Paul Pierce 2.0: Rayah Marshall is “Lady Truth” (CaliforniaPreps, 6/10/2019)
Rayah is too humble to brag on it but she recently was named The Press Telegram Player of the Year and was a Top 5 All USA-Today Player candidate.
She did something historic when she garnered athletic scholarship offers from programs like Arizona, UCLA, UCONN, and Oregon among many others at a very young age, younger than any other girl prospect has ever done in the past!
ESPN says this of Rayah, “Her game is coast-to-coast in transition; she gets respect to the arc; brings a Candace Parker-type versatility.”

Moving forward, Marshall sees room for improvement in her game despite all the big numbers she put up this season. She’s working on shooting off the dribble, a tool she thinks will be invaluable as a tall guard. Marshall also wants to improve on the defensive end of the court.
“Just playing low and better as an athlete. If I position myself to be low I can get in passing lanes a lot quicker, I can jump a lot higher and faster instead of players getting around me,” Marshall said. “I can prevent a lot of that happening by staying low.”
