On February 2, four-star running back, Jordan Marshall, announced his top four schools. His finalists are Ohio State, Michigan, Tennessee and Wisconsin. He narrowed down his list of 26 offers to four. On Monday night, he joined me on Instagram Live for an interview to discuss his top four.

Jordan Marshall Interview

Marshall is a 5-foot-11, 193-pound running back from Archbishop Moeller High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. According to 247sports, he is ranked as the No. 7 running back in the country, the No. 2 recruit in Ohio, and the No. 83 overall recruit in the country.

In the interview, Marshall went in depth on each of the four schools in his top four. Before his commitment, which he said he plans on committing “sometime in July,” he plans on attending spring practices for each of the schools, and taking his official visits in June. Below is what Marshall had to say on each of the four schools ahead of his unofficial visits this spring:

OHIO STATE: “It’s really good,” Marshall said. “I mean at first I was a little iffy, I never really grew up an Ohio State fan. Then the more I got to talk to them and the more they were interested in me, it was just really good. It’s like home now there, and I can talk to them about anything. Me and Coach Alford have a great bond and we can talk about anything. But the love they show is really crazy, and I really love that about them being the in-state team.”

MICHIGAN: “Me and Coach Hart are like the same exact person,” Marshall said. “It’s crazy like we just know each other and like know what each other’s going to say. Then obviously it’d be cool because he played there, breaking his records and things like that, but Michigan is very beautiful and great academically, and just a lot of the things I’m looking for in a school kind of reminds me of my high school.”

TENNESSEE: “Tennessee is a little bit different,” Marshall said. “The energy there is always crazy. We went to a basketball game and a football game, and their energy at both of them is crazy. It’s unlike Michigan and unlike Ohio State, and I really do love it there. It’s beautiful there, too.

WISCONSIN: “I have a lot of ties with Coach Fickle and our families are close,” Marshall said. “His boys going to Moeller and me playing with them, I really wanted to keep them in just because there’s something there. And I feel like I could also do great things there with Coach Fickle, and he would always put me in the best position. Then you can argue that that’s RBU, just like you can argue for Michigan being RBU. So it’s a really good program, and just like I said, it has very high expectations for their running back position.”

Marshall is approaching the most intense months of his recruitment, as the spring continues to progress, and the summer will be here quickly. For each of these schools, anybody has a chance, which is why these next few months will be extremely important for them to land one of the best running backs in the country.
