With the season officially over for Maryland football, offseason news is officially starting to roll in. Offensive linemen Marcus Minor and Johnny Jordan, defensive back Antwaine Richardson and defensive lineman Cherokee Glasgow all entered the transfer portal Monday.
Minor, a former consensus four-star recruit, started 10 games at right tackle as a redshirt sophomore in 2019 before shifting over to guard for this season. He appeared in three of the Terps’ five games in 2020, a season that will not be counted as a part of his eligibility due to the NCAA’s rule change. After recently graduating from the university, Minor will be eligible right away as a graduate transfer.
Antwaine Richardson was a key factor at safety since he first arrived on campus in 2016. It was an adversity-filled Terps career for Richardson, who missed the entirety of the 2019 season with a torn ACL.
After tallying 10 starts as a junior in 2018, Richardson was hard-pressed for playing time this past season, only starting two of the Terps’ five games. Despite that, Richardson tallied 18 solo tackles in 2020, including a career-best eight at Indiana this past November. Richardson will have immediate eligibility as a graduate transfer.
Cherokee Glasgow, a junior, totaled five tackles this past season for the Terps. A junior college product out of Lackawanna College, Glasgow previously played for Mount Vernon High School in New York. At 6-foot-2, 280 pounds, Glasgow will have at least two years of eligibility remaining as he searches for his next destination.
Perhaps the biggest departure for the Terps is starting center Johnny Jordan. Earning an All-Big Ten Honorable Mention in 2020, Jordan has been a consistent piece on the offensive line for the last three seasons.
He started 16 games during his Maryland career and helped pave the way for current NFL running backs Anthony McFarland and Javon Leake. With the departure of Jordan, Maryland will now need to replace two starting offensive linemen. Jordan will be eligible right away as a graduate transfer.
