Yep. It's small. About 55,000.
Rutgers: Rashad Blunt WR: 6'2 190 over offers from Cincinnati, East Carolina, Pittsburgh.
Purdue: Wyatt Cook LB: 6'3 225 over offers from Virginia, Maryland
Maryland: DJ Moore ATH/WR: 6'0 180 over offers from Virginia, Indiana. Illinois
1.) Maryland (home state school)
2,) Florida St.
5.) Hawaii (My alma mater. I wouldn't choose them for athletics but there are other reasons.....)
Maryland: Will McClain- OT 6'5 290 over offers from WVU
Gary was known around College Park as a "partier".
I'll leave it at that.....
Ok. Perhaps I should have used a different word.
That was unintentional.
I can't really explain it but Franklin just "grabs" kids.
Even if they have a down season I expect most of the recruits to stay on board.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of his but I do recognize his strengths.
Yeah, I think it is sustainable...unfortunately.
Franklin's just very charismatic.
As a Terps fan overall, I can't complain too much.
Yeah, I wish we had gotten Tabor and entered the B1G with a bang but it is what it is.
While our class could have been better it does fill some needs.
Maryland's biggest weakness was along the offensive line and they (hopefully) shored up that weakness.
We brought in 3 guys who will more than likely be starting in the fall.
5* OT Damian Prince,
4* OT Derwin Gray, Second-best prep player in the country, best prep offensive tackle
3* OT Larry Mazcyk Juco All-American
So like I said, I can't complain much.
I would laugh but given the last few years at Maryland I can't really say anything.
Yeah. The kids love them.
This would help quite a bit.
@RTDaSilva3 asks: locals are saying [Damian] Prince is leaning towards #Terps. How big of an impact would his commitment be?
Shanker: You’re right, as it looks like Maryland is in the driver’s seat for not just Prince but talented defensive back Jalen Tabor as well. At different times in each player’s recruitment it seemed like Maryland was running behind, but the Terps have always been at least near the top and are now close to securing both of the region’s top prospects. A commitment from Prince and Tabor would bring national headlines to a team that has struggled to produce them on the field under Randy Edsall. And if the Terps struggle again in 2013, a recruiting class with the likes of Jess Aniebonam, Prince and Tabor could keep Edsall around for 2014.
Can someone tell me what in the world has happened to Iowa?
1.) Did they lose some key assistants?
2.) Miss out on some key recruits?
3.) Or has Kirk Ferentz just become complacent?
Perhaps it's all of the above?
Not thrilled at the Terps' current position but I suspect that will change dramatically in the near future.
As a Maryland fan I'm more interested in locking down my home state first.
We get raided every year...though I think that's going to change soon.
