Marshall pulls defender from FIU

Senior defensive end Marcus Gilchrist (Port Charlotte, Fla.) has switched his commitment from Florida International to Marshall following an official visit to Huntington, W.V., multiple sources report.

He originally picked the Golden Panthers in December following an official visit. Kentucky, Eastern Michigan, Middle Tennessee Purdue and Western Michigan also offered the 6-foot-3, 240-pound senior.

Doc Holliday and his staff at Marshall have once again done well in the Sunshine State. About half of the Thundering Herd's class is made up of Florida prospect.
