ESPN predicts the commitment for five-star WR Terrace Marshall


Terrace Marshall is the No. 1 wide receiver prospect in the Class of 2018 and, as a result, the intrigue with his recruitment continues into August. With that in mind, Gerry Hamilton and Tom VanHaaren of ESPN recently took the opportunity to project what they believe to be Marshall's final collegiate destination and, in the end, the pair went with the LSU Tigers.

Marshall released a final four of LSU, Texas, Texas A&M and Miami on June 9, and since that time has been on campus in College Station and Baton Rouge. The home-state Tigers are the current prediction, as long as the Tigers offense has an appealing look this season.... The nation's No. 1 ranked wide receiver is set to decide in December before enrolling early.

It does not come as a surprise to see Marshall, who is a top-10 recruit nationally according to the 247Sports composite, landing with the Tigers, simply because of geography. The 6'2, 192-pound wide receiver hails from Bossier City (La.) and the "Crystal Ball" projections provide LSU with a sizable lead in their pursuit of the in-state prospect.

Regardless of where you fall on Marshall in terms of national ranking, he is one of the biggest gets from the state of Louisiana and the worldwide leader is projecting Ed Orgeron to pick up a huge recruiting victory here.
