Former Illinois senior ILB Tre Watson transferred to Maryland as a graduate.

Watson tied for eighth in the Big Ten with 102 tackles last season. Maryland needed second-level reinforcement with Jermaine Carter, Shane Cockerille and Jalen Brooks all leaving. The 6-foot-2, 235-pound Watson will almost assuredly start from Day 1 at middle linebacker for the Terps.

Maryland redshirt junior OL Damian Prince will return to school for the 2018 season.

Prince (6'3/315) started 11 of 13 games at right tackle for the Terps during the 2017 campaign. It's all setting up perfectly for Maryland on the offensive line, as left tackle Derwin Gray had already previously announced that he would be coming back. They'll also be returning their starting guards in Sean Christie and Terrance Davis, plus C Brendan Moore.

Maryland redshirt junior OL Derwin Gray will return to school in 2018.

Gray (6'5/330) was considering entering the draft according to many sources, but will come back and play for his senior season. He started at left tackle for the Terrapins in 2017, and was an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection.

Maryland has hired James Madison OL coach Bryan Stinespring to be the new offensive line coach.

Stinespring moves over to the Terrapins after coaching the offensive line at James Madison for the last two years; helping the Dukes win a national championship and play for another. Prior to that, he was a long-time coach for Virginia Tech, serving as offensive coordinator and an offensive line coach for 25 seasons. He replaces Tyler Bowen, who left to coach the line at Penn State.

Terrapin Sports Report's Scott Greene reports that Maryland has hired Marshall DC Chuck Heater to serve as safeties coach.

This is a nice hire for Terps HC D.J. Durkin. Heater has landed Marshall within the top 20 in scoring defense thrice during his five-year run with the Thundering Herd (2013-17). Falling on the opposite end of that spectrum last year was Maryland, who surrendered an average of 38.9 points during the 2017 campaign. Durkin and Heater previously worked together on Urban Meyer's staff at Florida back in 2010.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that Maryland redshirt junior G Damian Prince is considering entering the 2018 NFL Draft.

Nothing official from Prince, yet. He has until Jan. 15 to decide whether or not to jump into the professional fray. Draft Wire's Luke Easterling saw the 6-foot-3, 315-pounder off the board in Round 3 of a mock draft exercise in mid-October. Prince will likely be sitting in that gray area between Day 2 and Day 3 come the spring.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that Maryland redshirt junior OL Derwin Gray is considering declaring for the NFL Draft.

Gray (6'5/330) was a 12-game starter at left tackle for the Terrapins this season and earned All-Big Ten honorable mention from the coaches for his work during the campaign. While all of this is shiny enough, should he declare, it might be an uphill climb to land on an NFL team. Draft Analyst currently stamps Gray with a UDFA grade.

Maryland signed four-star 2018 DT Austin Fontaine.

Fontaine (6'4/318) initially committed to Maryland back in April. 247Sports' No. 144 overall prospect in the 2018 class, he signed his NLI on Wednesday. The Hyattsville, Maryland native is already college-ready in terms of his strength and conditioning and has shown a consistent ability to cave in opposing offensive linemen.

Football Scoop is reporting that former Ball State HC Pete Lembo is a strong candidate for the Fordham job.

Lembo, who will turn 48 in April, has spent the last two years as the Assistant Head Coach along with coaching the special teams and tight ends. Before that, he coached Ball State to 33-29 record and took the Cardinals to two bowl games. He also served as a head coach at Elon and Lehigh, and has three playoff appearances at the FCS level. Fordham's previous coach, Andrew Breiner, left for Mississippi State to work under new Bulldogs coach Joe Moorhead.

Maryland signed uncommitted three-star 2018 WR Jeshaun Jones.

With the 6-foot-1, 176-pound Jones now in the fold, Maryland is up to four wideouts for the class. It's not reasonable to expect any of those four to immediately step up in the wake of D.J. Moore's declaration for the NFL Draft, but at the very least, the Terps have a decent amount of young depth at the position, now. Jones is an aces route-runner and possesses splendidly soft hands. He was being recruited as both an inside and outside receiver, but 247Sports' Ahmed Ghafir sees him as a likely piece to play out of the slot early in his career.

Former Auburn junior DL Byron Cowart will transfer to Maryland.

Cowart spent the season at the JUCO level, so he should be eligible to play immediately for the Terps. He also missed a portion of the 2016 season after an appendix removal. The former 5-star recruit will look to have a big, bounce back season.

Maryland junior WR D.J. Moore will forego his final season of eligibility to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Moore (5'11/215) logged an 80-1033-8 receiving line for the past campaign. The All-Big Ten first-teamer is one of the top draft-eligible wideouts in all the land, with ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. putting him up as the No. 2 receiver in his latest positional rankings for the spring show. He has a decent shot at a Day 2 selection if he can put in a strong evaluating process. Former Jets scout Jeff Bauer said earlier this season, "you have to beware where this kid is [on the field]."

Maryland redshirt junior CB J.C. Jackson will forego his final season of eligibility for the 2018 NFL Draft.

Jackson initially joined the collegiate ranks with Florida in 2014. He underwent shoulder surgery following his first game in a Gators uniform. The following April, the 5-foot-11, 195-pounder was kicked off the team after he was charged with four felonies in relation to an armed robbery. Those charges were ultimately dropped, after which Jackson dropped down to the JUCO level before joining Maryland prior to the 2016 season. He's started 23 games for the Terrapins over the past two seasons and earned All-Big Ten honorable mention for his work this year, when he registered 37 tackles, three interceptions and seven pass breakups. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell notes that while the redshirt junior will face obvious questions from the NFL as to his past off-field troubles, "sources have raved about the talent and skill set with Jackson." With a strong draft process, the athletic corner could potentially land as a Day 2 selection.

NFL Draft Scout's Dane Brugler believes Maryland junior WR D.J. Moore has day two potential.

Mel Kiper recently listed Moore as the second best receiver in the 2018 class, which is a major jump up from other evaluations we've seen. Kiper is from that area, so perhaps he knows something we don't. Moore is currently considering his NFL options.
Mon, Dec 11, 2017 11:25:00 AM

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Maryland junior WR D.J. Moore as the No. 2 draft-eligible receiver.

This is easily the highest we've seen Moore ranked thus far. Kiper slots the 5-foot-11, 215-pounder above prospects with more hype like Courtland Sutton, Christian Kirk, Anthony Miller and James Washington. Moore had 80 catches for 1,033 yards and eight touchdowns this season. He recently said he's contemplating declaring for the draft.
