Five Football Players Enroll
Let me drop this football tidbit here amid all the basketball back-and-forth:
COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland football team has added five newcomers to its roster, head coach Ralph Friedgen announced Thursday.
DL DeOnte Arnett, DL Cody Blue, LB Darin Drakeford, DL Zachariah Kerr and LB Avery Murray enrolled in school this week and will be eligible for spring football practice which opens on March 24.
All five players will have four years of eligibility beginning in the fall. They should give the Terps a boost on the defensive side of the ball this spring where seven starters must be replaced, including two defensive linemen (Jeremy Navarre and Mack Frost) and three linebackers (Trey Covington, Moise Fokou, and Dave Philistin).
Blue and Kerr each signed National Letters of Intent in 2008 and attended Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy in the fall. Arnett, Drakeford and Murray completed high school a semester early.
