In nothing short of a cruel twist of fate, Oklahoma State graduate transfer Daxx Garman appears to be entering the season ranked third on Maryland’s quarterback depth chart.
Per John Taylor of NBC Sports’ College Football Talk, Maryland released a depth chart yesterday, well ahead of the team’s September 5 season opener against Richmond. Junior Perry Hills was listed as the starter, followed by Caleb Rowe and then Garman, who is in his final season of eligibility.
That said, barring a major change, it’s looking like a rough end of the road for Garman. He started his college career at Arizona, then transferred to Oklahoma State. He started eight games for the Cowboys last season and threw for 2,041 yards and 12 touchdowns before suffering a concussion in November. Since his backup, Mason Rudolph, impressed enough over the rest of the season and in the spring to basically snatch the starting job away, Garman transferred to Maryland.
And now he finds himself fighting for playing time again. Perhaps if he had stayed in Stillwater, he could have potentially won his job back, but that is sadly no longer an option.
Barring injuries to Hills and Rowe, or a sudden change of heart by Terps coach Randy Edsall, it’s looking like Garman will finish his college career on the bench.
