Former four-star offensive lineman Quarvez Boulware was one of the last big-time commitment pulled in by Randy Edsall.
On Thursday evening, Ahmed Ghafir of InsideMDSports confirmed that Boulware is set to transfer from Maryland.
Boulware came to College Park as a offensive guard with a ton of promise. In 2016, he played in six games and even received the start against Ohio State.
The former Friendship Collegiate Academy (D.C.) standout was rated as the No. 18 offensive guard in the country and the third-best player in the District of Columbia in the 2015 class. He came to Maryland as part of a class that also included wide receiver D.J. Moore and running back Ty Johnson.
During spring camp, junior Sean Christie worked with the first-team offense. Christie saw the field sparingly this past season as he played primarily on special teams.
The Terrapins continue to try and improve an offensive line that struggled at times during the 2016 season. Center Brendan Moore and offensive tackles Terrance Davis and Damian Prince return next fall to help anchor the unit.
D.J. Durkin will be looking to replace Michael Dunn, who is trying to impress NFL teams despite not being invited to the Scouting Combine.
The offensive line is certainly one position that could use some improvement. In 2016, the Terps allowed the most sacks (49) in the Big Ten, which averaged out to 3.8 per contest.
Despite the struggles at times, Maryland still finished fourth in the conference in rushing as they averaged 199.5 yards-per-game and 4.9 yards-per-carry.
Losing a player like Boulware certainly hurts the depth of the unit, but it appears as though Christie is turning some heads so far during spring practice.
