Safety/Wide Receiver Juju Smith. It is likely that “Biggie” Marshall will select Southern Cal.
