Texas Tech transfer quarterback Henry Colombi bound for Marshall

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Marshall has found their presumptive starter at quarterback for the 2022 season. Former Texas Tech signal caller Henry Colombi announced his commitment to join the Thundering Herd Sunday afternoon.

Colombi played in 13 games over two seasons as a backup for the Red Raiders. He completed 65 percent of his throws and passed for 2,356 yards with 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Colombi was 2-0 as a starter against West Virginia.

Prior to arriving in Lubbock, Colombi appeared in eleven games at Utah State in 2018 and 2019.

George Washington High School graduate Grant Wells started the last two seasons for the Thundering Herd. Earlier this month, he transferred to Virginia Tech. Three quarterbacks have been signed for Marshall’s recruiting Class of 2022. That group includes Cole Pennington, the son of Marshall legend Chad Pennington.

Marshall went 7-6 in Charles Huff’s first season leading the program.
