Reports: Former 4-star to transfer from Virginia Tech to Maryland

Virginia Tech running back Trey Edmunds will transfer to Maryland and is expected to be immediately eligible for the Terrapins in 2016, according to multiple reports on Wednesday.

Edmunds, who was rated as a four-star linebacker prospect coming out of high school, saw the most significant playing time of his career as a freshman running back with the Hokies. In 2013, he carried the ball 166 times for 675 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Injuries and the progression of other options in the running game made his usage dip over the past two seasons. In 2015, he had 47 carries for 185 yards and three touchdowns.

MORE TERPS: NEW MARYLAND ASSISTANT MORE THAN JUST RECRUITER

Edmunds is the son of former Terrapins great Ferrell Edmunds, who starred as a tight end in College Park during the 1980s. He was drafted in the third round of the 1988 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins and would go on to make two Pro Bowl appearances.

Maryland has utilized the graduate transfer rule in the past, including bringing in backup quarterback Daxx Garman from Oklahoma State in 2015.

The Terrapins will need help at the running back position. Three-year starter Brandon Ross has expended his eligibility and fellow running back Wes Brown is suspended indefinitely.

Also in the backfield is sophomore-to-be Ty Johnson, who saw time as a freshman this past season. Maryland has three running backs committed from its 2016 class -- Lorenzo Harrison, Jake Funk, and new three-star commit LaDarrien Wilson.

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.
