Just one day after starting his first collegiate game, Maryland has announced quarterback Caleb Rowe suffered a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season.
Rowe, a freshman from Landrum, SC, went 23 of 40 for 240 yards in Maryland’s 20-17 loss to Boston College. He also threw his first collegiate touchdown pass.
Rowe’s injury is just the latest blow the Terrapins have suffered at the quarterback position. CJ Brown, Perry Hills and now Rowe have torn their ACL’s , and sophomore Devin Burns was diagnosed with a Lisfranc injury in his left foot that knocked him out for the rest of the year.
In a statement released by the school, Maryland coach Randy Edsall expressed his remorse over Rowe’s injury. “I feel awful for Caleb. I know how excited he was to get his opportunity to be the quarterback of this team,” said Edsall. “Caleb has a bright future ahead of him and we will do everything we can to support him through the rehab process.”
While no official announcement has been made, Rowe’s backup Shawn Petty figures to start next week against Georgia Tech. However, the 6-foot-1, 230-pound Petty is normally a linebacker and has not played quarterback since high school.
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.
