Liggins transfer and more

Army freshman slotback Lonnie Liggins is transferring to Division I-AA Towson, a team source confirmed.

Liggins was a player Army coaches were high on coming out of prep school. But Liggins battled injuries and rushed just nine times for 43 yards in 2009. He scored his first college touchdown on a 17-yard run against Rutgers.

It would have been interesting if Liggins could have stayed healthy enough to get touches. He certainly looked the part physically. I remember watching Liggins during pregame warmups of Army-Navy and thinking he definitely looked like a Divison I athlete.

Liggins hails from Sparks, Md., which is located outside of Towson. So basically, Liggins is going home.

NewOrleans.com is reporting Army prep defensive end Julius Warmsley has signed with Tulane. Warmsley, who is 6-foot-2 and 260 pounds, would have provided some size and depth on Army’s defensive line. He played at St. Michael in Baton Rogue, La. So, it’s another case of a player going home.

“I don’t think that Army was for me,” Warmsley told NewOrleans.com. “The mindset in the north is a lot different than the mindset in the south. Not that I couldn’t handle it but TulaneĀ is a better fit for me overall.”
