CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Emanuel Beal, a wide receiver from Powder Springs, Ga., announced his commitment to Marshall via his Twitter account Tuesday.
Beal is listed with three stars by ESPN.com, which ranks him 144th among the nation's receivers. The site's scouting report says, "Beal is a quality WR prospect that should attract the attention of many mid to upper mid-level BCS schools."
He had an impressive list of schools reportedly offering him, including those from the ACC, Big 12 and SEC. Also notable: Vanderbilt and Yale offered, indicating he should easily be eligible as a freshman. One tweet from a friend indicated he was leaning toward Central Florida at one point.
National signing day is Feb. 5.
