BG running back finds new home as graduate transfer.
Bowling Green running back Andrew Clair, who rushed for 1,937 yards over his four years there, is now headed to Evanston, Ill. Clair tweeted out his decision to enter the portal on Feb. 8, and announced his decision to transfer (after he graduates in May) to Northwestern a month later.
Clair was a lot of fun to watch at Bowling Green. Not a big back (5’11, 205 lbs.) but was trusted to pick up some yards with up-the-middle handoffs. He’s a speedy guy with pretty decent receiving hands out of the backfield, and he’s figured out more ways than one to pick up extra yards after contact. Clair impressed very early on with Third Team All-MAC finishes in 2017 and 2018, but didn’t have as much luck in the second-half of his BG career: injuries (foot, shoulder), the coaching changes, simply playing on a bad team, and the COVID-19 pandemic (RIP Tinisha Watson).
For his BG career (30 games), Clair rushed for 1,937 yards on 362 carries (5.4 avg.) and scored 13 touchdowns. He also caught 44 total passes for 330 yards (7.5 yards/rec.) and scored four times.
