Butler Community College coach Troy Morrell confirmed Monday that James Madison quarterback Billy Cosh has transferred to play for the Grizzlies and is enrolled in school.
Cosh, 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, redshirted at Kansas State in 2010 and was a backup for JMU last season. Word is he’s got a cannon for an arm.
“He was just in a situation where he was unhappy and wanted the chance to play,” Morrell said. “Our offense is a great fit for his his talents … he can really throw the ball. He’s a great fit.”
Cosh, the son of former Kansas State defensive coordinator Chris Cosh, was a three-star recruit out of Arundel (Md.) High School, where he set state career records for passing yards (7,433) and touchdowns (112).
Cosh is the third straight high-profile quarterback transfer to land at Butler, following LSU’s Zach Mettenberger, who transferred from Georgia in 2010, and UConn’s Chandler Whitmer, who transferred from Illinois in 2011.
I thought, even before they landed Cosh, that the Grizzlies had a good shot of being the preseason No. 1 team in the country. He makes them better.
