2019 Maryland Offseason Thread
« on: December 11, 2018, 10:17:20 AM »
I figure I'll post here. Don't want to take any more space in other threads for speculation and rumors when most here don't care.

With that said, Shaq Smith is now being mentioned as a possible transfer. I find this one a bit hard to believe, because isn't he established at Clemson?

We'll see.

If you don't object, I think the title of this thread should be "Maryland 2019 Offseason Thread", in keeping with the tidy atmosphere ELA has worked so hard to help build here.

With the amount of activity around here for Maryland, do you really think we need a Maryland thread for every year, or offseason?
How much tidier can you get?

He averaged 10 snaps a game. Prime looking for more PT guy unless he thinks snaps will open next year.

I'd like to think we can get more Maryland posters here. And more posters in general. That said, I think individual threads for each school could be a good thing for all of us.

4 star Isaiah Hazel is the first to flip from WVU to UMD.

Hoping this gets the ball rolling.

A strong Maryland Program is good for the conference. And where I don't have insider infor or make many post regarding Maryland, I enjoy reading up on them.

I don't think there is any doubt Maryland is going to be recruiting very well

Elijah Brooks, Dematha's HC, is likely going to be joining the staff as RB's coach, and Josh Wilson, a former Terp, will likely become the HC of Dematha, thus giving Maryland a major pipeline to the powerhouse school.

Nick Cross, a current FSU commit, is supposed to be on campus today, and is likely the next to flip.  Time will tell.

So are kids flocking to Maryland because he coached at bama?   He's 3-31 as a HC....

He could always recruit, particularly that DMV area.  It was the other stuff that always was, and to some extend still is, the question.  He somehow got Arrelious Benn and Vontae Davis out of DC to commit to Illinois when he was there under Zook.  Hiring him at New Mexico made no sense, when his biggest selling point was being able to recruit blue chippers from a geographic region on the other side of the country.  New Mexico isn't pulling in 5* kids no matter what, and certainly not from the DC area.
If his experience with Saban has made him better with the non recruiting stuff, it could be a home run hire.  Even if it didn't, I think they'll recruit well enough to be fine.  The problem is someone has to be 5th in the division, and it may be MSU and Maryland still battling not to be it.

It's not the X's and O's....

Brooks is official.  #1 WR in the nation is visiting this weekend.

Locks' first stop was just to get into coaching.  I love how people look at the record at NM though.

He can explain it....

A bud of mine, believes that Gattis and Hurts are a real possibility.

Gattis just needs to sign the contract, and we'll see about Hurts. 

Again, pure rumor, but he's been right before.

Wow.
Interesting to say the least.
This was a big shock.

Hurts visiting Maryland. Would be a big grab for the Terps if he graduate transfers there.

With the Gattis betrayal, I don't see it happening.

Seems like he was all set to follow Gattis to Maryland, now it seems more likely hell follow Enos to Miami.

I'm not sure thats the worst thing, I see flashes from Hill.  I have more faith in this staff getting his best out of him.

Hill won't play next year. 
Piggy is the better QB.

To be a Maryland fan....

All the hot rumors associated with the hiring of Locksley, evaporates.

Hurts to Oklahoma.

What were all the hot rumors, and is it that you feel differently about hiring Locksley without those happening or that you merely feel differently about 2019 without them happening?

Really? Are you trying to add salt? 
Gattis was our OC. Jones was TE coach. Hurts was the QB.
Several recruits were supposed to flip. Only 1 did.
Locks is still the coach we needed, because McNair's family approved, and it's a community divided.
Without him, we could totally lose the DMV. 
Very hard not to feel there are forces working against Maryland.
