Maryland football landed a 2014 commitment on Tuesday, this one coming in the form of safety Jordan Noil of Norcross High School. Noil isn’t the most heralded recruit, but he does hail from one of the more talent rich areas in the nation. He’s not expected to start right away, but there’s a good chance you’ll know his name a little bit further down the road. (Us)
Brendan Darr over at TestudoTimes.com ranks the ACC, and according to him the bye week was kind to the Maryland Terrapins. What stinks about where Maryland is ranked is that two of the three teams ahead of them the Terps have to face in October. If Maryland can escape October 2-2 they should thank the stars, because it isn’t going to be easy.
Rob Dauster of CollegeBasketballTalk.NBCSports.com doesn’t think the Terps have what it takes to make a run at the ACC title in their last season because of the departure of Alex Len. I agree with him for the most part, given how deep and talented the ACC is this season. Maryland has plenty of firepower, but they’re going to need someone to step up in a major way to compete with a retooled league.
The Terps depth chart has had a little shake up, and it’s worth heading over to TestudoTimes to check it out. For what it’s worth, Tyrek Cheeseboro is back so the Terps get some relief from the injuries at receiver.
