  • In 2016, USC CB Iman Marshall played 749 snaps and recorded an overall grade of 80.8 which ranks No. 3 among all returning Pac-12 cornerbacks.
  • From Week 6 on last season, Marshall ranked No. 16 among all corners in terms of his coverage grade. In that span, he allowed 1.11 yards per coverage snap, and his 59.9 passer rating when targeted was tops among all returning Pac-12 corners who played at least 200 or more snaps in coverage during that time.
  • Checking in at 6-foot, 200 pounds, Marshall isn't afraid to get physical. His 14.0 tackles per missed tackle were No. 2 among all returning Pac-12 defensive backs, and he also recorded six run stops on the season.
  • With high expectations for the Trojans after their strong finish in 2016, Marshall will have pressure on him with the task of replacing now-Tennessee Titan Adoree’ Jackson as the team’s No. 1 cornerback.
