ESPN.com ran a preview today of each C-USA football team heading into spring practice. This is what they had to say about Marshall:
Marshall Thundering Herd
Spring practice starts: TBA
Spring game: TBA
What to watch:
New head coach Doc Holliday said his immediate concern is the kicking game after Craig Ratanamorn graduated and with backup Tyler Warner struggling. Warner will have a chance to win the job in the spring, but freshman Justin Haig will be the favorite when he arrives in the fall.
When Darius Marshall left early for the NFL, it opened up the running back competition between Martin Ward and Terrell Edwards. Former coach Mark Snyder was high on both players, but they’ll have to impress their new coach with a star running back coming in August.
After Cody Slate went down with injury, Antavious Wilson emerged as the Thundering Herd’s go-to receiver. He should see plenty of action in Marshall’s stretch offense, but the Herd will need to develop more options, including Aaron Dobson, Lee Smith and Charles Walker.
