HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Marshall football coach Doc Holliday said Thursday he and his staff will be heading into West Virginia high schools later this month.
“We’re going to hit every school in West Virginia,” Holliday said on MetroNews Talkline. “We’re going to get around and see all of these high school coaches. Because if there is a player in West Virginia that’s good enough to help us win then we’re going to make sure we know where he is and make sure we’re not missing anybody.”
Holliday said he plans the West Virginia visits to take place Jan. 16-17.
“One thing I know about those West Virginia players they’ve got big hearts, so if they’re out there we want to find them,” Holliday said.
Holliday and the Herd are coming off a Military Bowl victory versus Maryland and a 10-win season.
The coach said his 2014 recruiting class is nearly full. He said he needs a few more defensive backs and some linemen.
