Terps lose QB Burns-to transfer

January 08, 2013 | WNST Staff

Randy Edsall and the Maryland Terrapins will be very short handed going into spring practice with several of their quarterbacks recovering from season-ending injuries.

But it gets even worse as the news came Tuesday that one of those quarterbacks, 2013 junior Devin Burns, would transfer from the school, a source told InsideMDsports.

Burns, a converted WR who saw action this season in Maryland’s 20-18 loss to NC State, was one of a long list of Terps signal callers to fall to injury in 2012.

Burns suffered a Lisfranc injury, and finished with 70 rushing yards, 47 yards passing, and one touchdown on the ground in three games of action.

This leaves the Maryland football program with six QBs on the roster, including C.J. Brown, Perry Hills, Caleb Rowe, Dustin Dailey, 2012 transfer Ricardo Young, and freshman Shane Cockeville.

Shawn Petty, the converted LB who finished 2012 as the team’s quarterback, will likely take the first team snaps in practice with Brown, Hills, and Rowe all recovering from ACL injuries.
