- In case you missed it, Mark Turgeon had his first practice with the post-Len era Terps, and he had some pretty good things to say. In particular, that Shaquille Cleare was doing all the right things to be a successful player, and Charles Mitchell was at least trying. And about that new recruit, Mr. Peters? Well, he’s going to be just fine come next season’s tip-off, rest assured.
- In a double Washington Post link dump, Prewitt gives us some insight into the life and expectations of Evan Smotrycz, the oft-overlooked Michigan transfer. Because he’s largely an unknown entity, fans tend to overestimate/underestimate his importance to the team. We know he is a shooter, but not much else about him can be gleaned from his limited playing time. I’m on the side that thinks he’s going to play a very big role, but I’ve only seen him play about three times.
- No, Maryland isn’t going to be in the ACC for the 2014 season, but that didn’t stop BleacherReport from giving the Terps a ranking in their most recent “Top 2014 recruiting classes in the ACC” article. You can check out where we are here, and note that the Terps are almost guaranteed to raise in that ranking as well. Unfortunately, it means nothing since they’ll be in the Big Ten by the time any of these guys play.
- Finally, Jeff Barker decides to make some bold Maryland football predictions since it’s the offseason and he can. Sorry to disappoint, but none of them are that outlandish, so I generally agree with them.
Stay out of the rain, Terp Nation!
