Marshall's junior quarterback Chase Litton announced Sunday he will be foregoing his senior season and is entering the 2018 NFL Draft.

“This was an extremely tough decision,” Litton said in a release from Marshall University. “Marshall has a ton of talent on both sides of the ball coming back for 2018, and there’s no doubt this coming season will be a special one. There will be high expectations for my brothers, and I will be their No. 1 fan.”

Litton started 34 games in three seasons with the Herd leaves as one of the most successful passers in school history.

Litton is fourth on Marshall's all-time list in completions (727), fifth in passing yards (8,332) and fourth in touchdowns (72).

“We thank Chase for his contribution to Marshall Football and wish him the best of luck moving forward," head coach Doc Holliday said in a release.

Litton splashed onto the scene his freshman year, passing for 2,605 yards and 23 touchdowns as he helped guide Marshall to a 10-4 record and a St. Petersburg Bowl win.

In 2017, Litton recorded his first 3,000-yard season, passing for 3,115 yards and a career-high 25 touchdowns. Marshall finished the year 8-5 and won the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

On Dec. 21, Marshall's offensive coordinator Bill Leg announced he was resigning from his position.
