  07/21/21 - Taulia TagovailoarJr/2023, Maryland, 5-11, 205 (DS#9 QB) + More +

  The University of Maryland announced Monday that junior quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa was named to the 85th annual Maxwell Award watch list. The award is given to the top player in the FBS regardless of position. Tagovailoa is the first Terp since former running back Anthony McFarland in 2019and first Maryland quarterback since Danny O'Brien in 2011 to make the Maxwell Award watch list. Tagovailoa appeared in four games for the Terps during the 2020 season, throwing for 1,011 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. Tagovailoa, the younger brother of Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, led the Big Ten with 13.48 yards per completion. - Baltimore Sun

  04/24/21 - Chigoziem OkonkwoSr/2022, Maryland, 6-1, 244 (DS#6 FB) + More +

  When Locksley arrived in College Park from Alabama, there was much talk about how tight ends would be more incorporated in the offense than in previous seasons. In 2019, Okonkwo recorded 19 catches for 201 yards and two touchdowns in eight games. The senior sat out the 2020 season with a medical condition he revealed last week to be myocarditis, which he suspects to be from contracting the coronavirus early last year. With Okonkwo sidelined and a thin position group, tight ends were once again nonexistent in the Terps' offense, recording just one catch in 2020. Maryland's skilled wide receiver group was able to make up for the absence of Okonkwo, but his presence, along with early enrollees C.J. Dippre and Weston Wolff, are expected to add more versatility to the offense. - Baltimore Sun

  04/23/21 - Tayon Fleet-DavisrSr/2022, Maryland, 5-11, 220 (DS#999 RB) + More +

  Tayon Fleet-Davis's long wait began nearly a year and a half ago, when the Maryland football team had just two games remaining in Coach Michael Locksley's first season. In hindsight, Fleet-Davis says, "something I'd do differently is just staying home." But on that night in November he didn't, and the consequences of that choice stretched through a considerable portion of his career with the Terrapins. On a street that runs through campus, Fleet-Davis was pulled over by University of Maryland police and charged with driving a vehicle while impaired, reckless driving and other offenses. Locksley suspended Fleet-Davis, who continued practicing with the team but didn't play in those final two games of the 2019 season. Last year he appeared only once, in the season finale. In February, the state decided to not prosecute the charges, according to public judiciary logs.

Fleet-Davis will participate in Saturday's spring game and then begin his fifth season as a Terp in the fall. He's the veteran in the running backs room after showing flashes of potential during his sophomore and junior seasons. His role presumably would have grown last year, but he lost that opportunity. Now that he's back - preparing for a 12-game schedule rather than the shortened slate in 2020 - he says he has learned and grown over the past year. "You don't want to get in any trouble," said Fleet-Davis, who, until last week, had not been available to speak with reporters since the incident. "And I try to stay away from a lot of situations where I know that's not good for me. If I've got to ask myself twice, then it's probably not good for me. So just being smart and staying away from situations that you can avoid." - Washington Post

  02/27/21 - Reece UdinskirSr/2022, Maryland, 6-3, 224 (DS#78 QB) + More +

  Reece Udinksi, the Southern Conference preseason offensive player of the year, passed for 248 yards and a pair of touchdowns as VMI edged Furman 14-13 on Saturday. Nursing a one-point lead into the fourth quarter, VMI played clock control but the strategy appeared to have backfired as the Paladins were driving with under a minute to go until a flukey turnover with 47 seconds left allowed the Keydets to preserve the win. Furman, which started its final drive pinned at its own 11, had advanced to the VMI 24 when a third-down snap bounced off the hip of Ryan DeLucca, who was in motion behind the line of scrimmage. The ball bounced right to VMI's Carter Johnson, who was crashing through the line of scrimmage, and Johnson wrapped it up. VMI (1-0 Southern Conference) ended the game in victory formation. - VMI/AP College Football

  The Maryland football team has added some much needed depth at quarterback. Reece Udinski, a graduate transfer from Virginia Military Institute, announced his commitment to Maryland on Sunday. The 6-foot-4, 224-pound Udinski was named the Southern Conference Preseason Offensive Player of the Year for the Football Championship Subdivision Keydets after passing for 3,276 yards with 19 touchdowns and five interceptions in 2019. He began the season with an FCS-record 368 consecutive passes without an interception and finished with a 64% completion rate. - Baltimore Sun

  Fifth-year senior Jake Funk, the Terps' lead running back, announced he will declare for the NFL draft. Funk played well in his limited opportunities this season after recovering from tearing his ACL both in 2018 and 2019. Maryland had only six scholarship seniors this season. Running back Tayon Fleet-Davis, who played only one game, and defensive lineman Sam Okuayinonu, a regular contributor on the defensive line, were listed as seniors in 2020 but not honored at Maryland's senior day ceremony. Both could return for 2021. - Washington Post

  12/29/20 - Marcus FlemingSo/2024, Maryland, 5-09, 170 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Marcus Fleming, a former four-star prospect and wide receiver at Nebraska, announced Monday that he is transferring to Maryland. The 5-foot-10, 165-pound receiver was a four-star recruit out of Miami Northwestern in Florida and originally chose Nebraska over offers from Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Maryland and others. He was rated the No. 44 wide receiver and the No. 259 overall player in the Class of 2020, according to the 247 Sports Composite rankings. The former track star is known for his speed. Fleming won the Florida state high school championship in the 100- and 200-meter dash and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds at Nike's The Opening in February 2018. - Baltimore Sun

  12/23/20 - Jake FunkrSr/2021, Maryland, 5-10, 204 (DS#29 RB) + More +

  Jake Funk, a running back for the Maryland football team who enjoyed his most successful, albeit pandemic-shortened, season in his final year of eligibility, announced Monday afternoon that he intends to enter the NFL draft. The fifth-year senior declared for the draft on Twitter, writing: "It has always been a dream of mine to one day compete at the highest level of football and I'm excited to announce today that I'll be declaring for the 2021 NFL draft. I will truly miss my teammates, coaches and staff that have helped mold me into the man that I am today, but I couldn't be more thrilled for this opportunity."

The 5-foot-11, 202-pound Funk trailed only Minnesota's Mohamed Ibrahim of Baltimore in the Big Ten in average yards per game (129.0) and led the conference in yards per carry (8.6) while scoring three rushing touchdowns. He also caught 10 passes for 68 yards and one score. Funk, a Gaithersburg resident who set the Maryland state high school record for career touchdowns with 52 on 249 carries at Damascus High School in Montgomery County, rebounded from a torn ACL in his left knee in back-to-back seasons in 2018 and 2019. He never gave up on his dream to serve as the Terps' primary ball carrier and capably filled the void created by the departures of Anthony McFarland (614 yards and eight touchdowns) and Javon Leake (736 yards and eight scores). - Baltimore Sun

  12/11/20 - Taulia TagovailoarJr/2023, Maryland, 5-11, 205 (DS#9 QB) + More +

  After spending a year at Alabama, Tagovailoa, the younger brother of Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, transferred to Maryland and has gone through some ups and downs this season. He's 75-of-122 for 1,011 yards and seven touchdowns, and he's also thrown seven interceptions. Tagovailoa is third in the Big Ten in passing yards, but he also can be elusive with his feet. It'll be a challenge for Rutgers' defense. "I think the quarterback is dangerous," Schiano said. "He's dangerous but with his arm and with his feet. I think when he went into the portal, there was talk, 'How good is he?' Well, I can tell you, he's real good. He's a good passer. He's very good with his feet." - Asbury Park Press

  Another freshman from Florida has left the Nebraska football program. Marcus Fleming, a wide receiver from Miami, is no longer on the team, coach Scott Frost confirmed Monday. "We wish him the best. He's not going to be on the team anymore," Frost said. "We'll move on and feel good about that position and where it is." Fleming, the Miami Northwestern graduate, appeared to have his stock on the rise in the program when he led the team with 75 yards on five catches against Northwestern on Nov. 7. Those, though, were his only receptions of the season. He played sparingly against Penn State and Illinois at home and then did not crack the Huskers' 74-man travel roster to Iowa. - Lincoln Journal Star

  11/29/20 - Taulia TagovailoarJr/2023, Maryland, 5-11, 205 (DS#9 QB) + More +

  Maryland (2-2) quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa actually didn't look rusty early, pushing multiple Maryland drives deep into IU territory to start. Indiana's defense did enough to stop him, grabbing a pair of interceptions before the intermission. But Tagovailoa still had 162 yards passing at half, though he'd completed fewer than 50 percent of his passes. The Hoosiers' game plan on that side of the ball developed slowly, soft coverage on the outside shifting as the game wore on. Pressure started to bother him in the second quarter and really ratcheted up in the third. At the same time, that soft coverage became tighter, forcing Tagovailoa to hold the ball longer than he should have. His third pick came after a sack made by good coverage got the Maryland sophomore jumpy enough to force a bad pass over the middle right to a waiting Micah McFadden. The Hoosiers scored off that interception to take a 27-3 lead midway through the fourth quarter, and salt the game away. - Indianapolis Star/News

  Maryland coach Mike Locksley grew up rooting for the team he now coaches, so he's intimately aware of all the beatings the Terps have taken year after year from Penn State. Knowing that makes performances like the one Taulia Tagovailoa and the Terps turned in during their 35-19 win over regional rival Penn State on Saturday all that more special. Tagovailoa competed 18 of 26 passes for 282 yards and three touchdown passes.

Rakim Jarrett caught five passes for 144 yards with a pair of touchdowns, Dontay Demus caught another and Jake Funk added 80 rushing yards and a score for the Terps (2-1, 2-1 Big Ten Conference), who won for just the third time in the 44-game series and first since 2015. "Great team win," Locksley said. "I'm just so happy for those players in that locker room. I'm happy for the former Terp football players that have endured us not playing competitively with (Penn State)." The Nittany Lions have outscored Maryland 163-6 over the last three meetings. Sean Clifford completed 27 of 57 passes for 340 yards with two interceptions and three touchdowns for Penn State, which fell to 0-3 for the first time since 2001. - AP College Football
