Utah State showing interest in John Marshall

John Marshall

Parsing The WAC recently mentioned that Utah State is showing interest in Junior to be John Marshall from Desert Vista High School in Arizona.

According to John’s own website, he was rated as one of the top 50 prospects in the nation for the class of 2013 at the Official Freshman All-American Camp (Fab Frosh Camp) in 2009.

Jeff Meadows from Hoops Report.com had the following to say about Marshall when he was selected to the Arizona preseason freshman all-state team upon entering high school in 2009:

Starting with the guards, John Marshall is a steady PG who is quarterbacking the Desert Vista H.S varsity team. Marshall has been among the top 5 players in his class in the state since the 6th grade. Marshall isn’t very quick but he has descent speed. Marshall’s biggest attributes are his strength, size 6’0 175lbs and his basketball I.Q.

John completed his Sophomore campaign this year. According to several game recaps Marshall has a tendency to come up big in crunch time. In a game against he hit the game winning basket in overtime driving to the hoop and scoring over a 6’7″ defender. Another recap mentioned him hitting two clutch late free throws to pull his team within a point before forcing a turnover on the in-bounds play. Yet another mentioned another clutch drive to the hoop down the stretch that fouled out a key player on the opposing team.

Here are a few highlight videos I found on youtube:
