Marshall OT Clint Van Horn granted sixth year of eligibility


Signing day was three weeks ago, but Marshall celebrated one of its biggest additions for the 2016 season on Tuesday.

The program announced offensive tackle Clint Van Horn has received clearance to return for a sixth season this fall after missing the majority of 2015 due to injury. Van Horn was a Lombardi and Outland trophy Watch List member over the summer.

“Getting Clint back this year is such a tremendous boost for the entire program,” said Marshall coach Doc Holliday in a statement. “He is one of our leaders and truly embodies what it means to be a Marshall student-athlete.”

Van Horn said he was moved to tears upon learning the news.
