Marshall to Welcome Four Prospects

December has arrived, and that means recruits begin to arrive on college campuses around the country for their official visits. That is the case this weekend in Huntington, as Doc Holliday, Jajuan Seider, Bill Legg and company welcome at least four prospective student athletes to campus.

How will their visits go? Will any of them commit, or leave with an offer? Stay tuned to Herdhaven.com for further updates, in the meantime, its that time again. It is time for another segment of "Herd Radar."

Marshall welcomes at least four athletes to campus this weekend. Those prospects are made up by three junior college players, and one highly ranked high school defensive end.

I will catch up with the recruits prior to their arrival, and again next week to see how the visits went.

Here we go, time to get started:

Arnold Blackmon – Blackmon is a junior college defense end. In Holliday's search for a rush defensive end, Blackmon would appear to be one that could fit that bill. Blackmon currently plays at Navarro Community College. He is originally from Bellaire, Texas. Blackmon is 6'3" tall, and weighs 235 pounds. He is currently unranked but is receiving attention from multiple schools. Through nine football games this season, Blackmon had 45 total tackles. However, the most eye opening stats are the 22 tackles for loss in those 9 games, he also added 6 sacks.

Jaylen Hunter – Hunter is a junior college offensive lineman from Arizona Western Community College. Hunter was a two star guad out of high school. Hunter is 6'5" tall and weighs 285 pounds. He currently has multiple offers, some of which are from USF, UCF, Washington State and Syracuse.

Johnny Holton – Holton is an interesting prospect. It was apparent as the season progressed that the Herd would need a replacement for Aaron Dobson as a wide receiver on the outside. Holton very well could fill that spot. Holton is 6'3" tall which puts him at the same size as Dobson. Holton is an unranked player at this time. He is originally from Coral Gables, Florida. Holton's numbers show his ability to make the explosive play. Of his first 17 early season catches, 7 went for touchdowns.

Mike Love – Love is the only high school recruit visiting campus this weekend. Love is a highly regarded defensive end from Clearwater, Florida. He was recently offered by Marshall. He attends Countryside High School. Love is 6'3", 210 pounds. He is rated three stars and is the 85th ranked defensive end in the country at this time. Love currently has offers from multiple schools, including BCS schools Arizona, West Virginia and Nebraska.
