App State Adds Haskins to Secondary

 

BOONE, N.C. — App State’s football program ­has officially added FBS transfer Marcus Haskins, a defensive back who played at Liberty during the previous two seasons and has totaled 17 interceptions at the collegiate level.
 
A native of St. Paul, Minn., the 6-foot, 185-pound Haskins intercepted one pass as a Liberty starter in 2020 after picking off seven passes as an NJCAA All-American at Iowa Western in 2019 and being named a first-team All-American thanks to his nine interceptions as a redshirt freshman for Division II Concordia-St. Paul in 2018.
 
Haskins started at cornerback and free safety during his time at Liberty.
 
He played in four early season games for the Flames in 2021 and totaled 31 tackles with five passes defended in 15 career games for Liberty. Twenty-six of his tackles were solo stops, highlighted by a high of seven tackles in the 2020 bowl win against Coastal Carolina.
 
After a standout career at East Ridge High School, Haskins intercepted a pass in the first five games of his college career while playing in his home state of Minnesota. He tied a Division II record with seven passes defended (including one interception) in one game and finished that season with 29 passes defended (including 20 breakups) and 41 tackles.
 
He attended Iowa Western, the same program where Mondo Williams played before becoming App State’s starting cornerback in 2016, and intercepted a pass in each of his last five NJCAA games.
