Eleven Terps selected to East-West Shrine Bowl 1000 list

With fall camp less than two weeks away, several Maryland veterans have found themselves on preseason watch lists with safety Beau Brade drawing continuous praise. This week, Maryland had eleven players selected to the East-West Shrine Bowl 1000 on Tuesday, tied for the third-most in the Big Ten.

“The Shrine Bowl 1,000 serves as the first look at who may be at the 2024 East-West Shrine Bowl,” said Eric Galko, Director of Football Operations and Player Personnel for the Shrine Bowl, via press release. “Our staff combed through all four levels of college football, evaluating thousands of Shrine Bowl-eligible players, to find the top players in the country.

The players most likely to participate will be invited to the Dallas Cowboys Facility in Frisco, Texas on February 1, 2024 where players will be coached by NFL coaches, scouts and front office personnel ahead of the NFL Draft.

Here’s a look at who was selected:
