HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Fifth-year Marshall men’s golf head coach Matt Grobe announced the signing of Brad Plaziak (Atlanta) on Monday.
“We are so excited to have Brad join our team,” Grobe said. “He has had a very distinguished junior career and should make an easy transition to collegiate golf. We lost 3 seniors from last year’s team, so we will need Brad to come in and help provide depth immediately. Brad is a wonderful kid and will be a great addition to the Marshall Family. I can’t wait to get him on campus and watch him compete during his collegiate career.”
Plaziak joins the Herd as the No. 21 ranked golfer in the state of Georgia and No. 14 in Georgia for the class of 2017, according to Junior Golf Scoreboard.

State-wise, Plaziak finished at ninth at the Georgia PGA Junior Tournament, was a member of the Hurricane Junior Tour and the Southeast Junior Tour and was named the Atlanta Junior Fall 2012 Player of the Year.
The newcomer also boasts a top-15 finish at the 2017 Callaway AJGA Junior Classic, top half finishes at the 2017 Junior Jones Cup Invitational and 2017 Junior Heritage Invitational, earning a spot at the 2016 Junior Amateur Qualifier playoff, an eighth place finish at the 2016 Innisbrook Christmas Classic, a finish at sixth at the 2016 Joe Cheves Invitational Tournament and a top-20 finish at the 2016 Toyota Music City AJGA.
