Earlier in the day Marshall received a Signed Letter of Intent from four star lineback Jaquan Yulee.
Could the Herd get a second four star signee on the year.
That answer came a little over two hours later when four star quarterback/wide receiver Xavier Gaines sent in his LOI to the Marshall coaching staff.
Gaines had offers from nearly every P5 school in the country, before choosing the Herd.
Below is an inside look at what the commitment means to the Marshall program
2016 Signed LOI
Gaines is a four star quarterback who originally was tabbed to go to Auburn. He is the 18th rated quarterback in the country but is also an excellent athlete who could play wide receiver. Getting a commitment from this caliber of a player is huge for the program and the future of the Thundering Herd offense whether at quarterback or wide receiver.
