“I’m just really excited and I have a great opportunity at Maryland,” said Zeke Riser, a 6-foot-4, 265-pounder who recorded 38 tackles, 11 tackles for loss and three sacks for the Cougars in 2012. “About a month ago I really started talking [to the UMD staff]; that’s when it got really serious. But Coach [Brian] Stewart really did a great job with me, and I’ve been in contact with him throughout the whole process.”
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.
The signees star early as Maryland showcases its top 50 ranked class. I’ll be there at the event. Stop by and say hello as we will be doing some video work for the website.
Randy’s in home visit went very well and it’s down to the Terps and Ohio State.

This is not a sour grapes article. There is no conspiracy but the amount of blown calls, missed calls, inability to make right calls could eventually make the average fan turn away.
It seemed to me the Eagle secondary was holding our receivers every play.
Early in the game the Ravens must have started 5 fights yet they were never penalized.
Flacco was flawless in the 1st half, and then way off target in the 2nd. It will take a much better performance to beat New England. His 1st half pass to Jacobi for a TD was a thing of beauty. The play selection in the 2nd half left a lot to be desired.
Justin Tucker was the shining star of the day connecting on FGs of 56, 51, and 48 yards.
Ray Rice had an excellent game and should have been utilized more in the 2nd half.Up 23-17 with 4:42 to go the defense had to make 1 stop to win–unable to do so.
Defense is just not the same without Terrell Suggs
Great catch by Torrey inthe 2nd half
The Ravens are 1-1. I am not going to dwell on the officiating
“Despite being committed to Boston College since right after his junior season ended, Manchester (Conn.) tight end Andrew Isaacs didn’t hide his affinity for the University of Maryland. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound four-star recruit lives more than six hours away from College Park, but that didn’t stop him from making the trek down four times this summer. He came once for the spring game, once for a camp, once to show his family the campus and a fourth time with his assistant coach, who is from the area.” from yahoosports.com
Recruiting coordinator John Dunn led the charge on this young man.
Opara a 6’4 275 Defensive Tackle from Mandarin High in Jacksonville Fl becomes the newest verbal commit to the Terrapins. Assistant Coach Lyndon Johnson was in charge of his recruitment. Another tremendous get for Randy Edsall.

Quarterback Ricardo Young has committed to play for the University of Maryland, signing a financial-aid agreement, head football coach Randy Edsall announced Thursday.
Young, who attended Iowa Western Community College this past spring and University of New Mexico in the fall of 2011, will join the Terps for preseason practice, which begins Aug. 6. He will not be eligible to play until 2013 when he will be a redshirt junior.
Young is coming back home, having starred at H.D. Woodson High School. He was named the 2009 Washington, D.C., Player of the Year and the Gatorade State Player of the Year. “It’s nice to add Ricardo to the team,” Edsall said. “I recruited him while I was at UConn, so I’m familiar with him as a person. He’s also a tremendous athlete and football player. We’re glad he’s decided to come back home and be part of the excitement that is building around the program.”
