Quite a Pickup for the Terps

Got a call earlier tonight from former Friendly offensive coordinator Marcus Berry, who reported that All-Met linebacker Eteyen Edet today committed to play for Maryland.

Edet was on an official visit to Maryland this weekend. He went without a scholarship offer. That came this morning. It didn't take long for Edet to make up his mind.

It's quite a get for Maryland, which wasn't even involved with Edet until the past month. When Erin Henderson opted for the NFL, the Terps were back in the market for a linebacker. There also is rising optimism that after a poor start to high school, Edet has turned things around academically -- after spending last year at Fork Union Military Academy and this year at Friendly -- and will qualify academically, though it is far from certain.

Also, Berry reports that lineman Quinton Sales committed to Massachusetts. All told, 11 Friendly players could sign letters-of-intent on Wednesday -- though it would be a stretch to count former All-Met wide receiver Vinnie Hill, who attended a prep school this year as a 12th.

For those wondering about the word "former" in Berry's title, he says he's done coaching at Friendly, upset at the way things were handled by the school system this year when Friendly had to forfeit most of its season for using an ineligible player.

it looks like Maryland's luck might be turning for the better now that James Franklin is back, lets hope this means Zach Kerr and Kenny Tate stay in-state. M-a-r-y-l-a-n-d, go Maryland
