Isaiah Marshall is one of the top quarterback recruits in his class, and the Detroit native announced that he received an offer from Michigan football.

What makes that news notable is that his class is 2024.

Marshall is a seventh grader, and is reportedly the youngest player to ever receive an offer from Michigan.

He has a Big Ten pedigree as well.

His father Brian Marshall, who is handling his recruitment and managing his social media at this young age, was an All-American high school player, and a running back at Northwestern.

His mother Yolanda played basketball at DePaul, so he is the son of two college athletes.

According to his father, Jim Harbaugh reviewed Isaiah Marshall's film and gave some critiques, before extending an offer.

From The Detroit News:

“It happened this morning when Coach Harbaugh came to Southfield (A&T) and he reviewed a lot of his tape, broke it down and critiqued it and made the offer,” pointed out Brian Marshall of Harbaugh giving the offer to Isaiah.

At 5-foot-8, 155 pounds, Marshall has pretty good size for his age, and his film is impressive.

The Marshall family announced the offer earlier today on social media as well:

In reality, true "scholarship offers" aren't made until the summer before a player's senior season, so plenty can change over the next few years, but he'll be one to watch going forward.
