Earlier today former Marshall University defensive tackle Marques Aiken announced via Twitter that he has found a new football home with the Cincinnati Bearcats.
A rising senior, Aiken graduated from Marshall in December and left the football program shortly thereafter. As a junior he played a vital role along the Thundering Herds defensive front, starting 10 of 12 games while registering 37 tackles, 6.5 for loss, and two sacks.
At Cincinnati Aiken will be reunited with former Marshall assistant Fred Tate, the Bearcats current defensive line coach. A graduate transfer, Aiken will be eligible to play immediately.
