‘Huskers to reportedly add ex-Bama back

Mike Marrow

After stops at Alabama and Eastern Michigan, Mike Marrow is apparently about to add a third notch to his collegiate bedpost.

By way of the Lincoln Journal Star, NBC’s Toledo affiliate WNWO-TV is reporting that the well-traveled running back is transferring to Nebraska.

The station’s source on this one is impeccable as Marrow’s father Vince Marrow confirmed the news.  The elder Marrow also happens to be a member of the Cornhuskers’ coaching staff, hired recently by head coach Bo Pelini as a grad assistant.

Marrow was a three-star member of Alabama’s 2009 recruiting class, but Nick Saban, who coached Marrow’s father at Toledo, confirmed in September of 2010 that the Toledo, Ohio, native was transferring due to “personal issues, family issues“.

After leaving the Tide, Marrow ended up at Eastern Michigan.  The TV station reports that Marrow will take his finals at EMU next week and will then head to Lincoln, where he will reportedly be eligible to play immediately.  As noted by the Journal Star, it’s unclear whether he’ll come in as a scholarship player or as a walk-on.

In addition to the Cornhuskers, Marrow had also drawn interest from Michigan, Michigan State, Kansas State and Tennessee.
