C.J. Brown is the Terps starting quarterback this season. There is no question about that. The question as to who will back him up, however, is still up in the air, and, according to Head Coach Randy Edsall, the question is almost certain to crossover into the start of the regular season.
Perry Hills, who started several games last season for the Terps before going down to a season ending ACL injury, Caleb Rowe, who played in a few games last season as a freshman, and Ricardo Young, a transfer from the University of New Mexico, are the Terps competing for the No. 2 spot.
“Nobody really separated themselves,” said Head Coach Edsall in an interview with Maryland Athletics. “I’m waiting for somebody to step up. If not, we’ll just make a week-to-week decision or situation-to-situation decision.”
As the Terps struggle with their No. 2 quarterback issues, they ended preseason camp with their annual crab feast. Held in conjunction with the Terrapin Club, the feast took place inside the University of Maryland’s Samuel Riggs Alumni Center on Wednesday, August 21st.
With over 400 donors and the entire 2013 football team and coaching staff attending, the feast was a night filled with steamed crabs, live music and excitement about the upcoming football season.
“We always enjoy this terrific event,” said Head Coach Edsall in an interview with Maryland Athletics during the feast. “It’s a great time to meet and visit with our donors before the start of the season.”
Earlier in the day, before the feast, the donors attended the Terps’ last preseason practice at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium.
The Terps will open the regular season against Florida International University this Saturday at 12:30 P.M. at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium.
