Tennessee reportedly adds former Maryland QB Kasim Hill via transfer
Tennessee’s quarterback room just added another talented arm.
Considering the Volunteers don’t have much depth behind Jarrett Guarantano, it makes sense that the program would want to add an arm to the quarterback room and the program has recently done just that with the addition of former Maryland quarterback Kasim Hill, who was the nation’s No. 10 pro-style QB prospect in the 2017 recruiting cycle.
This news was first reported by Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports. Hill entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal this offseason. According to Wiltfong, Hill was at Tennessee’s Wednesday practice.
Hill will have to sit out the 2019 season due to NCAA transfer rules. The former Terrapin started 10 games for Maryland last season before suffering an ACL injury. After sitting out the upcoming season, Hill will have two seasons of eligibility remaining at Tennessee.
The former Maryland signal-caller opened his career with 84 attempts before throwing his first interception. In his first two seasons, which he mostly saw action in only eight games, Hill threw for 1,313 yards with 11 touchdowns and only four interceptions.
Tennessee currently has two freshmen backing up Guarantano, redshirt freshman J.T. Shrout and true freshman Brian Maurer. The Vols also hold a commitment from four-star Georgia signal-caller Harrison Bailey.
