    Tawo is listed at 6-foot-1, 200 pounds on the Maryland Athletics website. During his three year Maryland career, he caught 61 total passes for 938 yards and three touchdowns. Etta-Tawo only had one 100-yard receiving performance, which ironically came against Syracuse during the 2013 season

    All right!

    The receiving corps gets a much needed shot in the arm. I think we're going to see a LOT more WRs want to come here once they see the system that Babers implements here.

    Maryland Wide Receiver Amba Etta-Tawo Set to Transfer

    Maryland wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo announced on Tuesday evening that he will transfer and finish his football career elsewhere. He told InsideMDSports.com he plans to graduate from Maryland in May and look to play at another school immediately as a graduate transfer.

    Etta-Tawo, a Georgia native, made starts in each of the past three seasons for the Terps, totaling 61 catches for 938 yards and three touchdowns. His most productive season came in 2013 as a redshirt freshmen, when he caught 31 passes for 500 yards and two touchdowns.


    At 6-foot-1 with speed, Etta-Tawo proved to be a big play threat but was never able to stay on the field consistently and struggled at times with drops. He committed to the Terps as a three-star recruit back in 2012 over Clemson, Georgia Tech, N.C. State and Vanderbilt.

    Maryland is expected to return the rest of its wide receiver unit from last season. In addition to key returnees Levern Jacobs, Taivon Jacobs, D.J. Moore, DeAndre Lane, Malcolm Culmer and Jahrvis Davenport, the Terps also bring in four-star recruits Tino Ellis and D.J Turner. Etta-Tawo lost his starting spot to Moore, a promising rising sophomore, two games into last season..

    Has a repuatation for dropping balls but he can help us with depth and his combination of size and speed. He still can make the spectacular play. We can use that. I expect his senior year to be his best despite learning a new system.

    We desperately need someone who can stretch the field in this offense. Our only burner per say is Estime, and he is really a slot guy. This is a good fit for Babers' offense remind you. He wouldn't be that effective in Lester's.

    You're not going to put up great numbers if you have trouble catching the ball.
