Marshall is a four-star recruit and the No. 48 overall prospect in the 2024 class, according to 247 Sports. The 6-foot-11, 310-pound center from Kell High School chose Auburn over SEC foes Georgia, LSU and Missouri, among other teams.

"The reason I chose Auburn was simple because it felt like the place to be and it felt like I have the best opportunity for me to take my game to the next level and reaching my fullest potential. “That's simply why I could see myself there and also the college-feel. It felt like home. The people were nice and welcoming.” Marshall told 247 Sports.

Marshall's signing gives Auburn the No. 8 class in 2024, and he is one of two recruits that Auburn has committed over the next two classes with the other being guard Aden Holloway, the No. 31 overall prospect in the 2023 class.
