It was announced Thursday that Oklahoma State quarterback Daxx Garman has decided to transfer to Maryland for the 2015 season. As a grad transfer, Garman will be able to play immediately for the Terrapins this season.
Maryland’s athletic site, UMTerps.com, released a statement confirming the transfer:
“We are excited that Daxx will be joining our program,” Edsall said. “He is an experienced quarterback who has proven himself as an accomplished starter in the Big 12, helping to lead his team to a postseason bowl game. Daxx is an outstanding student who has displayed tremendous poise and maturity during his college career. He comes in knowing he is competing for the starting quarterback position and is looking forward to the competition and being part of our football family.”
The Southlake, Texas, native played his best game of the season in the Cowboys’ Big 12 opener against Texas Tech, throwing for 370 yards and four touchdowns and running for a score to lead Oklahoma State to a 45-35 victory.
Garman is coming off a season that saw him play in nine games (eight of which he started) and accumulate 2,041 passing yards, while throwing 12 touchdowns (also throwing 12 interceptions). This is Garman’s third school, as he started his college career with Arizona.
After losing C.J. Brown, Garman will compete with Caleb Rowe for the right to be starter at quarterback for the Terps. The Terps are coming off a season that saw them go 7-6 and 4-4 in their first year in the Big Ten. Maryland opens up their season with Richmond at home on September 5.
