YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Former Girard and Youngtown State University Quarterback Mark Waid tells Sports Team 27 that he is committing to Bentley University, a Division II school located in Waltham, Massachusetts.
He entered the NCAA transfer portal back in October.
Waid played in six games during the 2020 spring season and finished with 527 yards passing, 283 yards rushing and five total touchdowns.
Waid started four games at quarterback in the spring but lost the starting job to red-shirt freshman Demeatric Crenshaw this past fall. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.
