His name is John Crowder and he's a 6'8 220 pound Forward/Center from Baltimore. To get a feel for his skill level, Capitol Hoops has him as the 5th rated prospect in the area, one spot above fellow Terp target, Isaiah Miles. Now if we can just get an all local 2012 class of Justin Anderson, Isaiah Miles, and Crowder, I will be a very happy man.
That higher than expected for anyone else? Looking like another bubble year if they're right, though. - BB
For the Terps, its Red Zone offense.
"Maryland missed five field goals and scored touchdowns at a less than 50 percent clip (15-of-31) on its trips inside the opponents' 20. That conversion percentage tied for last in the ACC."
Here's how you handle a question about refereeing or bad luck. Ralph take notice.
"We haven’t spent a lot of time on that (the goal that got called back) because we can’t fix that. We can fix what we did wrong to get down 6-0 [in the first quarter], we can fix our face-off game, we can fix executing a little better on the offensive end of the field. Whether it was a bad break or bad luck or whatever, we’ve just got to move on and fix the things we can control."
By signing the nation's #1 Offensive Tackle, Dematha senior, Cyrus Kouandjio. At least, thats what Bleacher Report blogger Bryan Kelly thinks.
Now, there is absolutely no merit to this article (its from Bleacher Report), but its still an interesting idea to toss around. A proven winner with a history of recruiting well in the area sounds like a great fit to me.
Remember Christian Varner?
He was the Terps' safety who played in every game from 2004-2007. He's now playing for the Maryland Maniacs in the Indoor Football League, but still hasn't given up on his NFL dreams. A great story that ran in The Diamondback today.
