Good QB News: Turner Will Stay

This is great news; I was really scared that Chris Turner would transfer after Steffy was named the starter. I actually think he should've, but apparently he has more faith. He'll stay at UMD all the way through.

Maryland backup quarterback Chris Turner isn't going anywhere, his father confirmed.

Rumors have been flying about Turner possibly transferring after Jordan Steffy was named the starter on Monday, but John Turner admitted he just missed his son.

This is a good move for both Turner and the program for several reasons, but here are two that stand out:

1. He's going to play. I'd be really surprised if the Terps make it through the entire season without him. And Josh Portis. And Jordan Steffy.

2. It would be difficult to transfer to a Division I school in California that would let him take over a starting job as a senior.
