The Maryland Terrapins suffered a huge blow during their first week of training camp when leading returning receiver Jeshaun Jones was lost for the season after suffering a torn ACL.

Jones put together one of the most impressive freshman debuts you will ever see when the Terrapins upset the Texas Longhorns to open up the 2018 season. He threw, ran, and caught a touchdown pass in the Terps 34-29 victory.

As the season went on, Jones became a major player for what was a pretty bad Maryland passing attack. He finished the season with 22 catches for 288 yards and a team-high five touchdowns. He also added 173 yards and two scores on the ground.

Jones' was expected to take a big step forward in 2019, as new head coach Mike Locksley tries to revamp a Maryland passing attack that ranked second-to-last in the conference.

Jones will take a redshirt this season and will be sophomore-eligible in the 2020 season.
