Maryland's first class under DJ Durkin finished at 42, which isn't bad considering the short period of time he and his staff had to work.

A look at DJ Durkin's uneventful signing day at Maryland - Baltimore Sun
Durkin is great. "Asked if losing a key recruit is akin to being dumped by a girl you love in high school, Durkin says: "Yes! You're heartbroken. … My wife says it to me every year, because someone breaks my heart every year. You spend a lot of time with a guy, you really think he's a good fit for your program — if you didn't feel that way, then you weren't fully invested."

Great piece on Durkin and his first class at Maryland.

Alabama commit Terrell Hall says ex-Terps coaches 'didn't sell the program the correct way' - Baltimore Sun
"It was perhaps easier to say no to Maryland. New Terps coach DJ Durkin "knows how to sell the program," Hall said. But "a lot of guys" in the past, he added, "didn’t sell the program the correct way." Interesting perspective from Hall on how Edsall was selling Maryland and what DJ Durkin needs to do in order to get some of the local talent to stay home.
