After visit to UCF, Mike Fleurizard committed to Marshall 

By Jason Lieser

Dwyer defensive tackle Mike Fleurizard was rumored to be a Marshall commit and now it’s solidified.

Fleurizard was deciding between Central Florida and Marshall. After visiting UCF this weekend, he informed Dwyer coach Jack Daniels he intends to sign with the Thundering Herd on Wednesday.

Fleurizard (6-1, 285, No. 41 on The Big Board) had 35 tackles as a senior, including 11 sacks.

He is Marshall’s fourth confirmed commit from this area. The school also has commitments from Boca Raton quarterback Eddie Sullivan and Pahokee wide receiver Fred Pickett. Glades Central safety Travis Bell committed to Marshall, too, but later said he was equally interested in signing with West Virginia.

All commitments are non-binding. No player is locked into a school until he signs a national letter of intent. The first day seniors can sign is Feb. 3, national signing day.
