Center Commits To Herd
That position is along the offensive line, and especially at center. This season, the depth chart is made up of walk on's that have moved up the depth charts and have earned playing time. Chris Jasperse, and Channing Smith, both either former or current walk ons, are manning the top two spots in the rotation. Jasperse started every game last season, but has been pushed by Smith this spring. So much so, that Jasperse was actually moved to right guard midway through camp.
On March 9th, Cody Collins visited Marshall University and took in a spring practice. Shortly after the practice, Collins met with Marshall Coach Doc Holliday. Holliday offered, and Collins accepted. Prior to that point, Collins' lead recruiter for the Herd was Tony Peterson.
I caught up with Collins recently and briefly discussed his recruitment.
Collins is a 6'2", 275 pound center from Kettering, Ohio. He currently attends Archbishop Alter High School. He will be a senior this season.
Collins said he chose Marshall primarily for the school and the opportunity for early playing time. As was mentioned earlier, depth is an issue at center at this point.
Collins also has offers from Ball State, Ohio, Toledo, Western Kentucky and Bowling Green.
Marshall has a long history of good centers. John Wade, Jason Starkey, Chad Schofield, and Brian Leggett are some of the more recent success stories. Wade and Starkey, of course, played in the National Football League.
