Maryland football has continued to work the transfer market and secured a commitment from former Buffalo tight end Tyler Mabry on Friday.

The 6’3, 265-pound IMG Academy product played in 38 games over his three full seasons in Buffalo and has racked up 60 catches for 537 yards and three touchdowns. Most recently in 2018, Mabry tallied 27 catches for 230 yards and two touchdowns. He earned a First Team All-MAC selection, and Buffalo went 10-4 on the season.
Mabry has an NFL-ready body and has shown an ability to catch passes across the middle and running short routes with an ability to catch and turn up field. His skill set and frame will also come to use as an edge blocker in the run game for Maryland.
The Terrapins’ tight end group now has significant depth. Mabry and Chigoziem Okonkwo should form a strong 1-2 punch, and others such as Noah Barnes and Andrew Park also have experience at the position. Malik Jackson and Tyler Devera were also signed by Mike Locksley and his staff in the Class of 2019, so adding Mabry could allow them to redshirt and develop.
