The Taulia Tagovailoa-Rakim Jarrett combination at Maryland is already turning some heads
The Taulia Tagovailoa-to-Rakim Jarrett combination is already getting some attention at Maryland. Fall camp may not officially be underway just yet, but the QB-WR duo are turning some heads in College Park.
With the B1G season reinstated and Tagovailoa receiving an immediate eligibility waiver from the NCAA, Terrapin fans won’t have to wait long to see the talented quarterback and 5-star wide receiver on the field. And if some of their practice highlights translate to game day, Mike Locksley may enjoy some serious improvement in his second year as head coach.
Below is a clip from a Maryland practice, with Tagovailoa and Jarrett connecting on an impressive deep pass play. It’s getting plenty of attention on social media:

The addition of Tagovailoa and Jarrett is huge for Maryland’s offense. While the Terps got off to a hot start last season, scoring 142 points in wins over Howard and Syracuse, the offense cooled off as the season progressed. Maryland ended the year 11th in total offense in the B1G, 12th in passing offense and 11th in scoring.
Having the ability to stretch the field should be a huge advantage for the Terrapins in 2020. They lacked that ability last season, allowing teams to focus in on the ground attack.
Maryland is scheduled to open the season against Northwestern.
