Franklin Sees Improvement From Meggett
Maryland's coaches like the team’s depth at running back, and offensive coordinator James Franklin said that junior Da’Rel Scott, a first-team all-ACC performer last season, and sophomore Davin Meggett are both number one backs and will be used as such.
Franklin has seen the biggest improvement from Meggett, who played in every game last season and averaged 5.1 yards per carry. Meggett was a little “robotic” last season, Franklin said, and did not demonstrate good vision.
“This year, he can make people miss, he’s got very good vision and he is more natural with everything he is doing,” Franklin said.
Redshirt freshman Gary Douglas is slightly ahead of junior Morgan Green at the third-string running back position. Franklin said Douglas is one of the few players on the team who can “make something happen when nothing is there.”
