Pro Football Focus notes that USC senior CB Iman Marshall (ankle) is having a breakout season for the Trojans.
There has been one player that has allowed fewer yards per snap in coverage than Marshall's 0.44: Michigan's David Long (0.18). The former consensus five-star prospect has had an up-and-down career with the Trojans, but he really has put things together for USC even in a disappointing year for them. "Marshall steadily continued his ascension over the next two seasons, recording overall grades of 76.4 and 71.0 as a sophomore and junior, respectively," they write. "As a senior in 2018, Marshall has raised the bar with a career-best 77.8 overall grade." At 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, Marshall is going to intrigue the heck out of teams, and the analytical folks are going to love those numbers. Nov 12 - 8:35 PM

USC senior CB Iman Marshall (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Cal.

Marshall (6'1/175) tweaked his ankle during last Saturday's win over Oregon State. While he did not practice early in the week, the senior corner was able to take part on Thursday. Trojans HC Clay Helton has been pounding the table for Marshall to receive All-American consideration of late, calling him "one of the best corners in the country." In nine games this season, he has registered 31 tackles with five passes defended. No interceptions as of yet, but the lack of that statistical flash should not necessarily be viewed as a demerit on his level of play.

USC HC Clay Helton said in April that senior CB Iman Marshall was having "by far his best camp."

"It’s a very shut-up-and-work mentality, a blue-collar mentality," Helton said. "I have not seen the guy take one rep off, not been lazy one rep." This is quite the encouraging review, as Marshall, himself, admitted in the spring that he was disappointed with his work during the 2017 season due to what he termed "[a] lack of effort." After intercepting six passes over the course of his first two years in the program, the 6-foot-1, 194-pounder failed to log a pick for the past campaign, though he did post 51 tackles and 10 passes defended. Marshall believes the down year (he also battled injury) was a "wake-up call." He could have leapt for the draft over the winter, but we view his decision to return to USC to shore up some clear issues as absolutely the right call.

USC junior CB Iman Marshall will return for the 2018 season.

Marshall (6'1/194) joins linebackers Porter Gustin and Cameron Smith in foregoing the 2018 NFL Draft. The Trojans will be working in a number of new faces on offense -- they've lost Sam Darnold, Ronald Jones and Deontay Burnett to the NFL -- but the defense is in a bit more of a stable place. Marshall registered 51 tackles and 10 passes defended during the 2017 campaign. While he failed to log an interception, the junior has six picks in total for his time with the Trojans.

USC HC Clay Helton said that junior CB Iman Marshall (knee) could be used in a "limited role" during Saturday's game against Colorado.

Marshall has been sidelined for the past two games by a sprained knee sustained against Notre Dame on October 21. Said Helton, "He's starting to look like his old self. I think if needed I think he could go out there and help us." Isaiah Langley has been filling in with Marshall out of action and will probably continue to see a fair amount of work in rotation while the Trojans look to shake off the junior's rust.

Although USC true freshman CB Iman Marshall has been prone to penalties, he's "had an excellent freshman season," USC beat writer Michael Lev observes.

On the season, the true freshman leads USC with four pass breakups, while ranking fourth on the Trojans with 42 tackles. The former five-star prospect has drawn flags four times in the last four games, with two pass interference and two defensive holding calls. Lev notes that Marshall "is a physical player by nature, and his coaches don’t want him to change."

NFL Media ranks USC true freshman CB Iman Marshall as the No. 15 impact freshmen in the nation.

"Marshall's versatility will help him see the field right away," Bryan Fischer wrote. "He's best suited to play safety, but likely will play as a nickel corner first while filling in quite nicely for the departed Nelson Agholor on kick returns." USC, of course, is one of college football's most aggressive users of two-way players. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound is extremely skilled, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Trojan coaches found him some part-time offensive work.

High school CB Iman Marshall, the No. 4 player in the ESPN 300, committed to USC.

"Michigan was a strong contender, but I'm a Trojan for life," he said. "I grew up a Trojan. And to have the opportunity to play in The Coliseum, why wouldn't you take that?" In signing Marshall, USC head coach Steve Sarkisian has essentially duplicated the feat of landing stud CB Adoree' Jackson in the 2014 class. ESPN compares Marshall to Darqueze Dennard. "Both are highly competitive, well-built corners who excel at press coverage and are reactive athletes around the football," the site added. Marshall possesses ideal size at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, and boasts top-shelf athletic chops.
Wed, Feb 4, 2015 06:29:00 PM's RecruitingNation predicts No. 4 overall recruit CB Iman Marshall will choose USC over a spate of suitors.

"The confidence in Marshall selecting USC has dwindled since the beginning of his process and now it appears as though any of his finalists could actually have the best shot at landing the top cornerback in the country," noted the site. "With visits to Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame and Oregon under his belt, Marshall will choose between those and the local schools as his finalists. While the bright lights of Los Angeles will be a selling point for both UCLA and USC, the success on the field at Florida State and Oregon -- and especially the flash of the Ducks -- could be enough to pry Marshall out of the state." Marshall already has NFL scouts' attention. He possesses ideal size at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, and boasts top-shelf athletic chops. "Marshall is tall, athletic and highly skilled," according to his scouting report. "He has a great deal of upside with his frame and natural abilities. Has good ball skills that might garner a look at rece
