Amba Etta-Tawo has found a graduate transfer destination, as the Maryland wide receiver is headed to Syracuse, according to Scout.com's Mike McAllister.

The wideout finishes his Maryland career with 61 catches for 938 yards and three touchdowns in three seasons.

Per Scout, Syracuse didn't waste any time reaching out to Etta-Tawo:

Etta-Tawo came onto Syracuse's radar immediately after he announced his transfer plans. Syracuse expressed interest, set up a visit, and were able to seal the deal. Etta-Tawo was on campus for that visit March 9th and 10th, according to a source.

Etta-Tawo announced his intention to transfer on March 1 via Twitter.

Etta-Tawo's only career 100-yard game came against Syracuse, McAllister points out.

He was a two-star recruit out of Georgia, and while he was a contributor to the receiving corps every season after his redshirt freshman year, Etta-Tawo could never carve out of permanent role in the offense.
