Byron Marshall lands offer from USC 

August, 8, 2011
ESPNU 150 RB Byron Marshall (San Jose, Calif./Valley Christian) became the second RB USC offered last week.

"To be honest, I never saw it coming because they were barely recruiting me," he said. "Coach [Clay] Helton is the one recruiting me and I talked to him first and then he put coach [Lane] Kiffin on the phone and he told me they were offering a scholarship."

Marshall entered the spring regarded as one of the top backs in the region, but a knee injury that required surgery kept him sidelined during the entire evaluation period and he fell a bit off the radar, although colleges were still very aware of him.
