Torrey Smith among standouts after second Maryland practice

Maryland just finished up practice in the morning/early afternoon heat in College Park. Coach Ralph Friedgen was in a jovial mood during his media session with local reporters.

There is a chance the Terrapins could practice early Thursday as well because of the threat of more rain – and because players like to practice early.

Friedgen challenged players Wednesday, telling them how hard Navy players play. It motivated his guys, he said, and made for a solid second day of practice after little recovery time from Tuesday night.

Friedgen pinpointed several players who have stood out through two days of practice: Defensive back Travis Hawkins, defensive back Avery Graham, defensive back Trenton Hughes, defensive lineman Joe Vellano (the star of spring practice), defensive lineman A.J. Francis, wide receiver Adrian Cannon, all-everything Torrey Smith, running back D.J. Adams, running backs Da’Rel Scott and Davin Meggett and quarterbacks C.J. Brown and Devin Burns.

Friedgen likes his tight ends and praised Will Yeatman for being a “big, athletic kid with soft hands.”

That’s all well and good, but Friedgen really wants to see where players are after about 10 or 11 days of practice.

“Check back with me then,” he said.

We will.
