University of Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh is doing whatever he can to convince five-star recruit, and #1 ranked cornerback Iman Marshall that becoming a Wolverine is what would be in his best interest. This includes making the trip out west to meet with the highly touted prospect.
Harbaugh, according to Long Beach Poly athletic director, Bob Shock, made the trip to California and then visited with Marshall at his high school on Monday afternoon. Below is a picture that Marshall sent from his Twitter account showing the meeting.

Marshall made an official visit to Michigan just 8 days ago on January 19th and then made a visit to LSU this past weekend. He has also made visits to Notre Dame and Florida State. Harbaugh seems to be the main draw for Marshall when considering Michigan, in fact, when asked what he liked best, Marshall’s response was, “the networking and the new coaching hire.”
USC has been considered the favorite to land Marshall for some time now, but with signing day only a week away, he truly seems to be considering coming to play for the maize and blue, and Harbaugh.
If Michigan were to land Marshall, it would be the second year in a row that they were able to sign the #1 ranked cornerback coming out of high school in the country. Last year they came away with Jabrill Peppers. Peppers reportedly talked with Marshall when he visited campus last week, and told him that he (Peppers) would be moving over to safety for the upcoming season. Does this free up a spot for Marshall? Wolverine fans have their fingers crossed.
