A Look at the Roster in Stars

National Signing Day 2015 has come and gone. Marshall made a nice push late and ended up finishing second in CUSA behind only Florida Atlantic. The Herd finished less than 50 total points behind the Owls, with one unranked player still to be rated, Reese Wooten.

The class was loaded with talent on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. Reggie Rogers a wide receiver, and Von Davis a cornerback were the two highest rated players in the class. Antonio Howard and Levi Brown were both also a part of the highest rated new Herd players of the season.

Howard was a late flip from West Virginia. Howard had long been a commitment to the rival in state school, but Doc Holliday and his staff was able to flip him to the Herd at the 11th hour.

There has been a lot of talk recently regarding players rankings and stars, and how important they can be in 2015. In the past, it was common for a large number of lower rated players to scoot through the cracks, however, as recruiting becomes more and more involved year round now, typically the ratings matter a little bit more.

In saying that, how does Marshall’s current roster break down in regards to four stars, three stars, two stars, and unrated players?

The 2015 class was made up of 11 three star players, 13 two star players, and one unrated player.

The Herd staff hit the southern states hard as usual. Marshall ended up snagging 11 players from the state of Florida, and 5 from the state of Georgia.
