Super event at the Stamp Student Union last night as the Football introduced its 22 man recruiting class to members of the MGN and Terrapin Nation in general.
Tune into Terp talk tonight as head Coach Randy Edsall will be on to discuss his 30th ranked recruiting class. The late addition of Taivon Jacobs and Yannick Ngakoue (from Friendship Collegiate Academy) bumped the class ranked up 15 spots. Edsall was able to snatch Jacobs away from Ohio State and Urban Meyer with an in home visit in the final days. Jacobs is a 4 star WR. Yannick is a 6’2 225 MLB who will make an immediate impact for the Terps.
It was my first meeting with Deon Long the JUCO 5 star, who originally was with Locksley in New Mexico. First of all, he seemed ecstatic to be back home and told me one of the biggest influences on him returning was his buddy Stefon Diggs. These 2 guys will form a wide receiver combo the likes of which Maryland has never seen.
There were raves all around for Shane Cockerille whose QB stock is rising everyday. CJ Brown was in tremendous spirits anxious yo return to action. His participation in the spring football practices will be limited. Over the next week I will publish synopsis’s on all of the 22 new Terps.
