FCS the likely landing spot for ex-Terp RB Jacquille Veii


Two months after leaving Maryland, Jacquille Veii appears to have found a new college football home.

Citing sources familiar with the situation, the Baltimore Sun reported that Veii has decided to continue his playing career at Towson. As noted by the Sun, Veii’s decision to transfer following the spring game was likely triggered by the fact that he wouldn’t have been any higher than No. 3 on the Terps’ running back depth chart.

Last season with the Terps, Veii rushed 19 times for 105 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught 16 passes for 230 yards.

Listed as a wide receiver as a true freshman in 2013, Veii was moved to running back for 2014.

Because he’s transferring from the FBS to the FCS, Veii will be eligible to play immediately in 2015. He’ll have two seasons of eligibility remaining, plus a redshirt at his disposal.
