UNH Love

Malik Love tries to get by a Maine defender during UNH’s victory over the Black Bears last November. Love will play next season as a grad transfer at Stony Brook.

The University of New Hampshire football team is losing its leading receiver from a season ago.

Malik Love, who had 48 catches for 542 yards in 2019 as a senior at UNH, will join Colonial Athletic Association rival Stony Brook as a graduate transfer.

Love, an Alcoa, Tenn., native and all-New England player in his postgraduate year at Holderness School, spent the past five years at UNH. He missed all but two games in 2018 with a hamstring injury, thus gaining another year of eligibility. He finished his career in Durham with 179 receptions with 1,810 yards and five touchdowns during his career

“I’m feeling extremely blessed for the opportunity to come to Stony Brook to continue my football career as well as finish my master’s,” said Love on Stony Brook’s athletics website. “I am excited for everything ahead of me, and I can’t wait to reach my goals this year as well as the goals for the team.”
