Morgan State’s transfer quarterback has Marshall’s attention

HUNTINGTON, West Virginia — If nothing else, Morgan State comes to Huntington on Saturday with an experienced quarterback, one of those graduate transfers.

Not that Chris Andrews comes from a football factory — Wagner College. But he is a dual-threat left-handed quarterback who has Marshall’s full attention.

Andrews and his Bears (0-1) take on the Thundering Herd in MU’s season opener at Joan C. Edwards Stadium. Kickoff is at 6 p.m., with the game airing on beIN Sports.

“You can tell he’s played,” MU coach Doc Holliday said of Andrews. “He plays with poise, he makes tremendous throws. They’ve got some guys who can run at the receiver position. They’ve got a back who’s not even starting who was a 1,000-yard rusher, player of the year in that conference.”

Holliday referred to Herb Walker Jr., who wasn’t the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference player of the year in 2015, but was offensive player of the week twice. He rushed for 1,408 yards and 15 touchdowns, but missed 2015 with eligibility issues.
