Maryland offers QB with connection to OC's former job at Arkansas St.

Maryland has offered a scholarship to Nicholls State quarterback commit Chase Fourcade, he announced on Monday via his Twitter account.

Fourcade, a 5-11, 180-pound native of Louisiana, has a connection to new Maryland offensive coordinator Walt Bell. Bell comes from Arkansas State, which offered Fourcade and for a time was in contact with him "every day," according to a report in early 2015.

Bell now brings his offensive system to Maryland after it helped Arkansas State put up nearly 50 points per game in Sun Belt play this past season.

Maryland has been left in a bind after four-star quarterback commit Dwayne Haskins flipped his pledge to Ohio State on Monday. They have since offered former Syracuse commit Lindsey Scott, Jr., as well as former Arizona commit Devon Modster -- who then pledged to UCLA -- and Alabama native Ty Pigrome.

Watch highlights of Fourcade below:

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

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.
