Brandon Ross Named Starting Running Back

US PRESSWIRE

The sophomore from Delaware separated himself from Albert Reid.

Sophomore tailback Brandon Ross has been named Maryland's starting running back, Randy Edsall announced to the media in his weekly press conference.

Ross beat out fellow sophomore Albert Reid, although both will see significant playing time this season. The two were previously considered co-starters, with Ross getting the bulk of carries in practice, but Ross has now been named the official starter.

Last season, Ross had 85 carries for 390 yards and a touchdown. He had two 100-yard games - a 16-carry, 100-yard effort at Clemson and a 21-carry, 141-yard game at North Carolina. Both games took place in the last three weeks of the season.

Reid, a former four-star prospect, ran 36 times for 92 yards last season. His best game also took place against Clemson, when he ran six times for 24 yards.
