Brooks sophomore star point guard George Marshall, currently the No. 10 ranked player in the Class of 2011 Hoops Report player rankings, made his second unofficial visit to DePaul Wednesday night. At the end of the night, Marshall was offered by coach Jerry Wainwright, according to George Marshall's father, George, Sr.

Marshall enjoyed his visit to DePaul and clearly has the Blue Demons in his sights. According to George, Sr., the DePaul offer was his first "official" scholarship offer since Illinois State offered the 6-0 guard. Marshall, at the very least, is a bonafide mid-major prospect who the Hoops Report believes can play at a higher level. Marshall was on an unofficial visit at Northwestern last weekend, while Marquette and Xavier have been actively recruiting the versatile point guard as well. Those schools, however, have not yet extended an offer.

DePaul, though, certainly has a leg up as Marshall previously knew and had established a relationship with assistant coach Tracy Webster while he was coaching at Kentucky. "There is some familiarity with Tracy," George, Sr. says. "He enjoyed his visit."

While he's a true point guard, Marshall's offensive game is versatile in that he can create off the dribble and has really shown the ability to shoot from the perimeter. He combines those attributes with an impressive feel for the game and court presence. He helped lead Brooks to regional and sectional titles last March before falling to Leo in the Class 3A supersectional.
