Maryland has officially added two transfer players to the roster.
Former Virginia Tech quarterback Josh Jackson and ex-Buffalo tight end Tyler Mabry have officially joined the Terrapins’ roster for the 2019 season. Both players will be immediately eligible for the fall, as they have earned their degrees.

Jackson will have two years of eligibility remaining while Mabry has just one left. Both are expected to make a quick impact under first-year head coach Mike Locksley.
Jackson was the starting quarterback at Virginia Tech in 2017, throwing for 2,991 yards and rushing for 324 more. He accounted for 26 total touchdowns for the Hokies. Jackson started the first three games last fall, but suffered a season-ending injury.
Mabry brings plenty of experience to College Park as well, having appeared in 38 career games with 29 starts. Last season, he caught 27 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns. He’s also gained a reputation as a quality blocker at the position.
