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.
Jan 2 - 1:21 PM

Maryland senior WR Teldrick Morgan caught three passes for 90 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 36-30 loss to Boston College in the Quick Lane Bowl.

Morgan's touchdown was an easy one, requiring no after-catch pyrotechnics. With 12:48 remaining in the third quarter, QB Perry Hills launched deep to Morgan, who was running wild and free down the right sideline. There wasn't a defender within five yards of him at the time and Hills hit him perfectly in stride for the 63-yard score. That drew Maryland to within 36-20. They would manage to work to within a six-point deficit in the fourth quarter, but Hills was sacked on fourth-and-long to end the Terrapins final offensive drive. After transferring over from New Mexico State over the summer, the 6-foot, 195-pound Morgan went on to register a 43-497-4 receiving line.

Maryland sophomore RB Ty Johnson rushed for 159 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries in Monday's 36-30 loss to Boston College in the Quick Lane Bowl.

The Terrapins wasted a beautiful effort from Johnson, who averaged a slick 10.6 YPC and had multiple long runs in which he had room to burst up to full speed. Maryland's first score of the game came courtesy of the 5-foot-10, 184-pound sophomore early in the second quarter. On that one, Johnson found a slight crease and immediately accelerated through the hole before turning on the jets and outracing the Boston College secondary for a 62-yard touchdown. He very nearly had another monster touchdown run in the second half, but just barely stepped out of bounds while dancing through the defense. For the season as a whole, Johnson proved to be one of the more hot/cold players in the country. He logged five games of at least 100 yards rushing -- four of which went for more than 140 yards -- but was held under 50 yards in Maryland's other eight contests. If he can find a bit more consistency in 2017, look out.

Maryland junior LB Shane Cockerille was ruled ineligible for Monday's Quick Lane Bowl date with Boston College.

No reason was given for Cockerille's ineligibility. He turned in a shining campaign prior to dropping into hot water, registering a team-leading 108 tackles (8.0 for loss) and three sacks over the course of 12 games played. The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder's season was all the more remarkable for the fact that prior to a spring shift, he had been playing as a quarterback and fullback.

Maryland (6-6, 3-6 Big 10) will play Boston College (6-6, 2-6 ACC) play in the Quick Lane Bowl on Dec. 26 in Detroit.

This game figures to be decided by the matchup of Maryland's rushing attack against Boston College's run defense. The Terps' top four runners all average better than six yards per carry, headlined by Ty Johnson (845 yards on 8.9 ypc average). Boston College, meanwhile, has the No. 7 run defense (106.9 ypg) in the nation.

Maryland sophomore RB Ty Johnson rushed for 168 yards on 11 carries in Saturday's 31-13 win over Rutgers.

With the victory, the 6-6 Terps achieved bowl eligibility. This was Johnson's fourth 100-yard game. He heads into bowl season with 845 rushing yards and four touchdowns.

Maryland sophomore WR D.J. Moore caught six passes for 124 yards and a touchdown in the school's 28-7 loss to Nebraska.

Moore's game total was decidedly made up of one 92 yard catch and score, but it was a ridiculously impressive play. Moore caught a tunnel screen, making six defenders miss while weaving around blocks and finally breaking away for the touchdown. Seek out the video replay.

Maryland senior QB Perry Hills (shoulder) is a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Nebraska.

Hills has been dealing with a balky shoulder for over a month. Most recently, he was able to start against Ohio State last weekend, but re-injured his wing on a draw just six plays into the game. He did not play after suffering that injury. Caleb Rowe figures to start in his place if he can't give it a go against the Cornhuskers on Saturday, with freshman Tyrrell Pigrome also an option here.

Maryland issued indefinite suspensions to freshman RB Lorenzo Harrison and freshman WR D.J. Turner

Harrison and Turner face three counts of second degree assault and reckless endangerment due to their escapades with a BB gun on November 6. Three students told authorities that they were hit by pellets during the freshmen duo's ill-advised romp. In a statement, AD Kevin Anderson said, "We are aware of the situation and take these matters very seriously." Harrison is the bigger loss, here, as he had rushed for 633 yards (7.2 YPC) and five touchdowns over the course of nine games.
Wed, Nov 16, 2016 03:40:00 PM

Maryland senior QB Perry Hills (shoulder) is listed as the starter on the depth chart in advance of Saturday's game against Ohio State.

Hills has been labeled "day-to-day" by HC D.J. Durkin. He is on the mend from a shoulder injury suffered against Michigan last weekend. It looks like he will be able to play against Ohio State come Saturday. Should the Terrapins opt to keep him on the sideline this weekend, Caleb Rowe would start in his place.
Fri, Nov 11, 2016 08:51:00 PM

Maryland senior QB Perry Hills (shoulder) is day-to-day.

Hills injured his shoulder in the first half of Saturday's loss to Michigan. Caleb Rowe took over for him upon his exit and would draw the start against Ohio State this coming Saturday should Hills be unable to play. Expect further updates as to Hills' availability to come as the practice week progresses.

Maryland senior QB Perry Hills exited in the first half of Saturday's game against Michigan due to an apparent injury.

It isn't quite clear what the issue is, here, as Hills was followed by cameras jogging into the locker room without any outward signs of injury. The ailment might be related to his arm or shoulder. Caleb Rowe took over for him at quarterback after he was forced out. Expect an update on the 6-foot-2, 213-pounder's status after the game. With Michigan rolling 35-0 just before halftime, there is little incentive here for Hills to be reinstalled in the contest, even if his health is permitting.

Maryland senior QB Perry Hills completed 22-for-33 of his attempts for 248 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Saturday's loss to Indiana.

Hills chipped in two rushing touchdowns. The Terps smartly don't ask Hills to do much beyond throwing to the intermediate part of the field, and he's responded with decent efficiency numbers and a solid completion percentage but not many explosive passing plays.
Wed, Nov 2, 2016 07:52:00 PM

Maryland sophomore RB Ty Johnson rushed for 142 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in Saturday's 42-36 loss to Indiana.

Maryland needs to make an effort to make Johnson the focal point of their offense, because depriving him touches may cost the team wins -- if it hasn't already. Johnson is averaging a ridiculous 10.5 yards per carry on the season but had a season-high of 10 touches prior to today's 14.
