Currently, Huhn is in possession of seven offers from school from the FBS. Marshall became number seven this past Saturday. They joined six other schools including Louisville, Western Kentucky and Ohio University.

Huhn visited Marshall this past Saturday morning and took in the mornings' practice session. Shortly after practice ended, Coach Doc Holliday offered him a scholarship. Huhn plans to take an official visit to Marshall at a later date. Tony Petersen has been Huhn's lead recruiter up to the point for the Thundering Herd.

Huhn is attracted to Marshall for a few reasons, one of which is if he were to go to Marshall he would be playing Offensive Tackle. He also is familiar with the Marshall program. He "knows it is a program with deep tradition. They have an amazing fan base both local and nation wide."

Huhn says at this point he does not have a school that is in the lead for his services. However, he said, "I would for sure consider going to Marshall, it is a great school."

When asked about what his feelings were when he received that first college offer, Huhn said, "it was the best moment of my life so far, something I Have been dreaming of since I was little was actually coming true.
