Happy Hump Day, Terps fans. Here's what's going on, one week before National Signing Day.
Maryland football and recruiting
Maryland three-star quarterback target Tyrrell Pigrome wrapped up some hardware for his high school season at Clay-Chalkville in Alabama.
Tyrrell Pigrome, Fox 6 overall offensive Player of the Year for all Classifications. 2nd year in a row. Congrats Piggy T! #Couglife #tylife— Clay-Chalk Football (@CCHSfootbal) January 26, 2016
More details on Pigrome's win here.
To get Pigrome, Maryland's going to have to beat out Justin Fuente and Virginia Tech. He's rated the No. 32 player in Alabama and the No. 65 athlete in the 2016 class. It's been said (including by some of our most knowledgeable recruiting commenters here) that Fuente wants Pigrome as a slot receiver, not a quarterback. Maryland should hope so, because Fuente's record with quarterbacks like Andy Dalton (from his time at TCU) and Paxton Lynch (Memphis) would make Pigrome a challenging catch for the Terps.
