Marshall Snags Commit from SC WR

National Signing Day is closing in quickly across the country. This upcoming week will be the final weekend for schools to host official visitors in hopes of landing recruits which will help them become better as a program.

Marshall will receive a visit this weekend from Wide Receiver/Safety Leron Carn. Carn also happens to be the most recent commitment to the Marshall program.

Carn has been interested in the Herd since early December. His lead recruiter is Marshall wide receiver coach Mike Furrey. Furrey, the former wide receiver of the Detroit Lions and a couple other NFL teams, has put together a very good wide receiving corp since his arrival at Marshall two seasons ago.

Carn expects to add to that list of wide outs, unless of course, defensive coordinator Chuck Heater is able to steal his services and place him on the defensive side of the ball. Carn expects to play wide receiver. He did say that he played outside linebacker and corner in high school.

Carn stands at 6’3”, and weighs 214 pounds. His excellent size, paired with his speed (reported 4.43, forty time) and athleticism should make him a big time player no matter which position he ends up playing.

I asked Carn what type of wide receiver he felt that he was, who did he play like. He said, “I am the type of player who goes and gets it and makes a big play. Like Mike Wallace and the true legend, Randy Moss.”

Carn is doing well in the classroom, but did mention that he will most likely be a non qualifier, but is prepared to put in the work to be great in all aspects.

Carn said simply, “I want to be known at Marshall.” The tall wide out should fit in as a very nice target for which ever Herd quarterback wins the job the next two years. That job of course gets under way hot and heavy in just a couple months. The competitors, Gunnar Holcombe, Cole Garvin, Chase Litton and Michael Birdsong.

Carn is the 18th player to commit to the Herd for the recruiting class of 2015.

Stay tuned to for further updates as they come in.
