Former Terp throws OL to ground like rag doll at Colts practice

Defensive tackle Zach Kerr played two seasons at Maryland before he was declared academically ineligible and left the program in 2011. He would then transfer to Delaware where he would finish his college career before going undrafted and signing with the Indianapolis Colts in May 2014.

Now he's making plays in training camp. The team tweeted out the video and GIF below this week, which shows Kerr blowing up offensive lineman David Arkin in a drill.

Not bad.

Kerr was solid for the Colts during his rookie year in 2014, registering 16 tackles and three sacks. His role may even be expanded in 2015, being that two players in Indianapolis' regular rotation on the line have gone elsewhere, including new Redskins signee Ricky Jean Francois.

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Going into the 2018 NBA Combine, Kevin Huerter was not receiving much hype, was off many NBA Draft boards, and many assumed he was heading back to college anyways.

Playing in the first scrimmage of the combine process, all those storylines quickly changed.

Playing against players like Jacob Evans, Donte DiVincenzo, Udoka Azubuike, and Jevon Carter, Huerter emerged as one of the top stars. The two-year Maryland spot-up shooter saw 25 minutes of action and only trailed Penn State prospect Tony Carr in points on his squad.

With 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 three-pointers), Huerter showed development since he was last seen with the Terps. His passing was the biggest asset for his team and was not afraid to take a shot against these top defenders.  The 6-7 forward also added three rebounds, an assist, and had only one turnover.

Although his shooting in-game was not fantastic, in the individual drills he showed off.  Of the seven shooting marks, he ranked in the top five in five of them.  He also had the best shuttle run (2.96 seconds).

No question, Huerter’s draft stock significantly rose. Although still early, he is looking to be the highest rated Terp prospect this year over Justin Jackson and Bruno Fernando.

Consensus among those at the NBA Combine seems to believe that Huerter will return for his junior season at Maryland.

After today though, it may be hard to say no.
