The football coaches were made available to the media today, and there was one interesting tidbit that stood out, via Patrick Stevens:

Edsall says Jeremiah Wilson will move from DB to running back, Devin Burns from quarterback to wide receiver.

We obviously had the first part a month ago, so let’s talk about the second part. It’s a great move, on the surface. Burns was behind Danny O’Brien and CJ Brown on the depth chart, not to mention Tyler Smith, who is in the same class as Burns and came in with considerable more hype.

Last year, Ralph Friedgen talked about Burns’ football smarts and his ability to move with the ball, both assets that should come in to play at wideout. With significant losses at the position, the Terps need all the help they can get with depth, and Burns certainly helps there.

Ultimately, Burns didn’t have much of a future with Maryland at quarterback (I was honestly worried he might consider transferring). At wideout, he’ll have a chance to showcase his skills, and maybe throw in a trick Antwaan Randle El style play or two.

Who’s ready for spring football?!
