PITT OFFERS LOCAL BIG MAN
McKeesport's Marshall Progressing (Pittsburgh Sports Report)
The Pittsburgh Panthers are looking to add size in their 2009 recruiting class and coach Jamie Dixon might have to go very far to find some as local 7-footer Zeke Marshall is right in his backyard.
The thin big man runs the floor like a guard, but needs to add weight to his slight frame to bang in the Big East. Marshall has an offer from the Panthers as well as Xavier, Akron, Virginia and Virginia Tech. Several more high major schools are joining the chase after a very impressive performance at the recent King James Shooting Stars Classic.
