Joe Vellano, former Terps DL, signs with Patriots as undrafted free agent -
Great to see Joe land with a good team like the Pats. If I was a player who didn't get drafted, you have to be happy with the opportunity to work with someone like Belichick. Hope it works out.

Antonio Barton says Maryland is one of a few programs he's seriously considering -
I personally would like to have Barton more than Eli Carter. Barton is a guard, can play the 1, but can also score at the 2. He's a decent 3-point shooter and would bring some needed depth to the 1 & 2 guard positions. Carter on the other hand is much more of a wing, where I think we have a log jam, and as Ben B. pointed out yesterday, Carter is Stoglin-esque in his shooting. He'll get you points but he has to put up a ton of shots to get 'em. Give me Barton, please. He's also a Baltimore guy, which is always a good thing to have on your roster. Love that Nick is recruiting him too.

Not directly related to Maryland, but arguably one of the bigger sports stories of the last decade or so. It's worth a read, if you haven't done so already.
