This is the image for the news article titled Five Mavs Ink Letters-Of-Intent On National Signing DayFive Marshall Maverick football student-athletes confirmed their decisions to play college football during the annual National Signing Day ceremony held Wednesday in the Gloria McCoy Learning Center at Marshall High School.

Mav seniors, wide receiver Tahj Washington (University of Memphis), offensive lineman Christian Hood (Houston Baptist University), linebacker Brevin Randle (Stephen F. Austin State University), wide receiver Dekendrick Bender (Southern Arkansas University) and safety Marcus Bledsoe (Louisiana College) inked their national letters-of-intent to continue their education and play college football Wednesday.

Although he officially signed his letter-of-intent with Memphis during the early signing period in December, Washington, the District 9-5A MVP this past season with the Mavs, was also a part of Wednesday’s signing day festivities with his fellow teammates.

Marshall Athletic Director/Head Football Coach Jake Griedl indicated that more Mavs could commit or sign with colleges in coming weeks, as National Signing Day is only the first day that recruits can sign their official letter-of-intent.

Another Marshall senior from last season, safety Champ Mathis, signed with Texas A&M-Commerce Wednesday. Mathis played with the Mavs the last two seasons but has transferred to DeSoto High School. Champ is the son of former Mavs coach Claude Mathis, who accepted the head coaching position at DeSoto last month.
