Among the swarm of Oklahoma State commits who visited Stillwater this past week, there were a handful of uncommitted prospects — like Jalen Marshall.
Marshall is a 6-foot-6, 275-pound defensive tackle from Overland Park, Kansas. He is a three-star prospect, ranked 708th in his class, making him the No. 4 player from Kansas.
I spoke with him on Saturday afternoon to recap his visit, his family connection to OSU and his timetable for a commitment.
Marshall Scott: “I guess just to start, what were some of your biggest takeaways from your visit in Stillwater?”
Jalen Marshall: “I feel like I have a connection to Stillwater because my dad was a walk-on there. It was cool. He was like, ‘Yeah, I stayed in those dorms right.’ It’s a cool connection thing that I like.”
MS: “Oh, that’s cool. When did you Dad play here?”
JM: “He only played for one year, but he’s Karl Marshall. I’m pretty sure he graduated in 1994.”
MS: “That’s awesome. I didn’t know that.
“You were there with a lot of OSU commits. How much were they recruiting you during your visit?“
