Class of 2011 Chicago Brooks star George Marshall has given a verbal commitment to play his college basketball for head coach Bo Ryan, and the University of Wisconsin. Marshall ranks as one of the top Class of 2011 basketball prospects in the state of Illinois.

Marshall, a 5'11" point guard, has been a starter for Chicago Brooks since his freshman year. Marshall is a superb floor leader who combines a strong handle, with excellent passing and decision-making skills, and an ability to knock down shots with range. Marshall is a savvy and experienced player who excels with his steady and consistent play.

I just felt it was a good balance of academics and basketball in which I thought I could achieve my goals. The environment is exciting. Its a basketball school and Coach Bo Ryan is a great coach. I feel I will reach my full potential there, and I have developed a good relationship with Howard Moore, said Marshall.

Marshall felt like the time was right to make a commitment. I just felt now was the right time. I reviewed everything, and had a good feeling about the school, and I didnt feel a need to wait, said Marshall.

Marshall joins a 2011 Wisconsin recruiting class that already includes 6'7" Devon Hodges of Bolingbrook.

Marshall, and his Chicago Brooks teammates will be in action again tomorrow when they take on Wayne Blackshear (Louisville), and Chicago Morgan Park in Chicago Public League Red-South action.
