Liberty has had vast success over the recent years with transfers from various other Division I and JUCO programs. The Flames have been trying to continue that success with offering North Dakota State running back, Adam Cofield, on Nov. 5. Earlier that same week Liberty also offered Utah transfer running back, TJ Green on Nov. 3.

Cofield is a 5’11, 211 lbs. running back that is from the 2016 recruiting class. Coming out of Blue Springs South High School in Blue Springs, Missouri, Cofield had just two offers out of high school from two FCS programs in NDSU and Missouri State. The two-star prospect was given limited options and ultimately chose NDSU.

Cofield saw playing time in his reshirt-sophomore season in 2018 for the first time and managed to rush for 556 rushing yards and six touchdowns, while averaging 6.9 yards per carry. He followed that up with an even more successful season in 2019 rushing for 813 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was only able to play in one game in the 2020 season, because the Missouri Valley Conference will not be having games this season, due to COVID-19.

Despite being a fifth year player this year, he will be given one more season of eligibility, due to COVID-19 eligibility exemptions. Everyone playing this season or who is sitting out will be given an extra year of eligibility.
