Legend Brumbaugh will be following in his father’s footsteps and joining the Maryland football program.
After his father Jimmy Brumbaugh elected to come to the Terrapins to coach the defensive line, the younger Brumbaugh announced that he will be transferring to Maryland from Tennessee-Martin. Brumbaugh broke the news on his Twitter account on Wednesday evening.
Brumbaugh was originally a two-star quarterback from Trinity Christian Academy (Fla.), which also produced former Florida signal caller and current New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow. The Sunshine State native was part of Tennessee-Martin’s 2017 recruiting class.
Jimmy Brumbaugh alluded to his son making the move to College Park back in March.
Maryland isn’t exactly hurting when it comes to talented quarterbacks.
During spring practice, North Carolina transfer Caleb Henderson was running the first team offense. Unfortunately, coach D.J. Durkin didn’t get a chance to see what Henderson could do in the Red-White Spring Game due to a minor ankle injury.
Instead, Max Bortenschlager and Tyrrell Pigrome saw all the work in the spring game. Both showed flashes throughout the afternoon, but didn’t do a whole lot to get a leg up on the quarterback competition.
Pigrome played a significant amount of snaps in 2016 in relief of the oft-injured Perry Hills. The freshman signal caller completed 37-of-71 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns and two interceptions.
His dual-threat ability also came into play as he rushed for 254 yards and four touchdowns on 62 carries.
Bortenschlager started the Nebraska game and completed 14-of-29 passes for 191 yards and a touchdown. His numbers were aided by a 92-yard touchdown from star wideout D.J. Moore.
Maryland also has former St. John’s College (D.C.) four-star quarterback Kasim Hill joining the program this summer.
