Defensive back Iman Marshall to stay for senior season

The veteran leader of the Trojan backfield will be a welcome source of experience in 2018

NCAA Football: Stanford at Southern California Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Junior defensive back Iman Marshall announced on Friday that he will be staying at USC for his senior season in 2018.

Marshall has been a three year starter and will be a key part to Clancy Pendergast’s defense heading into next season. Marshall’s experience and leadership will be a strong source of positivity for the 2018 team.

After a left knee injury suffered during USC’s game against Notre Dame on Oct. 21, Marshall had a lackluster back end of the season, and was not suspected to be a high round draft pick if he declared this year. Staying another year will more than likely help his NFL Draft stock rise for 2019 if he is able to stay healthy.

In his time as a Trojan Marshall has recorded six interceptions, 27 passes defended, and 109 solo tackles.
