Dinwiddie (VA) defensive end Corey Marshall ‘s weekend visit to the University of Michigan may be the last college visit he makes before making a college choice. Marshall, a 6-1, 255-pound rising senior, is considering five finalists.

“In no particular order, I’m considering West Virginia, Virginia Tech, UVa, Tennessee and Michigan,” Marshall said. “I’m starting to narrow it down further.”

Marshall reflected on his latest college visit.

“Michigan was great,” he said. “We went a day in advance. When we got there, they took us to the academic department, which is something I haven’t seen anywhere else. I felt really good about the first day. I talked to players. I talked to a lot of different people. Michigan’s social atmosphere is good. I feel I could fit in there.”

He also discussed the in-state finalists.

“UVa, first off, just has a great coaching staff,” Marshall said. “I just about shut it down with those guys because I had such a great connection with Al Groh and I felt like the connection wasn’t there when Coach Groh left. I’m so glad I didn’t shut the door when he left. Coach London and those guys really showed me what they have to offer.

“What can I say about Virginia Tech? Virginia Tech has been so stable throughout this process and in the years before that. The social environment is nice. I consider it a great school.”

So where will the Dinwiddie star go from here?

“I’m going to get a general sense, get a good feel from some of the people closer to me,” Marshall said. “I’m going to take in some opinions. I’m going to gather information. I’m going to keep the lines of information open with my recruiting coaches, just in case I decide I want to go to a camp or two to check things out.

“I’m going to give myself some room to not rush things. I’m just collecting information. I don’t want to be too hasty. Maybe I’ll have a decision in a couple weeks to a month.”
