MM 12.3: Numerous Maryland football players enter transfer portal

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

NCAA Football: Maryland at Rutgers Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland football’s offseason roster turnover got into full swing Monday afternoon as four players entered the NCAA Transfer Portal.

Perhaps the biggest move was that of twin linemen Brandon and Breyon Gaddy, who entered the portal, according to multiple sources.

Both players came into the Maryland program as defensive tackles, but Breyon was moved to the offensive side of the ball to assist with depth along the line before the 2019 season.

In all, Brandon appeared in 22 games (10 in 2019, 12 in 2018) as a consistent special teams contributor and reserve defensive lineman, while Breyon appeared in 16 games (5 in 2019, 11 in 2018) as a reserve member of both lines.

After decommitting from Tennessee in November of 2016, the Gaddy twins came to College Park as part of DJ Durkin’s 2017 recruiting class — which ranked 18th in the nation and No. 4 in the Big Ten. Breyon was listed as a four-star recruit and Brandon was a three-star.

Along with the Brandon and Breyon, walk-on kicker Paul Inzerillo announced his intention to transfer and reserve TE Robert Schwob announced his plans to leave the program as well.

Three other players have entered the portal since October — tight end Tyler Devera, wide receiver Jayden Comma and defensive back Treron Collins — and wide receiver Sean Savoy left the team in November.

Head coach Mike Locksley and his staff are quickly looking to reshape and rebuild the foundation of the Maryland program, and these spots will open up more chances for junior college and transfer prospects to come in and make a difference in College Park. Though it’s sure to be an uphill battle.
