Marshall has extended an offer to an in-state lineman and the Thundering Herd may have some competition before too long.
While the Herd was first to offer Martinsburg (W.V.) offensive tackle Eugene German, the rising senior lineman recently picked up an offer from Charlotte and has interest from others.
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound tackle plans to camp at Penn State, Pitt and Duke this summer. Several coaches have stopped by Martinsburg this spring so German appears to be on the recruiting board at a few places.
"I went to Rutgers for their spring game and I went to Duke for their spring game as well," he explained. "I just loved both of those schools.
"At Rutgers I liked the fan base. I really liked that. With Duke it was mostly the campus that I liked."
German said he doesn't plan to make a decision anytime soon. In fact, he wants to wait until after his senior season to select a school.
