Football camp

It's Media Day, so we'll have coverage throughout as we're able to talk to the coaches and players.

Baltimore Sun - Notes and observations from Friday's Terps football practice
Some interesting notes here from Matt Zenits. Of note: Malik Jones is impressing, as is Andrew Isaacs. Derwin Gray is competing at right tackle with Ryan Doylke, as expected. And there's this, on Damian Prince:

"Freshman left tackle Damian Prince has been up and down early in camp, as many freshman are this time of year, but he was commended by both Edsall and offensive line coach Greg Studrawa after he had the key block on a Joe Riddle touchdown run during inside run drills. Prince made a mistake on the next play that he was called out for by Studrawa, but he responded by clearing out a defender to spring another Riddle touchdown run a play later."
