5-star CB Marshall has UM in top 7, talks Junior Day visit

Stefan Adams
Talking to prospects at the Under Armour Miami camp this weekend, a big point of concern for many was the Miami Hurricanes’ ability to win and win big. However, 2021 Miami Palmetto (FL) 5-star CB Jason Marshall doesn’t share that concern.

“Winning or losing doesn’t matter to me,” Marshall said. “It’s more about me having a relationship with the coaches and how they recruit me, how hard they push, all of that.”

As they offered Marshall over two full years ago back in December of 2017, the Miami staff has had every opportunity to build a relationship with Marshall in that span. The Canes were able to get the 6-2 180 pound prospect back on campus again for their Junior Day event in late January, and Marshall gave his take on how that went.

“I was really with coach (Mike) Rumph, and all of the other players that were there,” Marshall said. “He was going over coverages and style of play, and I think I’d fit in. He’s a great coach and I love how he breaks things down.

“He tells me about his history (at Miami) having played there, and coach Banda and coach Manny Diaz will tell me about the defense.”

Marshall has also built a connection with safeties coach Ephraim Banda over the years, and he says Banda’s message has always been consistent.

“Coach Banda was talking to me about staying loyal to one school,” Marshall said, “He likes guys that always show loyalty to their high school or college, he was just preaching loyalty.”

The Hurricanes have invested a ton of time and money to upgrade many of the facilities that surround the program, and Marshall says he’s noticed the effort lately.

“It’s a great indoor,” Marshall said. “I haven’t seen the new dorms yet, hopefully I can see them soon.”

Back in early January, Marshall felt comfortable enough to narrow down his list to a top 7 that he released on Twitter. Miami, Florida, FSU, Georgia, Clemson, Alabama, and LSU all made the cut, and Marshall has visited each of those programs in the past aside from the reigning national champion Tigers. However, LSU DB coach Corey Raymond has helped in getting Marshall to schedule a visit to Baton Rouge in April, and LSU’s head coach has been giving Marshall attention lately as well.

“Coach Raymond has been trying to build a relationship with me, he tells me about the culture there,” Marshall said. “Coach O (Ed Orgeron) has also been talking with me, I love the way he runs his program.”

As a junior in 2019, Marshall continued to develop his considerable talent, landing on the Miami Herald’s All-Dade 8A-6A first-team following his season.

“My season was great, could get better at certain things, but overall great,” Marshall said. “I want to work on my hips, hip flexibility, feet, more of my linework.”

With most every school in the country wanting to bring a high upside prospect like Marshall into their defensive backfield, Marshall felt that it was necessary to narrow his list and focus on a set group of schools in anticipation of a late 2020/early 2021 decision timeline.

“Looking at my top seven that I had dropped, all of them are pretty close,” Marshall said. “I’ll decide sometime after the season, possibly on signing day in December or at the UA game in January.”

What factors will ultimately steer Marshall to his destination?

“The education first off, and then the connection with the coaches.”

Spring recruiting is canceled right now.

No teams are allowed to conduct on or off campus recruiting & no visits can be taken.

That's going to turn summertime recruiting in May-June into free-for-all.

Normally there's a Dead period the last week of June til 3 weeks into July, but I wonder if the NCAA will lift it for this year due to the circumstances we're now in.
 
Just lock in 2 of Jaden Mcburrows, Burns, Dawson, Kevin Knowles, and get their typical out of state CB. I like the Dunn kid thats a legacy.

Shoot your wad with the WV kid and Marshall.

The board seems a bit bigger at cb for us this year. They offered guys like Hallman and Nealy early who can always be fall back options locally.
 
Hey 2020 gotta take the good with the bad

If they are allowed to recruit in may and June---hopefully they will.

I really like Dawson and Knowles, those guys are real deal athletes. I know you've been on Knowles for awhile. That looks to be a great call, i dont really keep up with broward fb.

I would take 3 true CBs though and maybe 6 DBs in total depending on if we take 4 or 5 olineman or 3 or 4 LBs.

Btw Ivins put in a CB for Marshall, was it for UF?

He put it in for VIP
 
Any team this kid commits to will have to hold on for dear life for 9 months. So early commit or not, you stay on him until the ink hits the paper. Any CB worth his weight in gold has to know there is an opportunity to be a full time starter by their sophomore year here and be in the rotation their freshmen year with our thin depth chart.
 
The effect of this virus on sports is insane. As a die-hard fan, this is very boring.
 
I think this "pause" will help the schools that will push the limits with texts, calls , and internet branding. Right now UM should set up a full time e-recruit website where the recuits can view virtual tours, practices, and off campus delights 24/7. Chat rooms would be nice too.........................
