Former Boston College basketball player Garland Owens transferred to Maryland.

Owens intends to join the football team and play tight end for his fifth season of eligibility. In so doing, he's become the first ever basketball player to transfer to Maryland to play football for the Terps. The hardcourt-to-TE transition has been popularized in recent years; Baylor, San Jose State, Western Kentucky and LSU are all also attempting to use basketball players on the gridiron in 2017.

Utah State sophomore WR Rayshad Lewis announced his transfer to Maryland.

"I actually didn’t know going into the visit that I was going to commit," Lewis said. "I just felt that during the visit, it was a really good fit for me." Rayshad is Ray Lewis' son, so playing close to Baltimore is not a surprise. Lewis likely will play in the slot and work as an A-back.

Utah State sophomore WR/CB Rayshad Lewis will transfer.

Rayshad, the son of Ray Lewis, had 40 catches for 476 yards last year in his true freshman season. His defection is a big blow to the Aggies. Lewis was one of the offense's top playmakers and he was expected to possibly play both ways and also return punts this fall. If Lewis bolts to another FBS program -- and there will be plenty of interest -- than he'll have to sit out a season.

An AFC director of college scouting believes Maryland CB Will Likely (ACL) may have been the first corner taken if he was 6-feet tall.

Unfortunately, the 5-foot-7, 171-pounder is five inches short. To add injury to insult, Likely tore his ACL in mid-October. "Stick that guy in a 6-foot body and he's probably the first cornerback off the board this year," the evaluator said. "He's got everything you want other than NFL size. He's a really good football player but it's going to be hard to bang the table for a 5-foot-7 cornerback who is coming off of an ACL tear." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein likens Likely to fellow diminutive CB Tavon Young. "His lack of size will put a ceiling on his draft stock, but Likely is talented enough to become a slot corner in the NFL," Zierlein wrote. "His ability to take over return duties should add value for a player who can make a team better regardless of what the tape measure says."

Maryland CB Will Likely (ACL) attended the Ravens' local prospect workout on Monday.

The 5-foot-7, 171-pounder may not get drafted due to a combination of his small stature and the ACL he tore in October. Likely said last month that NFL teams have only talked with him about kick returning and cornerback, not about moving to slot wideout. Special teams will likely be his ticket onto a roster. Likely averaged 25.7 yards per kick return and 13.1 yards per punt return in college.

Maryland redshirt sophomore OL Quarvez Boulware will transfer.

Hat tip to 247Sports' Ahmed Ghafir for this news nugget. Boulware appeared in six contests this past season, one of those in a starting role. The 6-foot-3, 270-pounder was a four-star recruit for the 2015 cycle. Should he decide to remain in the FBS with his transfer, he would be forced to sit out the 2017 season to satisfy the NCAA regulation.

Maryland CB Will Likely said that teams are only talking to him about return/corner duties, not slot wideout.

Likely tore his ACL in mid-October and won't be taking part in tests at the Combine. His return prowess could legitimately give him a bump in the draft -- it is not just a token part of his game. For his career with the Terps, Likely averaged 25.7 yards per kick return and 13.1 yards per punt return.

Maryland hired Fordham OC/OL coach Tyler Bowen to serve as OL coach.

Homecoming! Bowen played for three seasons at Maryland during the mid-2000's and also spent time with the Terps as a graduate assistant. He had been with Fordham for the past two seasons. In something of a corresponding move, the man he is replacing, Dave Borbely, has been shifted to an off-field role as special assistant to the head coach.

Maryland redshirt senior OL Mike Minter will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility.

Minter is set to graduate later this spring. He won't be transferring, but rather moving on from football altogether in order to pursue his career aspirations. "My body’s been through hell and back the past four years," said the 6-foot-3, 305-pounder, "and I’m looking at a lot of job offers now." He had been expected to work among Maryland's starters for the coming season, but HC D.J. Durkin will have to groom a replacement, now.

Maryland flipped four-star 2017 ATH Tahj Capehart from Virginia Tech.

Maryland has been doing work throughout the recruiting cycle. That work has continued into National Signing Day. No good for the Hokies, in this case. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Capehart has potential as either a corner or a wide receiver, though he might find his best fit on offense. Scout.com notes that there is "no doubt" that Capehart is one of the best wideouts in the country.

Four-star 2017 RB Anthony McFarland committed to Maryland.

This is an enormous get for DJ Durkin and his staff, in the words of Rivals "their biggest recruiting win to date." Miami was considered the favorite to land McFarland, but the prospect surprised analysts, citing a desire of "staying home and staying close to my family." The 5-foot-8, 186-pound is a four-star recruit ranked by Rivals as the No. 142 prospect in the land. McFarland checks in as the No. 111 prospect in the ESPN300. Scout.com's Brian Dohn called McFarland a "physical, violent runner," who possesses "the power to run between the tackles and the speed to get to the edge."

Uncommitted four-star 2017 RB Anthony McFarland has delayed his commitment after speaking with his parents.

McFarland was expected to announce his pledge earlier this week, but it looks like he will take a little while longer to stew on the decision. He is choosing between Miami and Maryland. The 5-foot-8, 186-pound back is a native of Hyattsville, Maryland is extremely familiar with the program, having made multiple visits over the course of his recruitment. Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman sees the Terrapins as perhaps the most logical destination for McFarland, writing that "There is a strong feeling [among insiders] that because he knows this environment and has excelled in this environment that he should go to Maryland."

Uncommitted four-star 2017 RB Anthony McFarland is deciding between Miami and Maryland.

Alabama was also in his top-three as of early December, but it looks like we have ourselves a two-program race at this juncture. The 5-foot-8, 186-pounder did not play at Dematha Catholic High School (Maryland) this past season due to a broken leg. This could actually make him a steal for either the Hurricanes or Terrapins, if only because he might not have received quite the interest on the recruiting front that he might have otherwise seen had he been healthy. Scout.com's Brian Dohn calls McFarland a "physical, violent runner," one who possesses "the power to run between the tackles and the speed to get to the edge." Dohn's outlet ranks him as the No. 71 overall prospect in the 2017 class.

Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell points to Maryland's current recruiting class as one of the surprises of the 2017 cycle.

Surprise might be an understatement. During the past three recruiting cycles, Maryland has finished up at No. 48, No. 55 and No. 39 on Rivals. For the 2017 cycle, though, the Terps are sitting pretty at No. 12. The D.J. Durkin factor here cannot be overstated, as those previous three classes were largely Randy Edsall productions. Among the four-star prospects currently on Maryland's ledger, QB Kasim Hill (Rivals' No. 102) and DB Deon Jones (No. 136). Farrell notes that Maryland will likely shake out around No. 25 or thereabouts when all is said and done.

Maryland received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017i ATH Markquese Bell.

In addition to Maryland, Bell had previously taken official visits to Rutgers, Ohio State and Virginia Tech. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder lands on the ESPN 300 at No. 95, with the outlet noting that he "possesses the physical and measurable traits you look for and for us projects on defense given his demeanor and toughness and craving for contact." They view him as more committed on defense than offense at this juncture, though he has the talent to play either side of the ball.
