USC football: Steve Sarkisian eager to evaluate Iman Marshall
When USC opens training camp on Saturday, much of the attention will be on Iman Marshall.
The incoming freshman from Long Beach Poly is listed as a cornerback.
Asked Friday if the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Marshall would play cornerback or safety, Coach Steve Sarkisian said Marshall could play either position.
“We’ve got to see what best fits what we need,” Sarkisian said, adding, “I haven’t seen him cover really elite guys yet.
“I saw him in high school, but I haven’t seen him cover JuJu [Smith] or Isaac [Whitney] or these guys. We’ll find out.”
Senior Kevon Seymour and sophomore Adoree’ Jackson are returning starters at cornerback.
