Maryland Minute 9.23.10 - Faust, O'Bryant Visiting This Weekend

Rivals - Meyer's Mailbag: Faust & JOB Committing?
...probably not.

I wouldn't expect a commitment from O'Bryant, the No. 38 prospect in the Rivals150 [when he visits Maryland this weekend]. O'Bryant, who is from Cleveland (Miss.) East Side High School, has made it clear that he wants to take all his visits before committing.

He has already visited LSU and has a visit lined up for Miami the week after his Maryland visit. In-state Ole Miss and Mississippi State will likely host O'Bryant on unofficial visits. Alabama and Georgia Tech are also on his list, and a lot of people think it is unlikely that O'Bryant will go to school outside the state of Mississippi, anyway.

It would not be a shocker, however, if Faust were to commit on his visit. Maryland is the local school on Faust's list and has been the perceived leader. Faust has talked positively about the Terrapins in interviews, and there is available playing time for him, which is a priority. Also, Maryland is the only school with which Faust has scheduled a visit.

Always sucks to hear that JOB is probably staying in Mississippi, but it certainly seems that Maryland's a legit player. If he does leave the state, I'd be surprised if Maryland wasn't the most competitive. And if Faust isn't a Terp by Monday, I'll be a little very disappointed.

And a reminder: signs. Lots and lots of signs.

Terrapins Insider - A Few Notes Pre-FIU
Darin Drakeford is out for good, Will Yeatman and Devonte Campbell may or may not play. Drat.

Baltz still holding on to placekicking gig for Terps -
Ferrara's now healthy, and Baltz is still kicking. I imagine this'll stop once the ACC season hits.

Dinich Picks Against Terps

The Panthers lost two heartbreakers and are ready for their breakthrough game in this week’s upset special. FIU was leading Texas A&M 20-6 on the road in the fourth quarter and lost 19-14 to Rutgers. They’re due.

Believe I called this. But again, this is a bet-focused thing, and as always: never bet on Maryland football.

CFN Picks Maryland Over FIU, 26-17
Good to see someone still believes, even if that someone is Pete Fiutak.

After missed chance, Gloster makes the grade - The Diamondback
I haven't been overly impressed with Gloster so far, but it's still a good story. Makes you like him.

Hey, A New Rankings Site: The 247 is Released
247Sports, a new Rivals/Scout competitor founded by the guy that created Rivals, came out with their top 247 (football). A few rankings:

#104 - Kevin McReynolds
#106 - Travis Hughes
#116 - Darius Jennings
#134 - Blake Countess

Very favorable to Maryland targets, IMO.
