Terrapin Takes 6/16: Commits, Nick Faust, USA Soccer


  • The Maryland Terrapins picked up a 2015 football commitment from West Virginia quarterback Gage Shaffer a little over a week ago, and while he was unknown at the time, he is not so anymore. Shaffer took time out of his day to talk with TSMD, and you should check out the report on him here. You have to like his size, that’s for sure, and he looks like he has some zip behind his ball. But the quarterback position is definitely crowded.
  • We’re really feeling ourselves lately, so here’s another story of note about Nick Faust, who appears to have found a home. I am absolutely amazed that Faust went from the University of Maryland to where he will be headed to, but I can guarantee you that he’ll get as many shots as he wants at his new landing spot.
  • Every so often in college football, you get into the awkward situation of conflicts of interest. That’s kind of the situation Terps offensive coordinator Mike Locksley finds himself in with his son, Kai Locksley, whose one of the top recruits in the country. While Mike Locksley obviously wants his son to play for Maryland, he also wants what’s best for his son. Don Markus of the Baltimore Sun talks with the father and sheds some light on what that’s like.
