In the weeks leading up to the return of the college football season, many programs will still have an open scholarship slot or two. Most teams give these final scholarships to walk-ons, often as surprises.
With Maryland’s 2019 football season fast approaching, the Terps still had a few scholarships yet to be filled. Thursday night, while attending the Baltimore Ravens preseason game against Darnell Savage’s Green Bay Packers, the Terrapins gave senior walk-on linebacker Bruce Miller a scholarship.

Last year was Miller’s first season with Maryland, having spent his first two years playing for Dean Junior College in Massachusetts. He appeared in two games for the Terps last year.
With several members of last year’s linebacking group graduating from college and departing for the NFL, Miller will look to make an impression and get more playing time this year.
