Terps QB Report: Observations with decision looming

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland head coach Randy Edsall said Tuesday that the quarterback battle would likely have a resolution by the time his team takes the field Wednesday for an intrasquad scrimmage.

Considering his comments Monday to ESPN 980 and the splitting of reps Tuesday at practice, there seems to be a solid indication of which path he may choose to go.

Here is the full quarterback report from Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2015:

Perry Hills, junior

Edsall said Monday during his radio appearance that his message to Hills, who is said to have the lead in the race for the starting job, is to continue to do what he was doing if he wants to remain in that position.

Tuesday, he did what he has been doing.

Hills wasn’t necessarily brilliant, but he continued to be solid in the short passing game. He does not have the arm strength of some of his counterparts, but that’s not the only attribute the staff has been assessing.

He had two of the nicest passes of practice among the quarterbacks, one a touch pass to Kenny Goins for a touchdown during full 11-on-11 and another a touchdown to tight end Derrick Hayward in the back of the end zone during a red zone drill.

He threw one interception to cornerback Sean Davis.

Daxx Garman, graduate transfer

Edsall said Monday that Garman was a “close second” in the race against Hills and he, too, was solid on Tuesday. The question is if he did enough to overtake Hills.

Garman did not throw an interception, though he came close by once throwing a ball that was dropped by the defender.

Caleb Rowe, fifth-year senior

Rowe has faded back into the third-string spot for now, with Edsall saying that the veteran knows the things that he needs to work on to improve.

Some of the struggles continued early, which included an overthrow and an interception by cornerback Darnell Savage.

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.
