About Ryan: Ryan Hill joins Maryland after two years with the Grayson College Vikings. He showed great improvement statistically during his sophomore year at Grayson, lowering his ERA from 6.06 to 2.29 and raising his K/9 from 5.1 to 12.1. Hill helped the Vikings win a conference championship in 2015 and a second-place finish in 2016. He figures to be a bullpen piece for Szefc and the Terps just as he was for the Vikings. The only player on the Maryland roster from Texas, Hill joins fellow transfers Brandon Gum (George Mason) and Will Watson (LSU-Eunice).
