Maryland adding FCS QB to roster via transfer portal
An FCS level quarterback has decided to continue his career at Maryland.
Sunday, Virginia Military Institute (VMI) quarterback Reece Udinski announced on Twitter that he will be transferring to Maryland to finish out his college football career. However, he still plans to play for VMI during the 2021 spring season.
The FCS level moved its championship to the spring 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Udinski has played in 31 career games for the Keydets, throwing nearly 1,100 passes over the last three seasons. He’s piled up 6,790 yards through the air and 41 touchdown tosses with 25 interceptions. But the QB showed massive improvement from 2018 to 2019.
In 2018, Udinski had 20 touchdowns with 16 interceptions and completed 58% of his passes. But in 2019, he ended the season with 19 touchdown passes with just 5 picks and saw his completion rate improve to 64%.
The Terrapins have Taulia Tagovailoa returning as the starter for the 2021 season but lost backup Lance LeGendre to the transfer portal. Udinski will provide Maryland with depth and experience at the position.
VMI is scheduled to begin its season on Saturday, Feb. 20 and will play Chattanooga in the spring opener. The Keydets currently have eight games on the schedule for the spring season.
