  • InsideMDSports gives us an update on the Maryland Terrapins point guard of the future, Roddy Peters. Looks like Peters is ahead of schedule in his recovery, and is most certainly going to be ready for next season thanks to his opting for surgery early. It’s a shoulder injury, not a deal-breaker, and I think Peters is going to be completely back into form come the start of next season. He’s going to need to be if he wants to complement Seth Allen properly.
  • And another one from InsideMDSports, which is killing it lately, on Damonte Dodd. It’s nice to know that Damonte seems like he is realistic about expectations, given the front court crowding. As long as the kid is understanding that his development is still a work-in-progress, then he’s going to be a great piece for the team. He’ll also contribute in an intangible way: chemistry.
  • It’s the offseason, so head coach Randy Edsall is running the interview circuit, talking about his Terps in the NFL and the future of the team. A few days ago he joined Norris and Davis on 105.7 to speak about C.J. Brown’s health, and interestingly enough, student-athlete pay programs. Read up/listen if you want to hear ‘ol Rangoon’s thoughts on the matter, which I tend to agree with.
  • Maryland continues to live up to it’s newly minted (by me) name of wide receiver U with the addition of Kevin Dorsey to the Green Bay Packers. It was something I didn’t really expect, but I’m proud of him nonetheless and think going to play with Aaron Rodgers is probably the best thing for him to develop. Dorsey sat down with Matt Bracken earlier this week to talk about the NFL experience thus far, and it’s nice to hear him so happy.
  • Stefon Diggs is really, really starting to gain some national notoriety. He’s been in talks as an early Heisman candidate, ACC Player of the Year, and any other accolade you can tag to his name. The craziest part is how he’s managing to do this despite only being a freshman, and hasn’t played with a veteran quarterback yet. Ben Glicksman of gives us a rundown of how Diggs is growing into a bigger role at Maryland.
