Marshall lands first RB for 2013

Senior running back Tony Pittman (Hampton, Va./Phoebus) is on board with the Thundering Herd after committing to Marshall Sunday, multiple sources report.

Pittman, a 5-foot-11, 195-pounder, claims to have other scholarship offers from Cincinnati, Miami-FL, Northern Illinois, Old Dominion, Ole Miss, Purdue and Syracuse.

He rushed for 1,784 yards and 22 touchdowns this fall.

Marshall's Class of 2013 now sits at 18 with the addition of Pittman.
