Maryland adds Virginia Tech transfer
Maryland athletics announced on Friday that the program added transfers Melvin Keihn, a defensive end from Virginia Tech, and Towson placekicker Daniel Sutton.
Keihn and Sutton will both have to sit out a season before they are eligible in 2016.
Keihn requested a release from Virginia Tech at the end of July and announced his future plans this week. The backup played in all 13 games as a freshman, but mostly on special teams.
The former Under Armour All-American had two seasons in his reserve role last season. He’ll have three years of eligibility left.
Sutton will be a redshirt sophomore at the start of the 2016 season. The Terps return senior Brad Craddock, who won the Lou Groza award last year as the nation’s top kicker.
Keihn tweeted this yesterday upon receiving word he was admitted into the school:
