Byron Marshall, Top 2012 California RB, Offered By USC

Byron Marshall is one of the few standout running backs in the 2012 recruiting class. The San Jose product from Valley Christian has been offered by nearly every major Pac-12 school and is likely to stay West Coast.

Marshall reported he did pick up a crucial offer yesterday from the USC Trojans. It's puzzling why USC has decided to offer two running backs like Marshall and KeiVarae Russell after already accepting the offers of two others. Lane Kiffin seems to be very close to waddling into oversigning territory with these offers.

In either case, because USC is USC, Marshall will probably have the Trojans very much factored into his decision-making.  I would suspect based on earlier reports that Arizona State (where his brother Cameron currently starts), the two local Bay Area teams (Cal and Stanford, and Marshall just recently visited Cal ($)) are all being factored in by Marshall, and now USC are teams very much in the mix to land Marshall as their back of the year.
