Defensive End Commitment

Vinny Curry was one of the best defensive ends to ever play at Marshall. However, before Curry there were great players such as the late Johnathan Goodard, Paul Toviessi, BJ Cohen, Ron Puggi, and John Duncan. This is just a few of the dominant ends the Herd has had in the past couple decades.

This year Marshall has a good group of ends, but is in need for one of them to step up. Alex Bazzie is a senior, Ra'Shawde Myers is a junior. Others who should impact the position are Joe Massaquoi, JUCO transfer Arnold Blackmon, and Armonze Daniel. They also graduate a starter, and team leader Jeremiah Taylor.

One of the positions the Herd coaching staff has been looking hard at on the recruiting trail is the end position. The staff secured a verbal commitment from a big prospect at the end position this past week. Herdhaven.com was able to catch up with the commitment for an interview.

Ryan Bee is currently a two star defensive end from Perrysville, Ohio. Bee has all the measurables to be a dominating FBS player in years to come. Of all the aforementioned linemen, Bee is most like Paul Toviessi. The former Denver Bronco draftee was a tall, lanky end who dominated the MAC. Toviessi made a splash when he arrived on campus after being a one time University of Florida recruit, when he said he would break all of B.J. Cohen's records.

Toviessi was tall, and so is Ryan Bee. Bee stands 6'7" tall, and weighs 250 pounds. His lead recruiter is former Poca, WV player, Bill Legg. Legg is the offensive coordinator for the Herd. Bee says he expects to play defensive end at the next level.

Currently, Marshall is his only offer. I asked Bee if he had visited the Marshall campus yet, and he said, "Yes, I have visited and I loved it down there. I really liked how the campus wasn't too big since I'm coming from a smaller high school, also really liked all the coaches I met. The all around atmosphere was great."

Bee is looking forward to what should be a solid senior year this upcoming season. Vinny Curry was one of the best defensive ends to ever play at Marshall.
