Maryland on the ‘receiving’ end of a transfer

So to speak.

The addition of former New Mexico coach Mike Locksley as offensive coordinator has apparently reaped some dividends for Maryland, which has lost more athletes in one year than Marshall and Kansas State could possibly accept combined.

Anyway, the Terps are actually on the receiving end of the transfer exchange this time (whuuuuuttt????) with the arrival of former New Mexico wideout Daniel Adams. According to the Washington Times, Adams is already enrolled in classes at Maryland, but to satisfy transfer rules, he will be sitting out the 2012 season. Additionally, Adams suffered a foot injury in an offseason workout and will likely miss two or three months recovering.

“I told him the other day ‘If it was going to happen, now was the time for it to happen since you’re not going to be playing,’” Edsall said. “He’s disappointed but he’ll be in good hands.”

Adams played in the first two games of last season as a true freshman, but injuries would limit his playing time. A product of the Washington D.C. area, Adams is well-connected with Locksley beyond his time at New Mexico, since Locksley has strong recruiting ties to the D.C. region.

    Now, with any luck young man, not starting play for the turtles until 2013, means maybe you will not have to play for Edsal at all. I can’t imagine he can survive another stellar year at the helm as a HC for them.

    Edsall says”he is in good hands.”. I guess if you want the hands to beat up someone, then I guess he is.

    Whether Edsall stays or goes will also depend largely on the whims of the Under Armour founder who is pumping money in to the UM football program. As long as he supports Edsall, the noose will be loose depite wins/losses and the public perception of something wrong given all the transfers. Sad but true.
