Four-star Maryland quarterback commit Dwayne Haskins could take visits in January to both Texas A&M and LSU, according to a report earlier this week from ESPN.com.
While in Orlando for the Under Armour All-America Game, which takes place on Jan. 2, he was asked about the A&M factor by Rivals.com national recruiting analyst Mike Farrell.
The quarterback situation at A&M has been rocky, with both Kyler Murray and Kyle Allen transferring out of the program. That presents an interesting situation for a player like Haskins. Though committed to Maryland, the Aggies could present the same sort of immediate playing time that the Terrapins offer.
Are those two transfers a positive because of the opportunity to play immediately, or are they red flags for a quarterback coming in, Farrell asked Haskins.
“I’m not quite sure,” Haskins said. “I want to see what it’s all about, why are guys leaving, what’s going on at A&M. Definitely an opportunity to go play right away, but it’s just definitely a question mark of why’s everyone going.”
But amidst all the talk about other visits for Haskins, there are bits that would hint at a positive outlook for the future of Haskins at Maryland. More from a separate piece by Farrell:
Maryland needs him the most and that’s probably where he stays, but I often say that about any home state kid when it comes to a program’s need.
