He is ranked 91st overall in the country, seventh among all running backs, and third-best in Ohio, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. Marshall picked Michigan over several Power Five schools, including his home-state Ohio State and Cincinnati, as well as Michigan State, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.
