Former Maryland QB, 4-star prospect heading to Group of 5 program
Lance LeGendre spent just two seasons at Maryland before deciding to enter his name into the transfer portal. Now, the former 4-star recruit has found a new school to call home.
Thursday evening, LeGendre revealed that he has committed to play at the University of Louisiana. He made the announcement with a post on social media, and will be a huge addition for a Ragin’ Cajuns team that made a big splash on the national stage during the 2020 campaign.
LeGendre played in just three games for the Terrapins last season, completing 11-of-14 passes for 91 yards, but he had 2 interceptions with no touchdown passes and had -11 yards in the rushing category. He lost the starting job to Alabama transfer Taulia Tagovialoa prior to the start of the year.

In 2019, LeGendre’s true freshman season, he totaled 13 carries for 104 yards and completed 1-of-3 pass attempts for 7 yards.
As a high school prospect, LeGendre was a 4-star gunslinger who spurned Florida State to commit to Maryland. He was ranked as the No. 9 dual-threat quarterback and was a Top 300 prospect overall, according to 247Sports.
LeGendre is a New Orleans native, so his commitment to Louisiana will serve as a homecoming or the quarterback. And he’ll join a team that opened the 2020 season with a 17-point victory over Iowa State in Ames.
The Ragin’ Cajuns finished the year with a 10-1 record and ranked No. 19 in the College Football Playoff Poll.
