Perez at Linebacker
One player to keep an eye on Saturday is Maryland safety Antwine Perez, who is now expected to play backup to Moise Fokou at outside linebacker because Adrian Moten is sidelined for at least a month with torn ligaments in his wrist. Prez told me has had not played linebacker in a game since eighth grade, but that he is very confident he can step in and do the job.
“He is doing well,” Ralph Friedgen said of Perez at linebacker. “He does some things better than others. He gives us a better cover guy there. He has trouble holding up against tight ends. It is not a will thing, it is a weight thing.
Perez is 6-0 and 200-210 pounds, and he could be going up against a 250-pound player.
Anyone concerned whether Perez can step in for Moten, whose presence will be missed?
