Junior defensive back Iman Marshall announced on Friday that he will be staying at USC for his senior season in 2018.
I came to USC three years ago with big expectations for myself and for this university. Want to help bring this University back to the top and feel we got a lot more left to accomplish, time to go and get it! It’s an honor to be a Trojan.

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.
