Montrell Dobbs, a 5'11, 185 lbs running back from Milford Academy (NY) has switched his verbal commitment to Marshall University. Dobbs gave a verbal pledge to the University of Connecticut in June but had recently re-opened his recruitment. If he can pass through the NCAA clearing house Dobbs might enroll at Marshall in January.
As a senior at Anosia High School (CT), Dobbs accumulated 3,345 rushing yards and 40 touchdowns. Dobbs spent this fall at Milford Academy where he rushed for 1,387 yards and 21 touchdowns.
This will not be Doc Holliday's first commitment from Milford. Current Marshall running back Travon Vann attended the school after leaving Florida. Also, fellow 2012 commitment Levern Jacobs is Dobbs teammate with the Falcons.
