Adams as an option at running back

A lot of the focus will center on the quarterbacks this week, but Maryland has multiple options at running back, as well. Da’Rel Scott, Davin Meggett and D.J. Adams all averaged more than five yards per carry in Saturday’s 62-3 victory over Morgan State.

“I think we have guys who can flat-out play,” Adams said. “We are all different, but we complement each other. It is just a matter of time, like tonight, where we can all get into the game and take the opportunity to change the pace. We have guys who can stretch the field, push it in the middle, or even catch the ball in the flat. That makes for a great combination at running back.”

Adams was the most impressive. He had all 66 of Maryland’s yards on Maryland’s first fourth-quarter scoring drive. He carried the ball seven straight times to score the first of two touchdowns Saturday.

“It was a little tiring,” said Adams, who finished with a team-high 70 rushing yards. “But everything was opening up for me. The offensive line was creating big holes and I just hit them hard. Everything was working on that drive, and we came away with a touchdown.”

Coaches had said they could envision Adams playing this season in short-yardage or goal-line opportunities. Your thoughts on the back?
