Kansas Football Gets Pledge From 2024 QB Ranked Ninth-Best Double Threat Prospect In Nation

National signing day Wednesday may have been pretty quiet for the Kansas football program, but the day that followed was anything but.

Kansas gathered an oral pledge Thursday morning from Class of 2024 quarterback Isaiah Marshall, the Detroit area’s latest notable prospect, to pledge his services to the KU program.

“I know a lot of players on the team who are from this area and that caught my eye,” Marshall told JayhawkSlant.com’s Jon Kirby as he discussed his commitment.

3-star QB ranked #2 dual threat quarterback No. 9 in the country by Rivals.com, Marshall announced his engagement on social media early Thursday morning. According to Kirby, he is the highest ranked QB to commit to KU since the Rivals.com database began tracking, dating back to 2002.

The 6-foot, 195-pound QB attends Southfield A&T High in Southfield, Michigan, just outside of Detroit and made a couple of visits to KU during the 2022 season to check out the schedule. One came for a game and one came during one of KU’s junior days in December.

He told Kirby that the whole vibe around the program won him over and paid particular tribute to linebackers coach Chris Simpson, who was KU’s top recruiter in the area. KU quarterbacks coach Jim Zebrowski, along with offensive coordinator Andy Kotelnicki and, of course, head coach Lance Leipold all played a part in getting Marshall a commitment.

“Coach Simpson is a great guy,” Marshall told Kirby. “He knows my dad and my whole family, so it’s okay. And Coach Simpson spoke to me every week, so it was nice to get comfortable with him. It was a good thing.

Marshall currently has 18 offers from Division I programs, including some big ones like Michigan, Michigan State, Mississippi and more.

“It’s cool because I feel like I made the right decision,” Marshall told Kirby of picking Kansas. “I think their offense suits me. I think everything they do suits me. And their offense can put me in the best position. And I feel the coaches are great. I feel like there’s just a good vibe out there.
