This type of improvement is essential to the future of the Maryland football program. Head coach D.J. Durkin is known as a master recruiter. If he can translate his recruitment of blue-chip athletes into wins, it will make Maryland football relevant once more. Bringing the team back to it’s winning ways helped last season, although the team finished with a losing record (6-7 overall, 3-6 in the Big Ten). They did reach a bowl game, however.

They also had a few late commitments to the program in Tahj Capehart and Corrdarian Richardson Jr.
