  Just over one year ago, Marshall quarterback Grant Wells started his climb to becoming the Thundering Herd's starting quarterback. Wells was thrown into the situation with the sudden departure of two-year starter Isaiah Green, but Wells successfully made the transition, throwing for 2,091 yards and 18 touchdowns with nine interceptions in 10 games. Those numbers made Wells a first-team All-Conference USA selection and the league's Freshman of the Year in a season in which the Herd climbed to as high as No. 15 in national rankings. The accolades did not come without their share of speed bumps, though, especially at the end of the year, when the Herd dropped three straight games and Wells struggled with accuracy issues.

Since the end of the season, Wells has used those struggles as motivation, and teammates rave that Wells has elevated his game from both physical and mental standpoint to be a much better leader for the Herd in 2021. "You can tell that Grant's grown up a lot," Marshall receiver Talik Keaton said. "Last year he was a redshirt freshman and he had the jitters and stuff, but now he goes about the day like he's been doing it - not a big-head type of way, but he's just more confident." Marshall offensive lineman Alex Mollette agreed that Wells seems different. "He's not a freshman anymore," Mollette said. - Charleston Gazette
