Herd inks 28 in 2014 recruiting class
HUNTINGTON — Marshall’s 2014 football recruiting class, announced Wednesday, features 28 players, including four mid-year enrollees and two who are already enrolled as transfers.
“I honestly think this class is as good as we’ve signed here, and I wouldn’t trade it for anybody else’s,” Thundering Herd coach Doc Holliday said in a release. “I’m glad we got them. We’ve added a lot of great talent to what we have coming back for 2014.”
Various recruiting services rank Marshall's 2014 recruiting class, which features 15 players from Florida and Georgia, as the top class in Conference USA by a wide margin and 247sports.com ranks it as the top class among the non-power conferences.
Marshall landed 11 three-star recruits, according to Rivals.com. No school who will play in C-USA in 2014 had more than four.
