Kick return unit a concern for Maryland
Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen did not have much to say Wednesday of note. He did not seem to have much of a voice either. But I found a few things interesting:
The first thing is that he is looking for a solution for the kickoff return team. Maryland ranks last nationally – yes, last – in yards per kickoff return. The unit was supposed to be a strength for Maryland, but it has struggled mightily. Torrey Smith’s nagging injuries have not helped, either. So Friedgen said that he plans to change up some of the personnel on the unit. We’ll have to see how that works out this Saturday.
Defensive back Desmond Kearse has a nagging ankle injury and has not gotten better.
Freshman offensive lineman Max Garcia could very well play this week. Coaches are very high on him and he should play this season.
Travis Baltz will continue to handle place kicking duties this week.
