Miami Palmetto five-star cornerback Jason Marshall has updated his recruitment.
After putting out a “final three” back in April, which included Alabama, Florida and Clemson, Marshall posted a “top five” on social media Friday. He removed Clemson but added Miami, LSU and Oregon to go along with Alabama and Florida.
Marshall, 6-foot-2, 180-pounds, is rated a five-star recruit, the No. 3 cornerback in the country and the No. 30 overall prospect for the 2021 recruiting cycle by 247Sports Composite Rankings.
He comes off a junior campaign in which he earned Miami Herald All-Dade 8A-6A first-team honors after recording five interceptions, 15 pass breakups, and 44 tackles for the 10-2 Panthers, who made a deep run in the Class 8A state playoffs.
Prior to the updates top schools list, the Gators appeared to be the favorites to land Marshall, but that may have changed.
One of Marshall’s top recruits at UF, Jamar Chaney, is headed to Mississippi State after two years as the Gators assistant director of player personnel. And this definitely caught Marshall’s attention, having expressed his frustration on social media.
Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide have emerged as potential suitors for the five-star cornerback, having logged a 247Sports Crystal Ball on Thursday. Marshall told BamaOnLine that he speaks to the Alabama coaches daily and that it’s a “Dream come true” to be recruited by Saban.
Marshall is a member of the ‘Palmetto Five’, which is a group of five prospects from Palmetto that are under the Miami Hurricanes’ radar. Those players: four-star defensive tackle Savion Collins — who’s committed to UM — five-star defensive tackle Leonard Taylor, four-star safety Corey Collier, three-star wide receiver Brashard Smith and Marshall.
With the Hurricanes being included in Marshall’s updated schools list, that can only mean that UM is surfacing as a potential destination.
