Offensive lineman Micahel Purcell will transfer to Maryland football, he announced on Twitter Monday.

Purcell spent the past six seasons at Elon, but only played four full seasons. He redshirted as a freshman, and suffered a season-ending injury as a junior in 2021.

Last year, he enjoyed his most successful season with the Phoenix. He started in all 12 games at center and earned second-team All-CAA honors. Per Pro Football Focus, he ranked seventh among all centers in FCS in pass blocking.

The Centerville, Ohio native transferred to Duke in December, but re-entered the portal in the spring.

After losing three starters this offseason, the Terps hope that Purcell can provide depth and experience on their revamped offensive line.
