2023 four-star cornerback Braeden Marshall was originally scheduled to make an official visit to Penn State over the weekend of June 17, but that visit has been changed to a weekend in Pittsburgh for an official visit.
Marshall, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound cornerback from Lake Mary High School in Florida, announced that he will be making an official visit to Pitt on June 16-18, via Twitter. He narrowed an extensive list of 30 offers to a more clean-cut 10 teams last week, including Arkansas, North Carolina, Tennessee, Clemson, Penn State, Miami, Wisconsin, Nebraska, UCF and Pitt.

Marshall’s only other current official visit scheduled is for North Carolina (June 24). With a visit to Pittsburgh last November, he’s seen Pitt once, and his official visit will go a long way in securing one of Pitt’s four-star targets.
Pitt was the first Power Five school to actually offer Marshall last September, receiving the offer after the first game of his junior season at Lake May.
“Coach Salem told me to call him, which I did, and we talked for a while and then he offered,” Marshall told Pittsburgh Sports Now last September. “He said that he liked my skills, liked how I played and they were actually at my game last week against Lake Gibson and said I played very well.
As an integral defensive back on Lake May’s 10-2 season that advanced to the FHSAA Class-8A regional semifinals as a junior, Marshall recorded 28 tackles (13 solo), two tackles for loss, a team-high three interceptions and three passes defended.
247Sports rates Marshall as the 358th-ranked recruit in the class (39th-ranked cornerback and the 70th-ranked recruit from Florida) while Rivals rates him as the 36th-ranked cornerback and the 54th-ranked recruit from Florida.
With Pitt’s penchant for securing a multitude of defensive backs in every class, and worrying about potential fit in the defensive system once the recruits arrive on campus, Marshall would be an excellent addition to the back end.
As a dual-sport athlete at Lake May, excelling on the basketball court, Marshall is a very twitchy, explosive athlete who has the physicality in press coverage to compete for reps in Pitt’s defense early.
Along with Marshall, three-star athlete Rasheem Biles (Pickerington, Ohio), three-star athlete Kahlil Ali (Pennsauken, New Jersey), three-star offensive lineman Zachary Aamland (Princeton, New Jersey) and running back Montravius Lloyd (St. Petersburg, Florida) will be making June 16 visits to Pitt.
