Madison, Wis. – The Wisconsin football program has lost another player to the transfer portal. According to a report from Jon McNamara, QB Marshall Howe has decided to transfer.

Howe shined near the end of the Wisconsin football program’s spring practices. The former walk-on climbed the depth chart to earn the QB3 spot, beating out Nick Evers and Myles Burkett. Offensive coordinator Phil Longo explained that Howe’s understanding of the offense contributed to his ascension up the depth chart.

“On my board, it says ‘knowledge equals reps,” Longo told reporters. “I’ve learned the hard way – not just as a coach – putting the best athlete out there or the strongest arm out there slows the production of the offense, particularly when you’re installing it for the first time.”

Howe joined the Wisconsin football program as a preferred walk-on in 2022. Out of high school, the 6-foot-1, 194-pound signal caller was a two-star prospect who received interest from Ivy League schools as well as Davison and Eastern Illinois.

Howe spent a year at prep school at Avon Old Farms in Connecticut. During his senior season, the former Badger threw for 2,730 yards, 34 touchdowns, and five interceptions.

Howe did not see any game action during his time in Madison. However, after an impressive spring, he has boosted his stock to potentially land a starting spot at another school.

Wisconsin’s quarterback room now consists of Tanner Mordecai, Braedyn Locke, Nick Evers, Myles Burkett, and Cole LaCrue.
