Maryland lands another transfer this week

Maryland Logo

Look at Maryland grabbing up transfers all of a sudden.

The Terps picked up another athlete this week with the addition of quarterback Ricardo Young. The school announced the addition in a statement.

“It’s nice to add Ricardo to the team,” Randy Edsall said. “I recruited him while I was at UConn, so I’m familiar with him as a person. He’s also a tremendous athlete and football player. We’re glad he’s decided to come back home and be part of the excitement that is building around the program.”

Two days ago, Maryland announced former New Mexico receiver Daniel Adams was joining the team.

Young began his collegiate career at Virginia Tech in 2010, where he redshirted and eventually fell behind starter Logan Thomas in the depth chart. In 2011, Young transferred to New Mexico — current Terps offensive coordinator Mike Locksley was the former coach for the Lobos — before transferring again briefly to Iowa Western C.C.

Due to NCAA transfer rules, Young will have to sit out yet another season and will be eligible to play in 2013 as a redshirt junior.

    If you are a redshirt junior and at your fourth college, there might be something wrong……

    1) Their O-coord Locksley (no relation to Robin) is big trouble. He will be gone in a couple years, but recruit$ and their familie$ $ure like hi$ $tyle.
    2) If he can avoid getting the program in any trouble, he is worth the gamble. And they are likely fine as cheating gets nothing more than a handslap in this sport.

    Not sure getting transfers from UNM is such a big deal. Not sure their is a whole lot of excitement at Maryland atm either.

    When you are desperate, you will take transfers that are problems.
    Unfortunately, it will do Maryland no good, because by the time
    this guy is eligible to play, he will be in trouble.

    What makes you think Locksley will be gone in a few years? He’s from DC, so he can have a substantial amount of success recruiting at Maryland. He’s a better OC than HC … his stint in charge of New Mexico was a disaster, but he had good success in Illinois as a coordinator.

    What evidence do you have that Locksley (or anyone at Maryland) is slipping cash to players to get them to come to College Park?

    Maryland has two new coordinators, and they won’t compete for the ACC championship this year, but they probably will in a couple of years if they continue to get more and more recruits from Maryland. The transfers coming in only went to New Mexico because of Locksley. They’re from the MD/DC area, so they’re basically coming back home.

    UMD is sometimes called a “sleeping giant” because so much football talent comes out of the MD / DC / VA area, but the Terps haven’t been able to keep most of it. That’s starting to change, so people are starting to get excited.

    I completely agree with mdako6, Locksley is a straight up guy. Paying Cyrus Kouandjio’s handler money for keeping New Mexico in his Top 5 all the way until the end of his recruitment (fact told to me directly by many people involved) was completely legit.

    [sarcasm level extremely high]

    Locksley is a clown. Of course, so is Edsall so they go hand in hand. A shame since UA and another person I won’t mention are putting so much money into Maryland Football and are legit.
