JUCO WR Enjoys Visit
Junior College wide out Johnny Holton visited Marshall this past weekend. The 6'3", 190 pound Holton has been playing at the College of Dupage in Illinois. Holton is a big, fast, outside receiver who could step in and play immediately with the likes of Davonte Allen and Craig Wilkins being the only outside receivers with significant playing time under their belts, and that playing time came in spurts throughout the season.
Holton runs a 4.37 forty yard dash and is interested in some impressive schools.
In addition to Marshall, Holton will visit Colorado State, Florida Atlantic, New Mexico and, the University of South Alabama.
Holton's lead recruiters at Marshall are Geep Wade and Gerad Parker. Parker is the Herd's wide receiver coach.
When asked about his visit, Holton said, "It was great, nice atmosphere . The coaches are all about the players, meaning as hard as they are going to be on you in football , it's going to be the same way in the classrooms . The people who love in the town love football."
I asked Holton where Marshall stood at this time on his list, and he said simply, "at the top."
Holton does have visits he plans to make in January. He is a May graduate who would only have two years of eligibility. He plans to make his commitment known in January.
