The Herd lands Ohio Lineman

The "Buckeye State" is loaded with lineman this season, now the Thundering Herd has dipped into the deep pool of talent and pulled out a lineman of their own.

Another Ohio lineman is now off the board, Strongsville (Ohio.) offensive lineman Chad Schofield (6-3, 322, 5.3) has committed to Marshall over an offer from Miami (Ohio.)

"I called coach Gobell and coach Snyder up and said that I wanted to be part of the Herd," Schofield said. "Marshall was just the right place for me. I like the people there, the coaching staff and the city. Huntington is on the rise and is growing everyday and I want to be a part of it.

Schofield participated in the U.S. Army All-American Comine in January, at the Alamomdome in San Antonio, Texas. He also had received a verbal offer from Pittsburgh.

Schofield is the second known commit for the Marshall class of 2006, joining Trevor Marcum.
