NCAA FB, Terps

Bring it on home to [College Park]

The Terps have been dropping the ball with local recruiting for years now but two 4 star locals have seen the light and are coming home. Adrian Coxson (Baltimore) a tall, possession type playmaker who runs a 4.5 40 left the University of Florida earlier this week and immediately committed to be a Terp.

Jordan Haden (Fort Washington), another Freshmen Gator who’s seen the light, is expected to commit this weekend. Jordan is especially notable because his older brother Joe was recently taken in the 1st Round of the NFL Draft just last April. Joe had a storybook career as a Gator where he won a National Championship, and was an All-American.  So as you can see the sudden transfer of Jordan is somewhat surprising. Another area of excitement surrounding Jordan is the fact that he has a younger brother currently in high school who is expected to be a 5 star recruit and is, by the claims of many recruiting scouts, the most talented of all the Haden brothers. You have to believe the Terps now have the inside track with Jordan becoming a Terp.

Despite Maryland’s 2-10 record last year they have been crushing it on the recruiting trail. They scored a top 35 recruiting class last February, and now the additions of some very talented transfers have everyone around College Park excited.  They may not be doing well locally, but Nationally they have done well up and down the Atlantic Coast getting players from North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and even Florida.  With a new Maryland president named earlier in the week, and a new AD on the way perhaps Ralph and company will get another year to build off of what is looking like a very special group of players. If that happens, look for the Terps to be contending for an ACC crown in just two years.
