Future USC defensive back Iman Marshall explains video commitment

Long Beach Poly defensive back Iman Marshall explains his signing day announcement video

Long Beach Poly defensive back Iman Marshall made the most of the signing day spotlight Wednesday by committing to USC – twice.

About 30 minutes before his scheduled live announcement on ESPNU, Bleacher Report released a video it produced that ended with Marshall announcing for the Trojans.

He then went on national television to put on a USC hat.

“I tried to stir it up a little bit,” Marshall said. “You want to put your own flavor into it.”

Marshall said the video was shot over a three-day span last month and had six possible endings -- which included commitments to Florida State, Louisiana State, Michigan, Notre Dame, UCLA and USC.

The video was finalized Wednesday morning, he said.

Marshall, 6 feet 2 and 200 pounds, is the top-rated cornerback in 2015 by Rivals and Scout.
