Maryland’s Week 1 opponent will be without at least two of its players.

Brian Davis of the Austin American-Statesman reports that Texas LB Ayodele Adeoye and DB DeMarvion Overshown will both miss the Sept. 1 game due to knee injuries. He says the long-term statuses of the two freshmen defenders are not yet known.

Adeoye, out of the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., was ranked the No. 6 inside linebacker of the 2018 class by the 247Sport Composite. Overshown, from Arp, Texas, was ranked the No. 6 safety in the class. Both players had scholarship offers from multiple B1G schools (but not Maryland) as recruits.

Maryland defeated Texas last season 51-41 in Austin to kickoff the 2017 campaign. This year’s game will be played at FedEx Field.
