Maryland Practice Update: Three Starters Named for Terps

New, comments

Starters at safety, right guard and right tackle have been named this week.

US PRESSWIRE

Randy Edsall has named three starters, but is still unsure on who will be the back-up quarterback for the Terps, according to Aaron Kasinitz of the Diamondback.

At right tackle, Ryan Doyle has beat out fifth-year senior Nick Klemm. This was an expected move - Klemm has really struggled in camp so far and Doyle had been taking first week reps for more than a week.

In other expected moves, Sean Davis has beat out A.J. Hendy for the starting safety gig opposite Anthony Nixon. Hendy is still expected to get plenty of field time off the bench.

The real surprise came at right guard, where Andrew Zeller, thought to be the firm starter, was replaced by walk-on tackle Michael Dunn. Dunn, a former all-county lineman at Whitman high school, will continue the tradition of walk-on guard starters last taken up by Andrew Gonnella.

At back-up quarterback, Edsall says he hasn't decided between Ricardo Young and Caleb Rowe - meaning Perry Hills is out of the running.

We'll have more from practice tomorrow - a site note, I am in Los Angeles and was unable to attend.
