Maryland lands ex-West Virginia LB out of the transfer portal
Maryland is still looking to add depth and talent to the program after landing the first bowl game of Mike Locksley’s tenure.
On Saturday, the Terrapins did just that by landing a linebacker via transfer out of the Big 12. VanDarius Cowan, a linebacker for West Virginia, announced his commitment to the Terps via the portal:
“Thank you Maryland for giving me an opportunity to come home and finish the journey I started so long ago,” wrote Cowan on Twitter. “Let’s get it Terp Nation!”
There were moves to be made so I made them 😈❤️💯 #TBIA pic.twitter.com/H7GM8cBmY1
