Every Big Ten East Division team’s biggest question after spring football

Spring Football has come to an end, and the East division has stolen all the attention, but did all the questions get answered?



Maryland Terrapins

Who is the Starting Quarterback?

It may feel like a broken record in College Park, Md., but the Terps program can only go as far as its quarterback will take it. That much became obvious last season when teams just loaded up against the run and dared Maryland to throw the football on them.

This spring saw rising sophomore¬†Tyrrell Pigrome and junior Caleb Henderson battling it out with the majority of first-team reps. Henderson seemed to have a slight edge coming out of spring camp, but even the small number of fans (seriously Terps fans, this was the best you could do?) on hand wouldn’t have known that as he sat out the spring game with a slight ankle injury.

Pigrome struggled in the spring game, going just 6 of 14 for 70 yards and one touchdown to one interception. His INT illustrated just how much growth was needed, as he underthrew an open receiver and was picked off by safety Antonie Brooks.

However, the good news there is that this battle was never going to be fully decided until the fall. That’s what happens when you get the arrival of local star and highly touted quarterback¬†Kasim Hill in the fold. Expecting Hill to come in and win the job in such a short span may be a bit much, but that is the talent level he put on film in his career at St. John’s College High School.

No matter what Hill does or doesn’t do, the spring highlighted that no one had won the battle amongst the three that were in the fold. Figuring out a winner at quarterback quickly will go a long way towards helping this offense grow under Walt Bell. Can that actually happen though?
