Maryland added quarterback Ricardo Young on Thursday, the Terrapins’ third transfer of the offseason from New Mexico.
Young will sit out this season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Young began his career with a redshirt season at Virginia Tech in 2010, then transferred to New Mexico for the 2011 season. He spent this spring at Iowa Western Community College.
Like wideout Daniel Adams and defensive back Zach Dancel, Young was recruited to New Mexico by then-Lobos coach Mike Locksley, who is now Maryland’s offensive coordinator.
Young gives Maryland four scholarship quarterbacks available to at least practice this season. The Terps will start junior C.J. Brown, and also add freshmen Perry Hills and Caleb Rowe as part of their signing class.
