Marshall Football: A.J. Addison Commits to Herd

Marshall filled a glaring hole in its 2014 recruiting class yesterday when Fork Union Military Academy offensive/defensive lineman A.J. Addison committed to the Thundering Herd.
Senior offensive lineman, Alex Schooler, Jordan Jeffries, Garret Scott, and Gage Niemeyer are graduating from Marshall this year, necessitating an infusion of new talent in the trenches.

In high school, Addison was a three year starter at left tackle. First at Caroline High School before spending his junior and senior seasons with Fredericksburgh (Va.) Christian School. As a senior, Addison was heavily recruited by Virginia, but decided to attend Fork Union in order to concentrate on his academics.

Since enrolling at Fork Union, the 6-foot-7, 290 lbs., offensive tackle has picked up scholarship offers from a number of FCS schools and Sun Belt Conference member Georgia State. According to an article by 247 Sports, Addison was also receiving interest from Clemson and Oklahoma.

As a prep school recruit, Addison can enroll at Marshall for the spring semester, but he has to wait until national signing day (February 5th) to sign a letter of intent.
