After having three defensive stars selected in the NFL Draft over the weekend, Maryland was dealt a devastating blow on Sunday.
Logan missed the 2015 season with a torn ACL and hasn’t played a ton at Maryland, despite being a highly regarded recruit during Randy Edsall‘s tenure.
In 2013 as a true freshman, Logan registered 37 tackles (22 solo) and a fumble recovery in eight games for the Terrapins. His best game came against Clemson where he tallied 15 tackles (seven solo).
As was mentioned above, Logan was likely going to be a starter alongside fellow linebackers Jalen Brooks and Jermaine Carter. Carter led the team with 103 tackles (66 solo) in his first full season as Maryland’s starting middle linebacker.
With Logan now leaving the program, it leaves a big question mark as to who will be Maryland’s third starter at the linebacker position.
Burke registered eight tackles (six solo) and a forced fumble during the 2015 season. On the other hand, Little used a redshirt year in 2015 and hasn’t played since coming to Maryland.
It would make sense for Maryland to go with Burke as the starter, barring any unforeseen circumstances. Brett Zanotto could also be an option if coach D.J. Durkin elects to make him over to the SAM linebacker spot.
