UNC sophomore QB Caleb Henderson transferred to Maryland.

Henderson wrote on social media over the weekend that he was choosing to transfer from the Tar Heels due to a "family decision," rather than the fact that he had fallen to third in the depth chart behind Mitch Trubisky and Nathan Elliott. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder will have to sit out the 2016 season due to NCAA transfer regulations. He was graded as a four-star recruit out of high school.

Maryland named senior Perry Hills the school's starting QB.

Hills has received first team reps throughout the offseason, so this announcement is not surprising. His top competition, senior Caleb Rowe, was absent for a week with an undisclosed injury. Freshman Tyrell Pigrome could see the field in some instances due to his athleticism.

UNC sophomore QB Caleb Henderson will transfer.

Henderson was never in the running to start -- Mitch Trubisky was named the starter months ago -- but he hoped to win a backup gig for the coming season. That did not come to pass for the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder, who lost out on the No. 2 role to Nathan Elliott this week. While the transfer timing seems suspicious, Henderson said on Twitter that this was a "family decision" that did not relate to football. He ranked as 247Sports' composite's No. 10 pro-style quarterback prospect for the 2015 cycle.

Maryland senior QB Perry Hills is receiving the "bulk" of the first team reps, according to beat writer Roman Stubbs.

Senior Caleb Rowe has been absent for the last week due to an undisclosed injury, and he is Hills' top competition for the starting gig. Athletic freshman Tyrell Pigrome apparently has caught DJ Durkin's eye as well, and the head coach wants to give him a fair opportunity. The Terrapins have lost a number of talents to the NFL over the last two seasons. Maryland opens their season against Howard on September 3.

Maryland redshirt senior RB Wes Brown will be suspended for the opening three games of the 2016 season dude to a violation of the university’s student-athlete code of conduct, which occurred last year.

Brown's suspension started last November, but he was allowed to practice with the team beginning in March. This is not Brown's first suspension, as he missed the entire 2013 season due to an off-field altercation with police. Maryland should go 3-0 to open the season, as they face Howard, FIU and UCF. Brown's suspension last season came at the wrong time, as he had just earned the starting job.

Former Florida redshirt sophomore CB J.C. Jackson will enroll at Maryland on Tuesday.

Jackson is jumping up from the JUCO level and is eligible to play immediately. In fact, 247 Sports' Ryan Bartow already projects Jackson as a starter for the upcoming season. With three years of eligibility remaining, Jackson could emerge as one of Maryland's most talented players. He elected to transfer after facing an armed robbery charge. After all, former Florida defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin is Maryland's head coach.

Four-star 2017 CB Deon Jones committed to Maryland.

Rivals' Adam Friedman was all over this one, predicting Jones' commitment to the Terps in the spring and reiterating that stance at the beginning of July. All of the gold stars to you, Mr. Friedman. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Jones indicated earlier this month that he planned on making visits to Florida and Florida State this summer. No word as to whether those travel plans have changed with his commitment. As for his on-field game, Maryland's new toy possesses "fluid hips" and "uses his length well [to help him] match up with bigger receivers," according to Scout.com's Brian Dohn. While Rivals ranks Jones at No. 131, Scout is higher on him by a considerable degree and slots him into their 2017 list at No. 66.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman wrote that four-star 2017 CB Deon Jones would "likely" commit to Maryland.

Friedman predicted likewise in the spring and nothing has happened that would swing that prediction in the interim. Jones is hoping to visit to Florida and Florida State later this summer as he prepares for his final season at Potomac High. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder might well eventually commit to the Terrapins (he hails from Oxon Hill, Maryland), as Friedman predicts, but Jones also said that he "loved it at Ohio State." He stands as Rivals' No. 131 prospect for the 2017 cycle after tumbling 46 spots in their newest set of rankings released in June. He had previously been listed at No. 85.

New Mexico State graduate WR Teldrick Morgan transferred to Maryland.

"It’s always great to bring a local kid back home [Morgan is from Hanover, Maryland]," HC D.J. Durkin said in a statement, "and on top of that he’s very skilled and brings a wealth of experience to our receivers unit." A groin injury sidelined Morgan for three games last season, but the 6-foot, 195-pounder still managed to catch 44 passes for 534 yards and four touchdowns after hauling in 75 passes for 903 yards and seven touchdowns during his sophomore campaign in 2014. Morgan has led New Mexico State in receptions each of the last two seasons.

Former Florida CB J.C. Jackson will not transfer to South Carolina.

Jackson was booted from Florida after he was arrested for armed robbery last April. He was acquitted of all three charges levied against him stemming from that arrest. The 5-foot-11, 195-pounder is now enrolled at a community college in California, but reports surfaced last month that he would be transferring to South Carolina. 247Sports' JC Shurburrtt is reporting that no transfer to the Gamecocks will be in the cards, writing that "[s]ources indicate Jackson is not eligible to transfer to the Gamecocks in a ruling that’s beyond South Carolina’s control." He further reports that Jackson will now likely land at Maryland, where former Florida DC D.J. Durkin reigns supreme as head coach.

Maryland possesses a turnover margin of -35 over the last four seasons.

Coaches consistently cite turnovers as the No. 1 event in changing the outcome of a game. Over the last four years, Maryland is 21-29 with two bowl losses. This is the No. 1 area D.J. Durkin needs to improve on during his first season. Maryland lost a large number of defensive players to the NFL, including DB Sean Davis, edge rusher Yannick Ngakoue and defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson, so that is one area to watch.

Maryland four-star 2017 QB Kasim Hill jumped up to No. 102 in the latest edition of the Rivals250.

Hill had previously been ranked by Rivals as the No. 242 recruit in the country. A 142-spot leap is none too shabby. "At the New Jersey Rivals Camp, Hill continued to build momentum after an impressive junior campaign," wrote outlet Mid-Atlantic recruiting analyst Adam Friedman. "The Maryland commit’s timing and accuracy look better and better each time we see him." The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder from Washington D.C. said that part of the reason he chose the Terrapins is that Maryland houses a strong undergraduate business school.

College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread noted that Maryland graduate RB Trey Edmunds "won't be handed the starting job."

The Terrapins are looking to replace Brandon Harris, who slid through the draft before landing with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent. Edmunds transferred over from Virginia Tech back in January. His biggest competition to start in 2016 is likely to be senior RB Wes Brown. Last season, Brown rushed for 317 yards (4.5 YPC) and three touchdowns while backing up Ross. Injuries have been somewhat problematic for the 6-foot-1, 221-pound Edmunds. With Virginia Tech, he has played in just 15 games over the past two seasons. A broken clavicle suffered in early October of 2014 knocked him out for the remainder of that campaign.

Maryland OC Walt Bell said that HC D.J. Durkin is "unbelievably relentless when it comes to recruiting."

"[Durkin] fosters that environment, making it important, demanding that it’s important to every coach and every grad assistant in the building that’s allowed to recruit," Bell said. That focus and energy has already started to pay off in commitments, most notably with DE Joshua Kaindoh, who checks into the ESPN 300 at an impressive No. 18. Kaindoh is the highest-ranked commitment the Terps have landed since 2012.
May 13 - 8:41 PM

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman predicted that Maryland would ultimately land four-star CB Deon Jones for the 2017 cycle.

Jones will be taking official visits to Florida, Florida State and Oklahoma, but Friedman likes the Terps as his final destination due to the fact that the 6-foot-2, 190-pounder hails from Oxon Hill, Maryland. The analyst also tosses Clemson in as a potential contender here. Until he has completed this slate of official visits, it is unlikely that Jones will make a commitment. He ranks as Rivals No. 85 overall recruit for the 2017 cycle and their No. 10 cornerback recruit.
