It took just one visit to Marshall University for tight end Ryan Yuracheck to make up his mind he wanted to play for the Thundering Herd.
Yurachek, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound prospect from Myrtle Beach, S.C., verbally committed to Marshall on Tuesday, announcing his plans on Twitter. Yurachek is the third verbal The Herd has received in the last five days.
Proud to announce that I am officially committed to Marshall. Thank you to my teammates and coaches. Most of all my family. #thunderingherd
