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.

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.

Maryland sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager (undisclosed) should be able to start Saturday's game against Michigan State.

"Max has been practicing. I think there’s a really good chance he’ll be ready to go on Saturday," Maryland coach D.J. Durkin said. Durkin called the sophomore signal-caller a "game time" decision on Monday, but it sounds like he's going to be able to give it a go against the Spartans. If he can't, former walk-on Ryan Brand could be forced to make a start for the injury-laden Terrapins.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman does not believe that Maryland four-star 2018 verbal CB commit Noah Boykin will flip from his pledge.

Boykin (6'2/170) is currently being wooed by Notre Dame. The Washington, DC, native recently took an official visit to the Irish, but Friedman passes along that "Maryland’s strong relationships with Boykin and his family go back a long way." Boykin ranks as Rivals' No. 24 cornerback prospect in the 2018 class.

Maryland HC D.J. Durkin called sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager (undisclosed) a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Michigan State.

"Like I’ve said before, Max is a really tough kid, a great competitor. As you make decisions as a coach, you always have to make decisions for the team," said Durkin, who later added that he thought Bortenschlager would be "ready to go" come Saturday. If he is sidelined versus the Wolverines, sophomore Ryan Brand would make a second consecutive start in his place. Maryland has turned to four different starting quarterbacks this season due to a rash of injuries.
Nov 14 - 7:38 PM

Maryland redshirt senior WR Taivon Jacobs had eight catches for 92 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 35-10 loss to Michigan.

Jacobs is so old that he used to start across from Stefon Diggs. Despite his longevity, this was a career-best game in his fifth campaign. The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder has 15 receptions over his last two games after posting only 25 catches in his first eight contests.
Nov 11 - 7:27 PM

Maryland redshirt sophomore QB Ryan Brand started Saturday's game against Michigan.

Brand is the fourth quarterback to start for Maryland this season. He takes the assignment with Max Bortenschlager sitting out due to an undisclosed injury.
Nov 11 - 3:53 PM

Maryland sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager (undisclosed) did not start Saturday's game against Michigan.

The Terps' nightmare season at quarterback continues. With Bortenschlager out, Maryland will now turn to its fourth starting signal-caller this season in sophomore Ryan Brand.
Nov 11 - 3:52 PM

Maryland redshirt sophomore QB Ryan Brand is in line to start Saturday's game against Michigan if sophomore Max Bortenschlager (undisclosed) is ruled out.

Terrapins HC D.J. Durkin has deemed Bortenschlager a game-time decision for Saturday's showdown with the Wolverines. If he can't play, Brand would be the fourth quarterback to start for Maryland this season. The team has already gone through Tyrrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill, both of whom have been lost for the campaign due to injury. A former three-star recruit, Brand has completed 8-of-12 passes for 68 yards in limited action this season.
Nov 9 - 2:39 PM

Maryland HC D.J. Durkin said that sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Michigan.

"Nothing definitive yet," Durkin said, later adding that "it's nothing we haven't been through before." Bortenschlager sustained the undisclosed injury concern after taking a hard hit in Saturday's loss to Rutgers. Durkin isn't joking about being through this before -- Bortenschlager started the season as the team's third-string quarterback before injuries to Tyrrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill forced him into a starting role. If he can't play against the Wolverines this weekend, the team would drop down to sophomore Ryan Brand.

Nov 8 - 9:41 PM

Maryland junior RB Ty Johnson rushed for 41 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries in Saturday's 31-24 loss to Rutgers.

Johnson (5'10/184) is best known for his long touchdown gallops, but no such bolts were in play on Saturday -- the junior's longest run went for just six yards. After surpassing 100 yards rushing in three of Maryland's first four games, Johnson has failed to hit the century mark in any of his last five contests. A still-staunch Michigan defense probably won't do him any favors next weekend.
Nov 4 - 8:53 PM

Maryland sophomore WR D.J. Moore caught three passes for 44 yards in Saturday's 38-13 loss to Wisconsin.

Moore entered action on Saturday having posted at least 80 yards receiving in five of six games. No such luck against the Badgers, though. Despite that down performance, the 5-foot-11, 215-pounder is still putting in a superb campaign on the whole, having caught 47 passes for 668 yards and seven touchdowns.
Oct 22 - 3:59 PM

Maryland sophomore WR D.J. Moore caught 12 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-21 loss to Northwestern on Saturday.

Moore (5'11/215) amazingly could have had an even better day if Max Bortenschlager had a semblance of accuracy with the football on Saturday. Still, this is another monster game for one of the best wideouts in the Big Ten conference. His first score was a 12-yarder from Bortenschlager to open the scoring in the first, and they connected on a 52 yard score in the second. Look for Moore to continue to feast next week against Wisconsin.
Oct 14 - 7:07 PM

Maryland sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager has left Saturday's game against Northwestern with an arm injury.

Backup quarterback Caleb Henderson has replaced Bortenschlager. He is questionable to return.
