Just as it seems to be doing across the country in various college football camps this month, Maryland is seeing the competition to be the starting quarterback start to heat up. Terrapins head coach Randy Edsall is, wisely, in no serious rush to name a starter to lead Maryland’s offense. With three options vying for the gig, it is best to let camp play out before finding a comfort level with either Caleb Rowe, Perry Hills or Oklahoma State transfer Daxx Garman. Edsall would, however, prefer top be able to find that comfort zone as quickly as possible.
“We’re going to evaluate how they do in the practices, how they do in the scrimmages. I’d like to make a decision as quickly as I can so we can get some continuity going with a guy in there. They’re competing,” Edsall said in a story published by The Washington Post.
To date, all three quarterbacks have reportedly seen a pretty even mix of the first team reps. While Garman has shown some good signs early on in camp while learning a new playbook, Rowe may still end up being a slight favorite in the competition despite coming back from a torn ACL from last season.
“I don’t feel like I’m very rusty,” Rowe said this week. “It’s just being faster, a little quicker with my reads. I feel fine. My feet are good.”
