WYOMING, Ohio -- Wyoming junior quarterback Andrew Marty verbally committed to play at Miami University on Tuesday night, according to Wyoming football coach Aaron Hancock. He's the area's fourth college football commitment in the 2017 class.

“I could not be happier to announce that I have committed to play football at Miami University,” Marty tweeted Tuesday night. “I am blessed to have received so much support from my family, coaches, teammates and friends.”

Marty, who is 6 feet 4 and 215 pounds, also had offers that included Toledo, Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan.

Hancock said Miami is a “perfect fit” for Marty.

“He loves everything about Miami and is extremely excited to be a part of the Miami program,” Hancock said.

The RedHawks were the first program to offer Marty back in January.

“Andrew is a heck of an athlete at the quarterback position, but his greatest strength is his ability to lead,” Hancock said. “He has great decision-making ability and loves competing. His competitiveness is contagious.”

Marty threw for 1,801 yards and 18 touchdowns his sophomore season. He appeared in three games as a junior before he suffered an injury.

“Marty has a very smooth delivery,” director Mark Porter said. “He is a very good athlete for his size and makes great decisions with the ball.”

National Signing Day is February 2017.
