Maryland fans are going to get an up-close look at their newest quarterback addition sooner than they expected.
The Netflix series “QB1: Beyond the Lights” released a trailer for its third season Thursday, which features Terps freshman quarterback Lance LeGendre. It is scheduled to premiere Aug. 16.
The show essentially takes fans behind the scenes with three elite quarterbacks during their senior season of high school. Previous seasons of the series have included Jake Fromm (now at Georgia), Justin Fields (Ohio State) and Tate Martell (Miami).
Along with LeGendre, Oklahoma’s Spencer Rattler and Kentucky’s Nik Scalzo will also be profiled. While Scalzo tore his ACL during his high school playoffs and Rattler was ruled ineligible for violating a district code of conduct policy, LeGendre led his team to the Louisiana Class 4A championship in December.
LeGendre chose Maryland over Florida State and a few others about two months later in February.
A consensus four-star recruit, LeGendre was ranked as the No. 9 dual-threat quarterback in the country and No. 14 player in Louisiana for the 2019 class. While Virginia Tech transfer Josh Jackson is expected to win the starting role, LeGendre still has a few weeks to win the starting job and learn the new playbook. Either way, he should develop into a key asset for the Terps for seasons to come.
