Marshall All-American OL Cain Madden to transfer

Marshall second team All-American guard Cain Madden announced Wednesday that he has entered the transfer portal.

Madden has one year of eligibility remaining, granted by the NCAA to all athletes last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. He’s the 11th player from last season’s team to transfer after the Thundering Herd fired head coach Doc Holliday in January after 11 years.

“I am genuinely grateful for the five years at Marshall where I have been able to grow and cultivate my skills both on and off the field,” Madden posted to Twitter.

Madden started nine games last season, earning a second team All-American nod from The Associated Press.

Pro Football Focus rates Madden the top overall right guard in the country.
