Recruiting question for Terp Nation


What exactly is it that the Maryland coaching staff IS NOT doing to draw the in-state talent to College Park?  Is it:

1.  The coaches aren't trying hard enough to keep them here?

2.  The coaches see a player is being recruited by Penn State, Ohio State, etc., so therefore goes after someone else thinking there's no way they can land the kid?

3.  The player(s) being recruited just isn't/aren't attracted to College Park and want to go elsewhere to a more "scenic" location?

4.  None of the above?

Quick sidebar: living in South Carolina now for the past 12 years, it's been fun to read/watch the in-state recruiting battle that takes place every year between Clemson and South Carolina.  When Spurrier first took the job, it was as if he was just waiting for the recruits to come to him.  Now, he has transformed his thought process, and is hitting the in-state kids hard.  For the past three years he has been winning the in-state recruting battle and it's starting to show on the field.  If Edsall can start keeping more in-state players at College Park, will we see improved results as well?  (I know it sounds like a dumb question, but do we have in-state athletes that are future game-breakers, like the ones we see at Auburn and Oregon?)
