Marshall Football: King to Transfer, Hoskins Snubbed by NFL Combine

Two notes out of Marshall's football program today. Both involving players who will not be wearing a Thundering Herd uniform in 2014.

Marshall's wide receivers corps lost a member as Jazz King announced via Twitter that he is transferring. King caught five passes for 109 yards and a touchdown during the 2013 season. A rising senior, he will have one year of eligibility remaining at his yet to be determined new school.

The participant list for this months NFL Combine was released today and the name of Marshall's Gator Hoskins was nowhere to be found. Despite leading his position nationally with 15 touchdown receptions in 2013, Hoskins was not among the 22 tight ends invited to February's scouting combine.

Standing only 6-foot-1, Hoskins is shorter than a prototypical NFL tight end. At last months Senior Bowl, he was used as an H-Back, lining up in the backfield, flanking the offensive line, and split out wide. Typically held in March, Hoskins will have an opportunity to workout in front of NFL scouts at Marshall's pro day.
