NCAA Football: Syracuse at Maryland Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland football senior wide receiver Dontay Demus Jr. and tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo were named to the 2022 Reese’s Senior Bowl Watch List.

The Reese’s Senior Bowl is a college football all-star game that takes place after the season. It is an opportunity for players to showcase their talents in front of NFL scouts against some of the best competition in the country.

Demus Jr. is expected to be the Terps' top offensive weapon on the outside and was named to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List, given to the top receiver in the country. Demus Jr. led the team in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns last season.

Okonkwo missed all of last season due to medical reasons but has been prolific in his time on the field for Maryland thus far. In 24 games, Okonkwo has scored six touchdowns for the Terps.

The Powder Springs, Georgia native ranked second on the team in receptions and third in receiving yards during his sophomore year. Maryland is hoping Okonkwo can play a huge role in the Terps offense this season.
