To Become Elite

Football recruiting during the Randy Edsall era has been very encouraging. The talent he and his staff have brought in has been excellent with Stefon Diggs, Derwin Gray, Wes Brown, and a host of others. We're all hopeful that those successes will translate to wins on the field.

Currently, we're in the running for a pair of local five-star players in Damian Prince and Jalen Tabor. Getting both of those would be a big step toward making Maryland a team to be reckoned with in the B1G, and building a virtual recruiting fence around the DMV.

While there is certainly cause for optimism that the football program is on the rise, is there another recruiting step that needs to be taken to make UMD an elite football program? Looking at the elite programs - the Alabamas, Ohio States, Notre Dames - they all successfully recruit five-star players from other states. Do we have to consistently lure some of those players to CP to be considered elite? Will building a virtual recruiting fence around the DMV be enough to make the Terps an elite program, or will we need to attract five-star reruits from outside the area to be successful? And, have we made any inroads toward that end?
