MM 12.30: Maryland guard Terrance Davis enters transfer portal

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

NCAA Football: Maryland at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland football was back in the news Saturday as guard Terrance Davis entered his name into the transfer portal.

Davis — a four-year starter — played in 37 games throughout his career as a Terp, but struggled with injuries after playing four games in 2019 and eventually opted to shut his season down to retain his redshirt status.

He will be immediately eligible to play in 2020 as a graduate transfer wherever he ends up. Davis was the No. 74 player in the nation, the No. 3 guard and No. 2 player in the state of Maryland in the 2016 class, according to the 247Sports Composite.

With this move, Davis becomes the eighth Maryland player to enter his name in the portal since the 2019 season came to a close. But he is one of the first major losses, as he was expected to be a huge asset as the most experience offensive lineman in 2020.

The first season under head coach Mike Locksley certainly did not go as planned, but the staff has begun its overhaul of players going out of and coming into the program.

During the 2020 recruiting cycle, the coaching staff had a clear desire of beefing up its size up front, with each of the early-period signees standing no smaller than 6’3, 315 pounds. Maryland also has a standing commitment from C.H. Flowers (Md.) offensive lineman Santana Saunders, who plans to sign in February.

With 23 players already signed and four other recruits verbally pledged to the Terps, Locksley and his staff will look to fine tune its recruiting strategy in the new year in order to fill gaps in the roster.
