Ten Maryland football seniors were selected to the East-West Shrine Bowl 1000 list, per release. The list recognizes the top 1,000 senior players in college football. The student-athletes had to be currently eligible for both the 2023 East-West Shrine Bowl and the 2023 NFL Draft.
Last year’s bowl included 45 eventual picks in the 2022 NFL Draft.
The Terps named are offensive lineman Spencer Anderson, defensive back Jakorian Bennett, offensive lineman Johari Branch, wide receiver Jacob Copeland, wide receiver Dontay Demus Jr., offensive lineman Jaelyn Duncan, running back Challen Faamatau, wide receiver Jeshaun Jones, defensive lineman Mosiah Nasili-Kite and linebacker Durell Nchami.
Five of the athletes are prior recipients of All-Big Ten honorable mentions, and the Terps’ 10 selections are the fifth-most in the conference, with only Michigan, Ohio State, Iowa and Michigan State having more.
Maryland begins its season on Sept. 3, playing host to the Buffalo Bulls at Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium.
