Chase Litton commits to Marshall football for 2015

Former Wharton quarterback Chase Litton has orally committed to play football at Marshall, Litton announced Wednesday morning.

The commitment is the latest step in an up-and-down recruiting cycle for one of Tampa Bay’s top passers.

The 6-foot-6, three-star prospect threw for almost 8,000 yards in his four-year career with the Wildcats. He passed for 54 touchdowns, rushed for 10 more and accounted for more than 2,500 yards of offense as a senior last fall. Litton is also a standout basketball player and was a second-team all-county selection this winter.

He initially committed to USF but decommitted over the summer. He did not sign with a program on national signing day and told the Tampa Bay Times last month that he would attend the Atlanta Sports Academy, a prep school that would help him improve his academics and athletics and reclassify him as a recruit for the class of 2015. Wednesday, he said via Twitter that he planned to return to Tampa and start at Marshall in January 2015.

Oral commitments are non-binding until recruits sign letters of intent.
