A graduate of Timber Creek High School in Orlando, Florida, Jarrell did not appear in a game during his time with the Terrapins program.
On the heels of a 3-9 season in Mike Locksley’s first year at the helm, Jarrell becomes the fourth Maryland player to enter the transfer portal in the last week. Junior twin brother defensive tackles Brandon and Breyon Gaddy entered the portal on December 2, while redshirt sophomore defensive back Fofie Bazzie placed his name in the pool on December 3.
Experiencing great success as a member of Nick Saban’s staff at Alabama from 2016-18, Locksley has yet to find that winning touch as a head coach. Overseeing the New Mexico Lobos’ program from 2009-11 and previously serving as the Terrapins’ interim coach for six games in 2015, he has posted a total record of just 6-40.
To put this mark in perspective, 2019’s 3-9 campaign was actually Locksley’s best season as a head coach. He went 1-11 in each of his two full seasons in Albuquerque.
