I'm sure most if not all Ravens fans here love the Terps, so I'd like to know your season outlook. Who will be QB Steffy or Portis, who will start RB Ball or Lattimore although they will probably just split carries again so it doesn't matter, and this year I think Erin Henderson and Darrius Heyward Bey will both prove to be first rounder, as both are eligible next year. Also whats the news on Jared Gaither?

Hopefully the starting QB will be Josh Portis. The RBs will split carries but I hope to see more Keon Lattimore than Lance Ball. And yes Erin Henderson and Derrius Heyward-Bey are definitely first rd talent and should both be 1st rd picks!!! And I believe Gaither is back meaning if he has a great season he is Levi Brown next year, a guy who comes from out of nowhere to be a top 10 pick.

Steffey has been declared the Starter already. He has supposedly looked very good also.

Can anyone tell me about Josh Portis? Hes a sophmore right?


I think the terps have a really good chance to win the ACC next year. If our QB situation goes good we should have a pretty solid offense and you guys are right Erin Henderson is a beast and will be a better version of his brother. Im pretty excited for Maryland football.

On a side note, I cant wait for Antwine Perez to play. He transfered here from USC. He will have to sit out all next year but the kid is a monster safety prospect and could be the next "Sean Taylor" type safety.

Gaither will have 1 more year of eligibility I think he needs to come back for his senior year. Not only will it make MD a MUCH better team but he can refine his skills and potentially be a TOP 10 pick. He is a physical beast that is getting better and better game by game. Most players his size played Varsity Football for 4 years in HS then went on to play in College somewhere so by the time they get to the NFL they have some wear on their tires sort of speak. Gaither though only played 1 year of HS football then went to a Prep school before coming to UMD and starting at LT so he only has 4 years of organized football experience ! He probably has one of the biggest upsides at LT then anyone I have seen play in long time. Someone with his physical attributes learning to play the position correctly from a quality coach at a big school, he will not have bad habits just limited experience when he gets to the NFL.

Not familiar with the transfer from USC ? That would be great if we had someone like that on the Team !!! Why did he transfer and where is he from ???

Scout.com had him ranked as a 5 star recruit. I think he transferred from USC because of the lack of playing time in the future. Hes from Camdem NJ and this is what scout has to say about him.


"Can you say Ronnie Lott, Perez is explosive when he closes on an opposition he acts like he was just shot out of a cannon. He finishes each tackle, and punsishes the opposing player. A very versatile and athletic prospect. Needs to improve his coverage skills, but should have no problem doing so."

WOW that would be great if we could get ahold of him and he plays up to that level.. We totally could be out playing Teams like Va Tech and our recruiting them too...Friedgen needs to be a better job recruiting those Top notch players in PA and the Carolinas not just getting those super freaks that can bench press the weight room and will probably run at the next olympics !! I trust him though and that method worked for Bowden at FSU it just took awhile for him to catch up with those athletes and find out how to use them..

The upcoming season should be an exciting one. We have a bunch of NFL-caliber players that don't get talked about very often.

First off, I'm a bit dissapointed about Steffy being our guy. I guess he has looked better, but I really want Portis to be our starter at quarterback.

Lance Ball and Lattimore are money as a 1-2 combo, I love how we use them.

Darrius Heyward-Bey is one of my favorite players and if he continues to progress, I think he's a first rounder. 6'2", 210 pounds, legit 4.3 speed doesn't come around that often. And I think he actually has room to get bigger and faster.

Erin Henderson is amazing as well. Tackling machine with great talent, and I think he could be as good as his brother was. A sleeper pick for the Butkus award in my opinion and potential 1st rounder.

If Gaither has a good year, and than has some Maryland type workouts, he should also be a 1st rounder.

Another guy that doesn't get talked about very often is nose tackle Dre Moore. I think he had a great year last season. He's got ridiculous potential. 310 pounds with 4.8 speed and great strength. I realize this is a bit optimistic, but if he has a great season, I think he could hear his name called in the first round.

Erin won't be as good as EJ in college but Erin is a much better prospect, his athleticism is what separates him from EJ. EJ would be the next Ray Lewis if he was more fluid.

I cant wait to see Zach Brown as our RB. MD state title for 100 and 200 meter runs, plus 215 pound state champion, my friend wrestled him and said he was the strongest person he ever wrestled, I cant wait to see him on the field.

Also it would have been nice if Melvin Alaeze didnt get kicked off the team. For a while I had visions of Alaeze and Austin as the most beastly DT duo ever. Now we have neither.

Don't forget Aurelious Benn this year that went to Illinois instead of UMD... he and Heyward-Bey would have been an incredible 1-2 at WR !! Instead he is going to be catching the ball for Juice Williams that bastard !!!

Being a Redshirt Sophmore I think Heyward might stay, but guys like VD sure help out his draft hype.

Word out of UMD is that Heyward-Bey is struggling with his GPA. Ralph Friedgen said that he wants his players to carry at least a 2.5 GPA. Heyward-Bey is coming in at around 2.0-2.2 right now. Hopefully he can get his grades up and be able to play football this year.

Also did anyone else hear that Jeremy Ricker has decided to transfer? He said that he wasn't getting a fair shot. It's a shame that kids like this think they should have everything handed to them. Sure he was upset about Portis coming in, but he should have stuck it out for at least a year. After all, Hollenbach was 4th on the chart and took over the job due to injury. He went on to start for 2 straight years. Something similar could have happened with Ricker.

The 2.5 GPA is if the wish to play 2 sports, he wants to run track but isn't being allowed due to him not having a 2.5. He's fine in terms of football but is unable to compete in track, and thats Friedgen's rule about the 2.5 not a NCAA.

I think Dre could be a first day pick, I really love the way he plays on that DL. 2 other guys I think we'll see playing on sundays soon from UMD are Jeremy Navarre just a beast and a very good DE, prolly a tweener in the pros, and Trey Covington I think he could be a great 3-4 OLB and heres to hoping he plays that position greatly in a black Ravens jersey!!

04-27-2007, 05:09 PM
Heyward-Bey, Ball, Lattimore are for sure.

If Heyward Bey and Henderson come out, they will both be high picks.

Others include Dre Moore, who should be at least a day 1 pick, Jared Gaither in the first or second round, Joey Haynos 2nd day, and definitely Lance Ball and Keon on second day with an outside chance for first.

Ok this is going back before my time but Dre Moore brings back comparisons to another uber athletic DT from UMD... Randy White that played DT/DE for the Dallas Cowboys. He could be a real player in the league in a few years.

Looks like next off season we are going to have one of the Top recruiting classes in the nation. We are in the running for the Top FS prospect in the country and we are Top on the radar for RB Lamaar Thomas a Reggie Bush clone that is already running in the 4.3 range prior to his senior season. We have signed Teddy Dargan a nasty DT with a High football IQ with tons of potential. Seems as though we could have a Top Notch program that can compete with OSU & Florida & USC on the recruiting front since we have a presence of helping talented players get to the NFL. Will be scary to get all the transfers eligible and our talented class this year and next on the field in 09 !! National Champs in 2010 !!!!

Someone did mention him in another thread... sounds like an interesting prospect but he isnt playing this year if I am not mistaken... If we get Will Hill through recruiting who is the #1 FS recruit out there and Perez that would be scary to say the least. Maryland could contend for the National Championship in 2009 or 2010 if we continue on our recruiting path we are on...

Look I realize that being a college athlete you have to pass your classes, but I ask you this if this was FL St or Da U do you think he would have gotten kicked out for grades? No he wouldn't have, and that my friends is why we will never compete for a National Championship, Ralph is too concerned with graduation rates and his players actually working for their grades instead of letting the professors know to pass him.

LT- Jared Gathier/Marshall Yanda or some other draft pick or veteran FA
LG- Jason Brown/Marshall Yanda

And im sure by then we would have a couple extra OL like maybe an extra OG late rd draft pick and an extra OT late rd pick for depth.

I meant future as in like two years. I think it will take Gaither some time to realize his potential and play up to it. But he can play left and right. I'm hoping Terry plays well on the right side, but I see his future being on the left. I'm hoping Yanda can stay at tackle. If he can we have a solid future. He reminds me of a less athletic Jordan Gross. He definately has the demeanor to play RT though. I'm sure everyone has seen this hit...

I think Keon is in for a big year. I actually like him more than Ball but I am usually in the minority with that opinion. Word is Keon has been showing up Lance in camp. If Keon can put up a big year he has pretty good measurables I could see him getting picked late. I could see both him and Ball get picked actually. I think if Heyward-Bey continues what he started last year he could end up declaring and at 6'3 and running as fast as he does he could easily be a first round pick. Same goes with Erin Henderson a big year from him could cause him to declare and be a first rounder. I fully expect Dre Moore to set the combine on fire and work himself into a first day pick if not first rounder. Maryland is notorious for our work out warriors and athletic freaks, and I think Dre will be that guy this year.

Same goes with Erin Henderson a big year from him could cause him to declare and be a first rounder. I fully expect Dre Moore to set the combine on fire and work himself into a first day pick if not first rounder. Maryland is notorious for our work out warriors and athletic freaks, and I think Dre will be that guy this year.

Consider us on the same page Keon is better than Lance!

Also I don't hold out much hope for this UMD season (I know that shocks everyone) but just look at it logically.......

We lost both of our starting OTs
We lost Wesley Jefferson and David Holloway from the LB core
Lost Conrad Bolston on the DL
Lost Josh Wilson at CB
Jordan Steffy sucks

I don't like what this adds up to.

I dont think the losses to the LB core will be that big of a deal because our core group of guys seems to be pretty good right now with Henderson, Covington, Phillistin, Bullock, Moises etc. We seem to be pretty deep at LB. Bolston is a loss but Dre Moore is a better player and I think he will step up big time this year. Off your list of problems what worries me the most is the OT situation, we are going to have to rush in a young T to fill in for Gaither which could mean big problems. Jordan Steffy I like to think of is the Kyle Boller of the Terrapins, He was brought in to be the saving grace at QB and hes looked horrible when hes got his shot. From what Ive seen of training camp and spring practices he looks like hes more calm and confident in his throws which is key. I would persoonally rather see Portis starting because he has that dynamic running ability steffy doesnt have but I guess Steffy deserves his shot again after being rushed in as a fresh. I also think the loss of Josh is a huuuuuuuuuge deal but I think Isaiah Gardener can step up and I love our safety duo in JJ Justice and Christian Varner. I am not expecting a huge year but I think we will be middle of the pack in the ACC. I do not think this will be a throw a way year in the least bit though. We have some promising pieces.

The only hope I have for Steffy is that maybe he'll be like Hill, McBrien, and Hollenbach, even though Hollenbach shouldn't be mentioned with those other 2, and he'll finally grasp the offense and take over and be serviceable enough to get 7 wins and a bowl game.

Same goes for Javorski Lane and Mike Goodson, Texas A&M's duo. No one talks about them and I think they are a great 1-2 punch.

I'm not that big of a MD football fan but I can't understand why Lattimore isn't carrying the load for this team. That and Steffy to me looks like a dear in the headlights an awful lot when in the shotgun so having Keon punishing the D for the most part of the game would definitely allow Steffy to become a bit more comfortable back there and get Bey more involved in the passing game and the TE's.

Do or die this week, it's us or NC State, a disappointing season to say the least, but we need a bowl game. Although not making a bowl game could be greater motivation for the team ala UVA last year. However we have so many seniors leaving that will make our team so much worse, like Keon Lattimore, Lance Ball, Andrew Crummey, Issaiah Gardner, Joey Haynos, Dre Moore, and Christian Varner, and of course those guys who might leave like Erin Henderson and Darrius Heyward Bey. I am excited though next year to see Da'Rel Scott and hopefully Josh Portis.

Yeah it hurts that Slaton wanted to come here and we turned him away, but it's not like tailback has been a weakness for us. Keon and Lance have been great for us in their time here, so it hurts a bit less. It's not like losing a guy like Andre Woodson and getting left with Jordan Steffy.

Dave Phillistin not being at least honorable mention is ridiculous. He was outstanding for us and should have been a second teamer in my eyes. And while I know everyone prefers Keon Lattimore over Ball, personally I like Ball and I felt he was better than Lattimore, especially down the stretch. 4.4 ypc and 12 TD's for Ball in comparison to 3.8 and 13 for Keon.

The Maryland offensive lineman entered the NFL Scouting Combine media room at the Indiana Convention Center on Saturday morning wearing a walking boot on his left foot. It was a surprising scene because Crummey had fractured the fibula in his left leg in October and had returned to play in the Terps' final regular-season game, Maryland's Emerald Bowl loss to Oregon State, and the East-West Shrine game in late December.

Here is a question for all the TERP fans... with the recent level of player we have been getting into the NFL and the obvious training and conditioning we give our program.. why do you think we arent getting more top flight talent coming in ? Ralph is a good coach and its not like UMD is a bad school and its in a great area... and to TOP all of that we play in a Strong Conference !? Makes no sense that we can't recruit more Top flight talent into the program...

Well now I didnt say that he does a ton when it comes to recruiting I said he was a good coach.. which he is. Most programs though the HC isnt out on the road... he is making a call and showing up to close the deal... so I am sure if it meant he had to fly to Cali to Talk to the #1 QB in the country.. Yeah he would be there.

But the real question is who is doing the initial contacting of these prospects to get our foot in the door. If we can get them to visit the campus and see the facilities... then sit in the office and talk with Ralph, we could close the deal more often then not...

i wasnt trying to argue your previous statement i was just giving a reason as to why our recruiting kind of sucks

Great win by Maryland, especially after last week, although that was a pathetic 4th quarter, and not making excuses for Cal but they did look really flat in the first half. But that doesn't matter I couldn't believe the Maryland offense was moving the ball. DaRel Scott was money again, hopefully he's not hurt bad, but Meggett is good. Heyward-Bey showed his pro potential but still will suffer statistically because of QB play. Turner played well but still misses so many open reads. They should just move Portis to RB because it's clear when he's in that he will never throw it. On defense we haven't seen pressure on the QB like that in a while. Kevin Barnes is a legit midround prospect IMO, but the secondary was poor in the 2nd half. Hopefully they don't play like that the rest of the season. But today showed that when we are on, we can beat any team in the ACC.

Too bad Scott didn't play today he was 5th in the nation in rushing, but it's alright not worth risking him. Heyward Bey is absolutely electric when he touches the ball, so sad they can only get it to him so few times. But who's complaining the way we are scoring. I also think we could see Josh Portis move to wideout next season. Maybe a 4th or 5th wideout who gets Screens and reverses because it looks like they are set on Turner for the rest of their careers.

He's played a little every game I think, I definitely saw him a couple times against Cal. Fridge always talks about how impressive he is in practice, so I'd like to see him get in more. At the very least design some trick plays he could use his versatility with on offense although apparently his progression at safety has been impressive. I still think though that he will eventually move back to wideout, which will be much needed when Danny and DHB leave school. But if he gets the whole safety thing down at 6-3"/6-4", 220-230 or so, he could be a freak.

Turner stands in the pocket which is nice but he throws an awful ball. It always floats. Later in the year those will be INT's, I don't think I have ever seen him hit a wide receiver in stride. They always have to either dive down because it was under thrown or jump high and get lit up because it was overthrown. I feel sorry for Da'rell Scott, Turner sett him up to get blasted so many times on the screens. If you see a defender an inch from the back, don't throw it to him. Also they need to find more ways to get DHB the ball. He is absolute electricity but I can't stand how many times Turner misses and DHB wide open for a big TD, or he underthrows it to allow the defense to catch up. Hell if we still had Sam Hollenbach DHB would have 10 TD's already. Ronnie Tyler looks very exciting. Maryland better crush UVA next week. This could be a good opportunity to give their confidence an even bigger boost with a 21+ point victory. I mean look what UVA has done so far:

Loss vs. USC 52-7.

Portis also only knows about 25 - 50% of the play book, there is a lot more to being a quarterback than just being able to throw the ball.

But I agree, I want to work him in the offense a bit more, maybe 15 - 20 snaps a game at least

By your scale, what would he have to do to make it so that you say "he must go" not "he might have to go"?

Because to me, losing top recruits constantly out of your own state, and not getting the ball to the hands of your playmakers, never having your team ready to play in games they should win, constantly letting the better players be on the bench because they dont practice as well as the scrubs that he plays is enough for him to get the **** out now!
