Maryland football announced its spring schedule Wednesday morning. Practice will start on Monday, March 5 and run through the spring game on April 14.
The 15-practice slate includes five that will be open to the media; only the spring game will be open to the public. It’ll be the first chance to see 12 new Terps in action: Byron Cowart, TJ Bradley, Tyler DeSue, Jeshaun Jones, Chigoziem Okonkwo, Jalen Alexander, Jordan Mosley, Durell Nchami, Vincent Flythe, Marcus Lewis, Tre Watson and Rayshad Lewis.
Cowart and Bradley are junior college transfers, but couldn’t be more different. Cowart is the former No. 3 overall recruit, while Bradley has played one season of football since his freshman year of high school. Watson is a grad transfer, while both Lewises are traditional transfers who are now eligible after sitting out last season. The rest of the bunch are true freshmen, each of which is capable of seeing playing time this coming season. Being in College Park to partake in spring practice will only help those chances. DeSue, specifically, with Tyrrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill not fully back from knee injuries, will see plenty of reps.
