COLLEGE PARK -- Following Maryland’s 28-0 loss to Michigan on Saturday, head coach Randy Edsall announced that two players would be lost for the remainder of the 2015 season due to injury.
Linebacker Jefferson Ashiru (ankle) and defensive lineman David Shaw (elbow) will both undergo surgery to repair their respective injuries and will not play again this year.
In addition, freshman linebacker Brett Zanotto will miss, in Edsall’s words, “a little bit” after he injured his ankle on Saturday.

Ashiru came to Maryland from Connecticut as a graduate transfer, choosing to spend his final year of eligibility with the Terrapins. Over the past few games, the veteran seemed to do his part to add some sort of stability to a young and injured unit.
Zanotto, in his first season, has been pushed into more of a role as a contributor with the injuries and losses on the defensive side of the ball.
Shaw, a sophomore, was actually injured last Saturday against West Virginia and was ruled out against Michigan.
He was another player who had been expected to fill the void up front after major turnover due to graduation last season. He registered six tackles in four games played.
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.
D.J. Moore has an adorable new puppy!
Days after the Carolina Panthers selected Moore as the No. 24 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the former Maryland wide receiver returned to his roots and paid a visit to College Park.
But the first-rounder wasn’t alone when he went to Maryland. According to the Terps’ football Twitter account, he brought his new puppy with him. Seriously, look at this puppy!

The Big Ten Receiver of the Year in 2017, Moore was obviously a crucial component of the Terps’ offense. He finished the season with 80 catches — a Maryland single-season record, which was also a Big Ten high.
He declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season with Maryland.
