High school highlights:

How'd He Get to College Park?

Rowe earned honorable mention all-state honors after leading his school to an 8-3 mark including a playoff appearance and also was a finalist for Mr. Football for the state of South Carolina.

He saw action in seven games during his first two seasons in College Park and performed respectably. He suffered a season ending ACL tear during his freshman year as well as a season ending injury last season after appearing in four games. He has a thrown 12 touchdowns during his career and boasts a 127.1 passer rating.

Career Highlight:

Completing 20 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns in a start against Clemson on 10/26/13.

Dream Season:

Rowe's vertical passing ability matches well with what Maryland wants to accomplish on offense, leading to a more explosive offensive attack in the running and passing games.

2015 Prospectus:

At the conclusion of last season, Rowe was penciled in as the starter for 2015 after the departure of C.J. Brown. However with an off-season acquisition of Oklahoma State transfer Daxx Garman, Rowe must now fight for the starting QB position with Garman and junior, Perry Hills.

Rowe certainly has the potential to win the job and perform well enough for the Terps to win games this year, however with three very capable quarterbacks, all who have experience playing against big time competition (as Coach Edsall alluded to) Rowe will have to maintain a consistent level of play or else he could see Garman or Hills given an opportunity to become the signal caller.

Up Next:

Our next player has an older brother who plays the same position at Virginia Tech.
