Maryland released their updated depth chart for this week’s Florida State game today, and there are a few expected changes as well as a few unexpected ones. Let’s run it down.
At quarterback, C.J. Brown takes over officially for Danny O’Brien as the team’s sole quarterback. In terms of Brown’s targets, Ronnie Tyler and Kevin Dorsey are both not listed on the two-deep, leaving true freshman Marcus Leak and senior Quintin McCree as the starters with Kerry Boykins and Tony Logan also listed. Tyler had a horrible time against Clemson, dropping a key pass in the end zone, while Dorsey suffered an apparent injury during the game and was not seen in the second half.
At defensive end, Marcus Whitfield is now David Mackall’s backup, replacing transfer Alvin Thomas. Mario Rowson is the starter at STAR, over the injured Kenny Tate (who is listed as his backup), and the same deal goes for Alex Twine and Darin Drakeford at WILL. Everything else appears to be the same.
We’ll have more coverage of the Florida State game in the coming days.
