02/13/19 - (QB) - Kasim Hill, rFr, 6-2, 234 Kasim Hill, Maryland's starting quarterback through much of the 2018 season, announced on Twitter that he has entered his name into the NCAA's transfer portal as he considers other schools to complete his college career. With Hill putting his name in the database, other schools will know he is interested in transferring, and those programs are allowed to contact him. "I have not made any final decisions on leaving Maryland and my decision to enter the portal is not a criticism of the University or of the staff," Hill tweeted Friday, adding that he was making his announcement to avoid the news coming out via media reports. He wrote that he was "sharing this information to try to prevent speculation and rumors from spreading about this decision." Hill, a rising junior, wrote that he and his family had contemplated a transfer with both the previous staff and the Terps' new staff under Coach Michael Locksley. As a sophomore last season, Hill started the first 10 games before tearing his left ACL against Indiana on Nov. 10. Backup quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome finished the season as the starter. Hill tore his right ACL in 2017. - Emily Giambalvo, The Washington Post
11/14/18 - (QB) - Kasim Hill, rFr, 6-2, 234 During a harsh season in which the Maryland football team has been forced to deal with an array of setbacks - none worse than the death of player Jordan McNair - the Terrapins have repeatedly showed their resiliency. With No. 9 Ohio State next on the schedule, Maryland has yet another obstacle to overcome. Interim coach Matt Canada announced Tuesday that starting quarterback Kasim Hill tore the ACL in his left knee during last week's game at Indiana, making this the second straight season he's had cut short by an ACL tear. "It's very disappointing. Obviously, there are no words to say to make it any better," Canada said. "Great kid, a kid who worked so hard to battle his way back. He will again." A year ago, Hill tore his right ACL in the third game of his freshman season. Now, he's got to deal with surgery and rehabilitation for a second time. Hill posted on Instagram : "Never thought I'd have to attack this process all over again, but the Lord has more adversity for me to overcome." Hill started all 10 games this season. He threw for 1,083 yards and nine touchdowns with four interceptions. - AP College Football

The family posted their belief on a website for a foundation, whose goals are to "promote awareness, educate and advocate for parents and student-athletes about heat-related illnesses at youth, high school and collegiate levels.
In the section outlining what the foundation is, the family wrote:
"Jordan's untimely death was the result of a heatstroke he suffered during an organized offseason team workout.
McNair was hospitalized on May 29 following an organized team workout, that included 10 110-yard-sprints.
He died on June 13 and Maryland announced it was conducting an internal investigation following the death of the 19-year-old.
The 6-foot-4, 235-pound McNair played in one game as a true freshman in 2017 and was expected to be a key contributor in 2018.
According to the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research, there were 145 cases of heatstroke related deaths in football players at all levels from 1960 to 2017, with 90 percent of deaths occurring during practices.

Dr. Rod Walters was hired to conduct a review into the death. Walters, a sports medicine consultant who oversaw athletic training at Appalachian State and South Carolina, will begin the review this week.
The 19-year-old McNair was hospitalized on May 29 following a team workout that included 10 110-yards sprints, and he died on June 13. The cause of McNair's death and even when he began experiencing difficulties have not been released.

03/06/18 - (WR) - *DJ Moore, Jr, 6-0, 210 2018 NFL Combine Winners: D.J. Moore, WR, Maryland...Entering the Combine as the No. 2 wide receiver (behind Calvin Ridley) on my draft board, Moore came in taller and faster than expected. Listed at 5-11 on the Maryland roster, he measured at 6-feet exactly and turned in a blazing 4.42 40-yard dash. Moore also impressed in the vertical (39.5 inches), broad jump (11 feet), three-cone (6.95 seconds) and short shuttle (4.07 seconds). He went from a second-round pick to a possible first-round pick. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/03/18 - (WR) - *DJ Moore, Jr, 6-0, 210 2018 NFL Combine, Saturday: Maryland's D.J. Moore entered the NFL Scouting Combine as my second-ranked receiver prospect in the draft. And he'll leave the Combine as my No. 2 receiver prospect in the draft, behind Alabama's Calvin Ridley. Except now, the Moore bandwagon is much more crowded. After Moore measured at 6-feet (a full two inches taller than expected), he continued to impress during the athletic testing drills on Saturday. He finished fifth among wide receivers in the 40-yard dash (4.42 seconds), second in the vertical (39.5 inches) and first in the broad jump (11 feet). When I talked with Moore on Friday, he predicted "anything under 4.5" for his 40-yard dash, and he certainly hit that goal. His lack of height and speed were the main questions entering this week. "Some of the questions are going to be answered," Moore said. "I answered a big one with my height. I'm just going to keep on answering them and check off the boxes." Size? Check. Speed? Check. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/03/18 - (WR) - *DJ Moore, Jr, 6-0, 210 2018 NFL Combine, Saturday: A three-year starter at Maryland, Moore inherited the No. 1 jersey from Stefon Diggs and developed into the "X" receiver in the offense. He has impressive college production considering the constant quarterback issues for the Terrapins, catching a pass from eight different quarterbacks in the past three years. Moore set a school-record with 80 catches in 2017 and became just the third player in program history to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards in a season -- and the first since Torrey Smith in 2010. Resume and production? Check. A balanced, explosive athlete, Moore is a tough assignment for any cornerback, considering his speed to stretch the field and yards-after-the-catch skills to take simple underneath targets and turn them into big plays. He has an average catch radius, but he doesn't play small and his football character and work ethic, especially in the weight room, are universally praised. Overall, Moore has a NFL skill-set with his speed, physical presence and instincts. His film gives off a Steve Smith vibe. Tape? Emphatic check. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/03/18 - (WR) - *DJ Moore, Jr, 6-0, 210 2018 NFL Combine, Saturday: After measuring in bigger and more explosive than expected, Maryland wide receiver DJ Moore has been one of the bright spots of the Combine. Throughout most of the Friday's workout, Moore also looked the part of a potential top 40 pick. However, he did fail to track and haul on a couple of passes thrown over his shoulder, including one particularly well-thrown post-corner by Shimonek. With so much of his production at Maryland derived from quick screens and underneath routes, scouts will be looking for improvement by Moore in this area at his Pro Day. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftscout.com
02/27/18 - (WR) - *DJ Moore, Jr, 6-0, 210 2018 NFL Combine: Prospects Who Need to Measure Up: DJ Moore, WR, Maryland...Listed at 5-11 by the Terps, Moore is closer to 5-10 and might be a hair below that. Height might be the only thing keeping Moore from the first round. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/19/17 - (WR) - *DJ Moore, Jr, 6-0, 210 Maryland record-breaking receiver DJ Moore will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft. Moore was selected first-team All-Big Ten after setting a school record with 80 catches for 1,033 yards. He also scored eight touchdowns. Moore ends his Maryland career with 146 receptions, fifth-most in school history. His 17 TD catches rank fourth, and he is only the fifth Terrapin to amass more than 2,000 yards receiving. Maryland coach DJ Durkin says, "We'll miss him as a member of our team, but could not be more proud to have him represent us in the NFL." Moore excelled in 2017 even though Maryland used five quarterbacks and finished 4-8. He says, "I have had an incredible three years playing for the Terps and I will truly miss playing in front of our fans." - AP College Football

12/15/17 - (CB) - Darnell Savage Jr., Sr, 5-11, 199 2017 ALL-BIG TEN HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): Darnell Savage Jr.,...Savage ended the year tied with Jackson for the team lead in interceptions (3), which ranked tied for seventh in the Big Ten.

11/30/17 - (WR) - *DJ Moore, Jr, 6-0, 210 2017 BIG TEN RICHTER-HOWARD RECEIVER OF THE YEAR (COACHES/MEDIA): DJ Moore, Maryland...Also a First Team All-Big Ten honoree, Moore led the league with a single-season school record 80 receptions and 1,033 receiving yards.

11/02/17 - (RB) - Ty Johnson, Sr, 5-10, 213 RB Ty Johnson is fourth in the Big Ten in rushing with 82.8 yards per game, and his 6.8 yards per rush also ranks among conference leaders. After going for over 100 yards in three of the first four games, the speedy Johnson hasn't topped the century mark the last four contests, though he had 91 yards against Indiana, and 83 the previous week at Wisconsin. Johnson hasn't had a rushing score in four games but he did go 100 yards on a KO return at Ohio State.
10/28/17 - (RB) - Jake Funk, Jr, 5-10, 202 Maryland overcame a two-touchdown deficit to secure a wild 42-39 win over Big Ten Conference foe Indiana on Saturday at College Park, Md. The victory snapped a three-game losing streak and helped keep alive the Terrapins' bowl hopes. Running back Jake Funk ran for two short second-half scores. He scored from 1 yard out on the first play of the fourth quarter to put the Terrapins (4-4, 2-3) ahead 35-33 and added another 1-yard dive with 10:14 remaining. Indiana freshman Peyton Ramsey completed 31 of 44 passes for 279 yards before he was knocked out of the game. He was sacked five times by the beleaguered Maryland defense, last in the Big Ten in scoring and passing defense. The Hoosiers (3-5, 0-5) dropped their third straight conference game and remained winless in the Big Ten. Indiana senior quarterback Richard Lagow came off the bench to lead a 74-yard touchdown drive, hitting Simmie Cobbs for a 5-yard score with 8:09 remaining to make it 42-39. Chandler Burkett blocked the point after attempt, one of several big special teams plays for the Terrapins. - The Sports Xchange
