Class of 2011 Chicago Brooks star George Marshall has now added a Big 10 scholarship offer from the University of Wisconsin to his collection. Marshall rates as one of the top Class of 2011 basketball prospects in the state of Illinois.

Marshall, a 5'11" point guard, is a superb floor leader who excels with his ability to run a team, and also with his ability to drill shots with range and accuracy. Marshall has been the starting point guard for Chicago Brooks since his freshman year, and spent the spring and summer starring for the 16-U Illinois Warriors on the travel team circuit.

Marshall made an unofficial visit to Wisconsin, his second in the past month, and took in their game against IPFW. “I went to their game today against IPFW, and after the game I talked with Howard Moore, and he talked about the school’s academics, and their expectations on the court. Then I talked with hed coach Bo Ryan, and he said how he likes my game, and how they would like to have me. They then offered me a scholarship,” said Marshall.

Marshall went on to note, “It means a lot to pick up a Big Ten offer, especially from a winning program like Wisconsin, and a coach like Bo Ryan,”

Marshall has long been a favorite among college recruiters, and has also been offered by the likes of DePaul, Baylor, Illinois State, Xavier, Ohio, and now Wisconsin.

This coming season, Marshall will again lead a strong Chicago Brooks team that also features 6'6" twin Class of 2011 posts Keith and Kevin Gray, and 2011 backcourt star Mike Powell, Jr.
