Maryland received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 WR Brian Cobbs.

Hayfield Secondary (Virginia) HC Eric Henderson offered up a nice breakdown of his pupil, telling Scout.com, "Great route runner – one of the best I’ve seen in a long time. He’s able to sink his hips and change directions quickly, and gets out of his breaks fast. He’s a smooth athlete, so he doesn’t look like he’s running as fast as he really is." The coach added that Cobbs (6'3/200) is "one of the hardest workers and highest character kids I’ve coached in the last 10 years." Scout ranks him as the No. 5 wideout in the state of Virginia.

247Sports' Ahmed Ghafir reports that Maryland redshirt freshman RB LaDerrien Wilson will transfer.

Per Ghafir, Wilson showcased "improved stamina and burst" during the team's spring game. However, the 5-foot-11, 227-pounder was facing a loaded depth chart led by returnees Ty Johnson, Lorenzo Harrison and Jake Funk, plus true freshmen Anthony McFarland, Javon Leake and Tayon Fleet-Davis. Wilson was a three-star recruit out of high school. Should he opt to move on to another FBS outfit, he would have to sit out the 2017 season to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations.

ESPN's Craig Haubert notes that Maryland four-star 2018 verbal T commit Jaelyn Duncan is " a big, physical offensive line prospect with a high ceiling for development."

"The four-star is more than a big body, as he also possesses excellent athleticism for his size, can be an effective blocker on the move and mirror rushers in pass protection," Haubert writes. The analyst adds that the 6-foot-6, 300-pounder possesses "a wealth of raw ability" while comparing him to former Texas A&M T Germain Ifedi. A freshman redshirt is well within play depending on how Duncan develops over the next year-plus.

Maryland received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 T Jaelyn Duncan.

This is a big one for HC D.J. Durkin, as Duncan ranks as ESPN's No. 45 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. Scout.com is considerably less high on him, tagging the 6-foot-6, 300-pounder as the No. 26 tackle prospect in the class. Outlet analyst Brian Dohn would like to see Duncan work on his technique, particularly in terms of his footwork, which could be "quicker and cleaner."

ESPN's Dan Murphy writes that Maryland redshirt sophomore QB Caleb Henderson "appears to be the frontrunner (for the starting job) from the outside."

The Big Ten Network's Tom Dienhart similarly tagged Henderson as the leader in the clubhouse earlier this offseason, noting that the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder (formerly of North Carolina) "showed poise" during the spring. Tyrrell Pigrome and Max Bortenschlager are also in this mix, but the most interesting name to watch in the competition is probably true freshman Kasim Hill. Hill, who ranked as Rivals' No. 98 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle, just arrived on campus. This competition won't be settled until August camp.

Bleacher Report's Brad Shepard predicts that Maryland freshman QB Kasim Hill will be starting before the season is over.

The four-star Hill begins at a deficit, having not enrolled early. As the crown jewel of HC DJ Durkin's first full recruiting cycle crop, however, he'll be expected to pick things up quickly. "We're certainly really excited about the guys we've already brought in and are bringing in at that position," Durkin said. "To me, we have a tremendous amount of talent there right now and [now] it’s all about those guys competing and figuring out who the guy is. But I really like where we're at." North Carolina transfer Caleb Henderson heads into the summer as the starter. "Henderson is basically around to bridge the gap to Hill's tenure," Shepard wrote.

Maryland sophomore WR DJ Turner was a "star" in the spring game, according to the Big Ten Network's Tom Dienhart, and will play a bigger role in the offense this fall.

Turner caught six passes for 126 yards in the exhibition. The 5-foot-9, 175-pounder, a former three-star recruit, caught just two balls for 19 yards in eight games as a frosh last year. He's in line for much more production this year, particularly if he wins the starting slot job this summer.

Tom Dienhart of the Big Ten Network reports that Maryland redshirt sophomore QB Caleb Henderson (ankle) appears to be the front-runner for the Terps' starting quarterback job.

Unfortunately, Henderson missed Maryland's spring game with an ankle injury. Henderson "showed poise" in practices before suffering that injury, Dienhart wrote, and knows the offense after sitting out last season due to transfer rules. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder migrated over from UNC last August. Tyrrell Pigrome and Max Bortenschlager are Henderson's backups until hyped freshman Kasim Hill arrives.

Maryland RB coach Anthony Tucker said of junior RB Ty Johnson, "He has what I would say is elite speed."

"He approaches his top speed very quickly. Everybody in our league now has to account for the fact this guy can go," Tucker said. "He can go right by you and take it the distance if you’re not careful." Johnson used that blink-and-goodbye speed -- he has been clocked at 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash -- to rack up 1,004 rushing yards last season. His 9.1 YPC average led the country. His 2016 season was a two-faced one, as Johnson failed to surpass 50 yards rushing in eight contests, but also posted four contests of at least 140 yards rushing. We would like to see more consistency out of his game during the coming season, but the upside is there for a truly monster campaign if he can put it together.

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.
