Inside Marshall Sports

The mystery recruit

Safety D.J. Hunter, a 2009 Tennessee recruit, is enrolled at Marshall. He will join the football program for spring drills, or so is the word.

His recruitment was getting derailed by UT’s coaching change, and then by charges in January 2009 that he shot a 15-year-old in the face with a BB gun in his hometown of Middletown, Ohio. Those charges have just been resolved, I was told a few minutes ago, and he is cleared to join the program.

I’ll try to get a walk-on vs. scholarship status report.
