UNH lands quarterback

Brody McAndrew, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound quarterback from Neshaminy High School in Langhorne, Pa., gave a verbal commitment to the University of New Hampshire on Sunday.

McAndrew, who will be a senior next season, received a scholarship offer from UNH — his first offer — earlier this month and visited UNH on Thursday, one day before he visited Holy Cross.

“I really liked it up there,” McAndrew said. “What really stood out to me was the college atmosphere. It’s kind of all by itself, but there are stores and everything you need right there. It’s an hour to Boston, the shore is nine miles away and the mountains are not far away. I really wanted to commit right then and there, but I went home and talked it over with my parents. Everyone in my family really liked it.”

McAndrew, 17, completed 112 of 206 passes for 1,486 yards and 16 touchdowns (12 interceptions) as a junior. He connected on 136 of 232 passes for 1,874 yards and 17 TDs with four interceptions during his sophomore season.

“I’d say in my sophomore and junior years I was more of a drop-back, Pro-Style QB, but I’m working on becoming a dual threat and I definitely think I have the speed for that,” he said. “I’m definitely not someone who will slide. I’m going to put my shoulder down.”

McAndrew said he will also play defensive end for Neshaminy next season.

“One of the main reasons I decided to commit right now was the coaching staff,” he said. “I love the coaches there. A lot of coaches jump around, but at UNH I know the coaches aren’t going to leave.

“I’m looking forward to coming up there and breaking all of Coach (Ricky) Santos’ records.”
