Dave Telep from ESPN has an insider post about Maryland's signing of Damonte Dodd, and he's a fan of the move. It's an insider article, but if you have any way to access it, I recommend you read it. He's very positive about the signing.
I will give just a brief highlight to respect the insider aspect as I know the Testudo Times people prefer:
"Essentially, [Dodd] can be moldable clay and for a guy like Turgeon who owns a track record of improving under-the-radar bigs, the coach has to be excited to work with a player like Dodd."
Essentially he sums up that Turgeon ran with a tip to one of his assistants, did his homework and is excited about the prospect of developing this kid.
