Class of 2011 Chicago Brooks star George Marshall, who rates as one of the top prospects in the 2011 class, enjoyed an unofficial visit to the campus of the University of Wisconsin over the weekend.

Marshall, a highly talented 6'0" point guard, has been a starter for Chicago Brooks since his freshman year. He easily rates as one of the top prospects in a loaded Illinois Class of 2011, and has already been offered by the likes of DePaul, Illinois State and Xavier to name a few.

Marshall enjoyed his visit to Madison, Wisconsin and said, ďIt was good I met with Bo Ryan and all the other coaches I watched them practice, then I went to the football game with Coach Howard Moore, and then we came back and took a tour of the school. It gave me a good feeling of the school, the coaching staff, and the environment. This year they didnít have a midnight madness. It was just their first practice, and I was there for a day."

Marshall continues to see the list of schools actively taking an interest in recruiting him grow with Stanford, Wake Forest, Arizona, Arizona State, Harvard, Iowa, and Tennessee all among a long list of schools taking notice.

Marshall does not plan on taking any more campus visits for now as the high school season is approaching fast. He is focused on once again leading Chicago Brooks, a team that figures to be one of the top teams in the state of Illinois. Brooks will once again feature a great deal of 2011 basketball talent including Marshall, Mike Powell, Jr., and 6'6" twin posts Keith and Kevin Gray among others.
