Maryland Minute 1.5.12: Texas A&M Point Guard Transfer Jamal Branch Considering Terps

Zags: Jamal Branch considering Maryland
Hmmm. More coming later today, but Branch, if you didn't hear, was Turgeon's biggest get at A&M, a 2011 top-50 point guard. He'd be eligible in 2013 unless he decided basically right now, which is a bit close to the Harrisons for my taste. More soon.

ScoutsFocus: Aquille Carr might commit to Maryland today?

And a coach recruiting him believes he'll choose Maryland
Double uh? He himself says the Terps haven't been much in contact lately and I'd be really surprised to see him at Maryland for dozens of reasons, not the least of which has to do with a certain Harrison Twins.

Randy Shannon agrees to become Tennessee DC
More coming on this, too. So I guess it's down to LJ?

Bill O'Brien agrees to be Penn State Nittany Lions coach, sources say - ESPN
In case you were interested. I imagine he'll decide pretty quickly if he's going to retain Larry Johnson - I wouldn't expect him to - and if not, Maryland should act quickly.

DeMatha TE-DE Brent Wilkerson opens recruitment
His recruiter at Penn State? Larry Johnson. Hmmm. He isn't considering Maryland right now and I don't believe Locks' DM connections are that strong, but if Johnson came on board you'd have to think Maryland would stand a very good shot. Sort of a Jason Goode type at TE, I believe.

More on Wes Brown
Because why wouldn't you want more on Wes Brown?

Asked whether he could help turn around the Terps, who finished 2-10 in head coach Randy Edsall's first season in College Park, Brown said, "I'll let the blogs do the talking. There's nothing much I can say. I'm going to do my job. I hope the others around me do theirs."

If he's referencing us, I will be glad to talk about you, Wes.

A primer for the ACC season - ESPN
Nice little rundown from ESPN. They've got the Terps finishing 8th (too low IMO), and Terrell Stoglin as a candidate for player of the year (so far). - BG

Former Maryland RB Lance Ball talks about his year with the Denver Broncos - Terrapins Insider
Lance's catch-and-run against Navy is still one of my favorite football memories since the WVU demolition in the Gator Bowl. Glad to see him catching on in Denver with the Fightin' Tebows.
