Former Houston defensive end Zeke Riser is transferring to Maryland. The 6-foot-4, 255-pound senior started nine games for the Cougars last season. He recorded 38 tackles and three sacks in 2013 and he started 27 career games at Houston.
Riser graduated from Houston in December, and as a graduate student, he should be eligible to play immediately. After attempting to walk-on at Texas, Riser is now headed to College Park.
