Iman Marshall has been one of the most visible elite high school recruits in recent memory, showing up to virtually every event this spring and rarely sitting out.
It was the same last week at UCLA's 7-on-7 team camp, where Marshall and Long Beach Poly were a dominant force for most of the afternoon. Marshall shined on both offense and defense, playing a variety of roles including receiver, safety, and his preferred cornerback spot.
At all times, he was shadowed by UCLA coaches, who had the chance to watch and evaluate Marshall up close. After the camp, Marshall spent a good deal of time with Coach Jim Mora, who talked with Marshall and his father.
"I've got a great relationship with Coach Mora," Marshall said. "He talks to me about everything, not just football. I'm really comfortable with the whole coaching staff."
Marshall has been on campus several times already this year, visiting for a few spring practices earlier in the year as well as a few unofficial visits. He said the opportunity to work out in front of the coaches, though, was a good one.
"I think it just gives me an idea of what playing for them could be like," Marshall said. "It was a good experience being coached up by (Coach Demetrice Martin). I had a good time."
Marshall, who didn't end up stopping by UCLA for the Elite Camp on Wednesday, said he has no definite plans for future unofficial visits to UCLA, but "because it's so close, I can just come up any time."
In terms of official visits, it sounds as if he'll more than likely take them to out-of-state schools, with two likely recipients being Notre Dame and Florida State.
As for the rest of his visit schedule and decision timeline, Marshall is still undecided.
"I need to talk it over with my parents, and just figure out what our recruiting process is going to be like," Marshall said. "That'll be when we figure out what visits we're going to take."
