Rivals.com Q&A: Post-Haskins, what is Maryland's outlook at QB?

Dwayne Haskins is officially an Ohio State Buckeye, flipping his commitment from Maryland and forcing the Terrapins to make a late audible in the class of 2016.

So now they end up with two new quarterbacks, dual-threat Alabama native Tyrrell Pigrome and Buffalo flip Max Bortenschlager. 

While Maryland has three other full-time quarterbacks on the roster -- Caleb Rowe, Perry Hills, and Gage Shaffer -- Pigrome is intriguing. Seeming to be a perfect fit for offensive coordinator Walt Bell's run-spread system, the ceiling seems high.

I sat down with Adam Friedman of Rivals.com to talk about the fit and what we can expected from the Alabama Gatorade Player of the Year.

“He was certainly a guy they targeted early on right after Haskins decommitted and they obviously had a good eye on it before Haskins officially flipped," Friedman said, "but he’s someone that they think can run the system well.

"He’s certainly a very smart quarterback. His only limitation are his measurables, but once he comes in, understands this system, really meshes with the players here, I think he’ll turn into a pretty fine quarterback.”

Watch more in the video player above, where Friedman also touches on Bortenschlager and Ramar Williams -- a local QB and now-Navy signee who Maryland took a look at before ultimately going in a different direction.

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.

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.
