As a nominee, Marshall's height and position will be considered for one of the 24 spots on the final 2003 McDonald's All-American squad that will compete in the 26th anniversary McDonald's All-American basketball game.
The All-American game will be played March 26 in Cleveland, Ohio at the Gund Arena, home of the WNBA Cleveland Rockers and the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers, and will be broadcast line on ESPN at 7 p.m.
