Report: Syracuse reels in graduate transfer


Former Maryland wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo will be playing his final year of college football at Syracuse as a graduate transfer, according to a report by

The Powder Springs, Georgia, native took to Twitter earlier this month to announce his intentions to leave the Terrapins program. Originally a member of the 2012 recruiting class, he started 13 games between 2013 and 2014 after redshirting his first year in College Park, but he logged only two starts this past season.

Etta-Tawo caught 61 passes for 938 yards and three touchdowns while at Maryland.

The wideout is the second graduate transfer the Orange have landed in the last two months. In February, former Delaware State defensive end Gabe Sherrod decided he would finish his college career at Syracuse.

With one season of eligibility remaining, Etta-Tawo will add experience to a receiving corps that returns leading pass-catcher Steve Ishmael (39 REC, 570 YDS, 7 TD in 2015).
