The most recent commitment from Michigan’s 2024 class was Warren Marshall IV. The 6’5” two guard of Brother Rice High School and The Family announced his commitment to Oakland University and longtime head coach Greg Kampe. 

The commitment comes after Marshall took a couple visits to the in-state school over the past few months. The first visit was back in May which the senior said, “It was exciting, and introduced me to the campus…my parents and I spent some time talking with Coach Kampe and some of the staff.” He then took his official visit the week before making his commitment. “The official and seeing a team practice along with things like seeing what the coaches, staff, and university offer for players, it wasn’t a hard decision.” 

“Coach Kampe is a big reason,” Marshall led off with why he picked Oakland University. “His communication style of being direct and transparent was something my parents and I appreciated. He kept it one hundred percent honest on both visits and told me what to expect coming in as a freshman, also the player development was another thing for me since my goal is to play professionally after college.”

Along with the coaches and player development was the success of some of their past players. “I believe Oakland truly develops their players to the next level as shown by Kendrick Nunn, Jamal Cain and Jalen Moore, to name a few.”

While staying in Michigan was not a main factor in the decision for Marshall, academic advising staff, current players, unique degree programs, in addition to the previous reasons, sealed the decision for him. “We couldn’t deny it is the right fit for me.” He chose Oakland over his other offers coming from Central Michigan, Detroit Mercy, Grand Valley State, and Wayne State.
