Running back Trey Edmunds is leaving Virginia Tech for Maryland in hopes of closing out his collegiate career with a bang, according to a report from Norm Wood of The Baltimore Sun.
Edmunds, a former three-star recruit from the Danville, Virginia area, got off to a hot start at Virginia Tech and ran for 675 yards and 10 touchdowns as a redshirt freshman, but never took a step forward due to injuries. He leaves Blacksburg with 957 yards and 13 touchdowns to his name.
And now Edmunds heads to a program where his family has history. His father, Ferrell, played tight end for the Terps before going on to play seven NFL seasons and make two Pro Bowls.
“He graduated last semester and he said he wanted to move on and try something different,” said Ferrell Edmunds. “I’m always supportive of him.”
Edmunds will be immediately eligible to play under first-year coach and former Michigan defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin, who should implement a run-oriented offense. So long as Edmunds is able to stay on the field and off the trainer’s table, look for him to make quite the impact in College Park in 2016.
