2017 Miami RedHawks Football Recruiting: DE David Marsh flips from Ball State, commits to RedHawks

Miami now has two two-star defensive ends.

After committing to Ball State in May, Bishop Chatard (IN) defensive end David Marsh flipped his commitment to Miami on Friday. The two MAC schools, in addition to Bowling Green, are Marsh's only offers to this point.

Marsh, standing at 6'4" and 240 pounds, is a two-star prospect per 247Sports and is the second such defensive end to commit to the RedHawks, joining Logan Speyer. The commit brings Miami up to five on defense and 10 total so far.

"I chose Miami because it felt exactly like home," Marsh said. "Everyone treated me perfect and I know these guys I'll play with will be my best friends for life. It was tough to choose between the schools but I went to visit all three and loved Miami the most. The new addition to the football field and the campus wowed me. It was outstanding and the school is very prestigious. That's what set me off and made me love Miami."

By looking at his junior film courtesy of Hudl, you can see that Marsh is pretty raw, but he offers the length and athleticism that Chuck Martin's staff likes and having him and Speyer as redshirts could be great for their development as the future bookends of Miami's defense. With 10 commits in the bag already at this point, it will be interesting to see which direction the RedHawks go next on the recruiting trail.
