Maryland football suffered another loss on Tuesday as sophomore linebacker Cortez Andrews announced his decision to enter the transfer portal.

Andrews had three tackles this season, including two in Maryland’s upset win over Penn State. He joined the Terps as a three-star recruit in the Class of 2019 and saw the field in six games as a freshman, but his playing time declined in 2020.

Andrews is the second player in two days to enter the portal, joining cornerback Tahj Capehart. Capehart was recruited as a three-star wide receiver but transitioned to a defensive role early in his college career. He totaled 13 tackles and one sack as a Terp.

The losses shouldn’t affect Maryland too much, especially given its talented young defensive core and a loaded 2021 class.

In other transfer news, Nebraska wide receiver Marcus Fleming is headed to College Park. Fleming, a former four-star recruit, only played in two games as a freshman before leaving the Huskers’ program, but he had a promising 75-yard outing on five receptions against Northwestern.
