Iman Marshall chooses USC over Michigan

The nation's top cornerback chose USC over Michigan.

After Michigan earned two commitments in within a few minutes, this decision didn't go the Wolverines' way.

Five-star prospect Iman Marshall (Long Beach, California), the class of 2015's top cornerback, has committed to USC over Michigan, Florida State, and LSU, he announced in a music video released by Bleacher Report.

USC was the leader for Marshall's services pretty much the entire process, though Michigan had some early contact with him under Brady Hoke's regime. Things started to heat up a bit significant when Jim Harbaugh was hired as the new head coach in Ann Arbor.

Marshall said that if Harbaugh was hired he would be willing to give Michigan a second look and perhaps take an official visit to Ann Arbor, which they were able to schedule for Jan. 19. His visit included ice-skating at Yost Arena and hanging out with Michigan players Freddy Canteen and Jabrill Peppers.

The visit went well enough to where an in-home visit with Marshall took place last week that also was a success. His father told Sam Webb from Scout.com that "he would have no problem sending his son to Michigan."
