Herd picks up Kentucky QB

One of Kentucky's top athletes committed to the Marshall Thundering Herd last week. Adam Wing felt comfortable enough with the C-USA program to make the call.

One of Kentucky's top athletes committed to the Marshall Thundering Herd last week. Adam Wing felt comfortable enough with the C-USA program to make the call.

Last season Rowan County went 10-2 behind the great play of Adam Wing. Wing had 1730 yards and 13 touchdowns through the air. He also rushed for 561 yards and 15 more touchdowns. Late in the season he picked up an offer from Marshall and has now cast his lot with the Herd.

"I realized that Marshall makes me feel like I'm right at home. I fit in well with them," said Wing.

So why go with Marshall at this point?

"I love the way the coaching staff treats me. I know that Marshall has great fan support and it's awesome to be given the opportunity to be playing D-1 ball," he continued.

Wing contacted tight ends coach Phil Ratliff and told him about his decision.

"I called Coach Ratliff on the phone and when I told him he was just excited. He was ready for me to put on the pads tomorrow," he said.

Wing is also a standout basketball player for Rowan County (14.4 points, 8.5 rebounds and 40 percent from three-point range) leading them to the state championship game. Will he play basketball for Marshall?

"If I was given the opportunity to play ball at Marshall and the two coaching staffs could work it out, yes I would play ball," he said. "Growing up as a kid, basketball has always been my first love. Then football came into the picture. I love both sports," he said.

Wing also considered Kentucky and Western Kentucky, but Wing is finished with recruiting.

"I'm solid with my decision."
