Welcome back for the latest episode of Young Terps, where we recap a chaotic end of the week for Maryland fans.
After wrapping up a signing day show following day one of the early signing period, we take a look at how the Terps’ signed 2024 class fared with the pursuit of five-star Jordan Seaton officially over. After diving into what went wrong, we take a look at how that impacts the offensive line.
That wasn’t the only development in the trenches this week, though, as offensive lineman DJ Glaze accepted his invitation to the 2024 Reese’s Senior Bowl which very likely ends his career in College Park. While the Terps were inches away from securing its starting offensive line in 2024, assistant Brian Braswell will now have at least one more starter along the offensive line now. Maryland did announce the official signing of a pair of portal linemen, Aliou Bah and Alan Herron, as we delve into how that shakes up the starting offensive line. How do we project the early starting offensive line to shake out?
We close out the show by recapping Maryland’s first road win of the season as Jahmir Young put everyone on notice, scoring 37 of Maryland’s 69 points in a nine-point win at UCLA on Friday night. Donta Scott was able to pitch in with 17 points of his own, but the supporting cast was nowhere to be found as the Terps finished with zero bench points. Caelum Swanton Rodger, Julian Reese and Jordan Geronimo all fouled out in the win, providing a bit of concern with the frontcourt. But with the Terps now on a four-game winning streak heading into Thursday night’s game vs. Coppin State, we assess how close the Terps are to hitting their stride with top-ranked Purdue around the corner.
Happy holidays, Terp nation.
