Tyrrell Pigrome’s tenure as Maryland’s starting quarterback was short-lived. Terps head coach DJ Durkin announced Tuesday at his press conference that Pigrome suffered a torn ACL in the team’s 51-41 win over Texas.
Pigrome beat out true freshman Kasim Hill for the starting job in preseason camp, and Hill came in to relieve him after Pigrome came up clutching his knee after a run in the third quarter of Saturday’s game.

Pigrome went 9 for 12 for 175 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Longhorns after throwing a pick-six on his first pass attempt of the day. He also ran for a touchdown, and had 64 yards on the ground.
Hill, a former 4-star recruit from D.C., was 3-for-3 for 44 yards passing in his college debut. He’ll be the starter when Maryland takes the field against Towson this week. Sophomore Max Bortenschlager and junior North Carolina transfer Caleb Henderson, another former 4-star recruit, sit behind Hill on the depth chart.
Durkin also said DE Jesse Aniebonam will be out for “several months” with an ankle injury suffered in the game.
