It’s been a tumultuous 2018 season for the Maryland Terrapins. After Jordan McNair’s death in workouts, head coach DJ Durkin was placed on administrative leave while the university investigated.
A day after reinstating Durkin, Maryland received enough flak from media and Maryland students alike to relieve Durkin of his duties. The Terrapins sit at 5-5 on the season and just lost quarterback Kasim Hill to a torn ACL during the game against Indiana.
On Tuesday night it got worse. The Terrapins lost two of their top recruits from the 2019 class within minutes of each other.
Three-star wide receiver Ahmarean Brown and three-star running back Treshaun Ward both announced their decommitments from Maryland on Tuesday night.

It’s a tough break for the Terrapins. With uncertainty surrounding the future of the program – especially the coaching staff – it’s not surprising to see a few recruits back off their commitments.
While several players have decommitted from the Terrapins, the team did receive a significant commitment earlier this season. The son of Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, Dino, committed to Maryland one week ago.
