Marshall’s fall camp roll call goes horribly awry with 10 signees missing



Marshall already has what appears to be a brutal 2011 schedule with games against West Virginia, Louisville, Virginia Tech, Central Florida, Houston and Southern Miss.

Now, they’ll have to go about it with a much thinner roster.

According to the Charleston Gazette, 10 of Marshall’s 29 players who signed a Letter of Intent to play for the Herd this year were absent from the preseason camp roster. Some of the no-shows are thought to be academic casualties. They are:

  • receiver Chris Alston
  • running back Steward Butler
  • receiver Levern Jacobs
  • receiver Conelius Jones (left the program after spring)
  • lineman Jamar Lewter
  • athlete DeAndre Reaves
  • defensive back Deontae West
  • defensive end Robert Mincey
  • JUCO lineman Colin Munro
  • JUCO defensive end Terry Franklin

Marshall was already operating through spring practices on a depleted roster, with head coach Doc Holliday working with as little as 40-50 players at times because of graduation and injuries.

    Led by a con artist, Marshall – the dopey little brother to WVU – gets exactly what it deserves for the school and its fans.

    for being WVU’s little brother, they’ve produced some better NFL products lately, just sayin
    Bradshaw NYG, Moss retired Pennington TV booth, Leftwich backup n Pitt, no WVU players really standout right now?

    uh, don’t know if you write your own headlines, but that’d be ROLL call, not role call… I know literacy isn’t really your thing, but still…

    fyi all but munro and franklin were expected, that’s why there are two greyshirts and two non-qualifiers from last year joining the squad as first year players that count against the 25 limit, as well as steve dillon who originally signed with usc (the real one).
