Maryland Football received great news last night when Taulia Tagovailoa announced he chose Maryland as his new school following his leaving Alabama earlier this month. The former Crimson Tie player will have three years of eligibility remaining and will need to seek a waiver to play this season. The Terrapins may have finally gotten a QB that can help them compete at a high level in the Big Ten and it comes at a perfect time as Maryland only has two quarterbacks on its roster this season with transfer Josh Jackson entering his last season of eligibility and sophomore Lance LeGendre being the other QB. Both will compete for the starting job this summer. Maryland has yet to get a commitment from any quarterbacks in the 2021 Recruiting class as well. Can Tua’s younger brother help guide Maryland football back to the promised land? We shall see as the Terrapins play in the always difficult Big Ten East. If Taulia is not eligible to play this coming season Maryland may hope to set a foundation for him and go 6-6 and become bowl eligible for the first time since 2016. That may be a tall order for the Terps but it will build promise for the future if they can attain that goal. I am looking forward to seeing Taulia in a Terps uniform and seeing what he can do.
