Ole Miss is usually known for football, but their men’s basketball team got some quality recruits in the frontcourt yesterday.
First, Blytheville (Arkansas) four-star center Rashod Marshall announced his commitment to Ole Miss — for the third time. Marshall (6-foot-9, 215 pounds) is billed as a powerful, old-school low post.
This could be an interesting reheat in the 2023 recruiting cycle.
Rashod Marshall is awesome. A low post presence that combines his undeniable toughness and brute strength with some footwork and touch.
