Kerr Pledges For Maryland; Big Week for Terps?

Big week for Maryland. First, All-Met linebacker Eteyen Edet. Now, All-Met lineman Zach Kerr of Quince Orchard has pledged to be a Terrapin. And all indications point in the direction of two-time All-Met wide receiver Kenny Tate announcing for Maryland tomorrow.

The news of the day is Kerr, highly-touted as a junior though his production fell off a little this season as opponents paid more attention to him. Still, the 6-foot-3, 323-pound tackle was quite popular among college coaches. Maryland's Ralph Friedgen and Dave Sollazzo were at Quince Orchard earlier this week, then joined the player for a home visit and dinner at Coach Dave Mencarini's house. Mencarini wouldn't divulge the menu - top secret information, apparently, though he would say that his wife did the cooking.

Gathered around the table, Kerr gave Friedgen his commitment.

"We're happy for Zach and his family," Mencarini said. "He has done great job laying a foundation for himself in this area. I'm sure Maryland is hoping he can continue to build the foundation that he's already laid."

In other Quince Orchard recruiting news, second-team All-Met wide receiver Travis Hawkins also has an offer from Maryland. All-Met lineman Terrence Stephens (6-2, 285), defensive end Jason Ankrah (6-4, 235) and tight end Cody Magill (6-3, 225) are drawing plenty of attention. Georgia assistant Tony Ball was at the Gaithersburg school today to meet with Mencarini.
