Clinton Van Horn, a 6’6, 300 pound offensive lineman from Woodrow Wilson High School in Beckley WV has verbally committed to Marshall. Woodrow Wilson is the same high school that produced former Thundering Herd and Pittsburgh Steelers center Doug Legursky.
Van Horn, a AAA all state first team selection in 2010, had an official visit to Marshall last weekend. He chose the Herd over Albany, Cornell, Holy Cross and Georgetown.
At this time it is not known if Van Horn will be a full scholarship player, preferred walk on, or grey shirt candidate. He does not have any eligibility issues.
