Three weeks after being summarily dismissed by Washington, Marcus Farria has found a new football home.

By way of the Tacoma News-Tribune, Farria’s name now appears on the online roster for the Murray State Racers.  Normally a transfer from the FBS to the FCS would have immediate eligibility; however, the News-Tribune writes that “Farria’s eligibility status is unclear.”

Farria was dismissed by first-year UW head coach Chris Petersen earlier this month for violating unspecified team rules.

Despite playing in just seven games last season as a true freshman, Farria totaled 2.5 sacks, which was tied for fifth on the team.

A three-star member of UW’s 2013 recruiting class, Farria was rated as the No, 23 weakside defensive end in the country and the No. 7 player at any position in the state of Arizona. As for clues to a potential landing spot, Farria received offers coming out of high school from, among others, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Notre Dame, Tennessee and Utah.
