Marshall transferred from Texas A&M to Ole Miss in late December.
Marshall was a major recruit. Listed at 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, Marshall was a five-star prospect and the No. 3 WR in the 2022 signing class, according to 247 Sports.
Marshall had 11 catches for 108 yards in six games with the Aggies last season. He was among a few Aggies players suspended in October over a locker room incident.
Lane Kiffin hit the transfer portal hard over the offseason, as has been typical for him. The addition of Marshall apparently did not work out for the team.
