Mike Boynton and his staff took another step toward completing Oklahoma State’s 2023-24 hoops roster last week with the addition of Jacksonville transfer center Mike Marsh.
Marsh started his career at junior college USC-Salkehatchie before transferring to Dodge City Community College and then spending the past two years in Jacksonville. Marsh spoke with PFB this weekend about his journey to Stillwater and committing to OSU.
PFB: Why Oklahoma State?
Marsh: “I chose Oklahoma State because more of the tradition of how they play. I chose Oklahoma State because of the relationship that I have built with the coaches over time.”
PFB: It kind of happened quietly. Can you take us through the process? How did OSU get in contact with you?
Marsh: “The way I got a contract with OSU was me and my mom, we decided what will be the ultimate best idea for us to do instead of going back to Jacksonville. We were just like, I need to go somewhere where I can play and that they play like my playstyle. I’ve was talking to them just a little bit just because my assistant [Trevor Deloach] at Jacksonville, he knows them. I was talking with them a little bit and then every day, I just began to build a stronger relationship. Coach Mike Boynton, he was calling me every day and stuff like that. I felt cared about, and I just said I think this is it.”
