Marshall, of St. Thomas Aquinas High School, is the No. 5 prospect in Kansas according to 247Sports and had offers from 11 Division I schools, including Kansas and Arkansas. He took an official visit to MU on June 25.
The Tigers now have 12 commits in their 2022 class, which 247 ranks No. 15 in the nation. Of those 12 players, six are four-star recruits and six are three-star. The Tigers’ 2021 class — 22 players in all — had two four-stars.
Six in the ’22 class are from Missouri. With the addition of Marshall, seven are from the the St. Louis or Kansas City metro areas. Of those outside of Missouri and Kansas, two are from Texas, and the final two from Georgia and Nevada, respectively.
