Rutgers brought in another transfer as offensive lineman Marquis Morris will suit up for the Scarlet Knights in the fall after leaving William & Mary.

The 6-foot-5, 325-pounder will have immediate eligibility after coming from the FCS level but will start out as a walk-on with the opportunity to earn a football scholarship.

Morris will have four years of eligibility left as he took a redshirt as a true freshman at William & Mary.

Morris will reunite with a familiar face as his high school football coach for a few years at Bergen Catholic in New Jersey was Nunzio Campanile, the tight ends coach for the Scarlet Knights.

“I trusted him in high school and won a state championship under coach Nunzio in high school,” Morris told 247Sports.com. “Trusting him was big in the process and I feel like we could win it all with him and (head coach Greg) Schiano.”

Earlier this year, Rutgers added four Power Five transfers to its roster — defensive lineman Ireland Burke (Boston College), wide receiver Aron Cruickshank (Wisconsin), defensive tackle Michael Dwumfour (Michigan) and defensive back Brendoon White (Ohio State).
