 Derrek Pitts, North Carolina State, Player News

  Marshall players were asked Monday to name a player that they couldn't wait to see in a game scenario this week. As it turned out, the answers were the same whether asking offensive or defensive players. That player? Strong safety Derrek Pitts, who is listed on the depth chart as a starter for the Thundering Herd's opener Saturday against Eastern Kentucky. As teammates pointed out, Pitts is listed as a starter for good reason. "He's just been flying around, he's been aggressive - a ballhawk," Marshall senior defensive back Nazeeh Johnson said. "I want to see him come down here and make some plays."

Johnson has the benefit of being in the same position room as Pitts, which means they get to break down film of opponents and themselves each day. However, the truest compliments come from those on the offensive side of the ball, who say the 6-foot, 187-pound Dunbar native is an absolutely nightmare to face in practice. "He's able to cover the field so well," Marshall running back Brenden Knox said. "He's shown that through camp and stuff - his ability to cover from sideline to sideline and cover a lot of ground. That's really difficult to do in the position he's at. I feel like he's excelled at that and shown it consistently over practice." - Charleston Gazette

  Marshall's secondary is getting a top-tier talent with some in-state flavor, it appears. On Wednesday, Marshall athletic director Mike Hamrick confirmed that former West Virginia University defensive back and South Charleston standout Derrek Pitts has been admitted and is enrolled at Marshall University this summer. The news of Pitts' enrollment was first reported by MetroNews. "Pitts is enrolled," Hamrick said by phone while traveling from Washington. "He is admitted and enrolled in class." Questions surrounding Pitts' immediate eligibility with the Herd were not known, but Pitts has three years to play two seasons while having an available redshirt year as well.

If forced to sit out the 2019 season under NCAA transfer rules, Pitts will still have two seasons left, starting in 2020. When Pitts committed and signed with West Virginia in the Class of 2017, many around the state rejoiced because the state was able to keep one of its top prospects from going out of state for school. Pitts was heralded as the 23rd-best safety overall in the class and had several offers from Power 5 programs. - Charleston Gazette-Mail
