BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Maryland starting cornerback Alvin Hill had knee surgery Thursday and will miss the rest of the season, becoming the latest Terp to be ruled out for the rest of the year due to injury.

Hill suffered a torn PCL during the Terps’ win over Syracuse last week.

Including Hill, Maryland has lost five players to season-ending injuries since the season began Aug. 30.

Senior Jeremiah Johnson will take over for Hill as the starting cornerback opposite Will Likely. Sophomore Jarrett Ross will step in as the No. 3 corner. Freshman Daniel Ezeagwu is now the fourth corner.

Wide receiver Taivon Jacobs (knee), outside linebacker Cavon Walker (foot), defensive end Quinton Jefferson (knee) and tight end Andrew Isaacs (knee) are the other players the Terps have lost to season-ending injuries.
