During spring football in 2008, Minoso Rodgers met a mature-beyond-his-years running back named Albert Reid and immediately predicted big things for the eighth-grader. “I loved his build,” said Rodgers, the running backs coach at Friendship Collegiate High in Washington. “He had a nice, thick frame and he definitely got started in the weight room and looked like a football player. He got himself on the field, making some upperclassmen look [silly] in spring ball … making them miss.

You've already got a true freshman quarterback, so why not pair him with a true freshman tailback? Maryland said today that Albert Reid -- a 5-foot-10, 200-pound true freshman from Washington -- will start Saturday in the opener against William & Mary. That's because the original starter, redshirt freshman Brandon Ross, has a hamstring injury. Reid will likely share the spot Saturday with sophomore Justus Pickett and true freshman Wes Brown. It'll be running back by committee.

COLLEGE PARK -- As early as the first week of preseason practice, Maryland running backs coach Andre Powell made a prediction about sophomore running back Wes Brown. “I think by the time we get to game week, he'll be a guy that we'll find can help us win,” Powell said. And that's what happened. Junior Brandon Ross is the Terps' starter, and the team also has junior Albert Reid. But Brown played in short-yardage situations during the Terps' opener against James Madison and then saw his workload increase in the second half after Maryland built a comfortable lead.

One week after Maryland landed Good Counsel's Wes Brown , the Terps picked up another highly touted local running back.  Albert Reid , a 5-foot-11, 190-pound senior from Friendship Collegiate (D.C.), committed to the Terps on Thursday morning. “I would say after [Reid's December] visit [to College Park], he felt good” about Maryland, said Friendship Collegiate coach Aazaar Abdul-Rahim . “The more he learned about the academics and the more he learned about the depth chart, the more he liked it.” Reid committed to West Virginia over the summer but withdrew his pledge to the Mountaineers last month.

Running back Wes Brown: The Good Counsel alum is the Terps" largest tailback at 210 pounds. He was Stefon Diggs' teammate in high school, and the two are close on the field. "If he's mad, I calm him down. I treat him like he's my little brother," Brown said. Kicker Brad Craddock: The Australian was mostly off limits to reporters during the preseason because he is a freshman.There is often trepidation about inserting a true freshman kicker into the lineup, but everybody has to start somewhere.

"The university handled all of that. They did a thorough investigation and we're just moving forward," Edsall said after practice Thursday, his first public comments about Brown since the Baltimore Sun report earlier this month.

Maryland coach Randy Edsall says he wasn't talking about quarterback when he hinted at personnel changes after Saturday's win over Wake Forest. "There is no quarterback controversy," the coach told reporters Sunday. Edsall said after the game: "I don't want to mention anything right now until I have a chance to really evaluate the film, but I think there will be some things from a personnel standpoint that will be a little bit different as we go into next week on offense. " Edsall, who has talked about trying to find playing time for backup quarterback Devin Burns, clarified Sunday that his postgame comments were related to the tailback playing rotation - not to Burns.

The key to success for a freshman quarterback?  Maryland has been thinking about that puzzle ever since redshirt junior C.J. Brown tore his ACL a few weeks ago. True freshman Perry Hills will be the starter when the Terps host William & Mary in Saturday's opener. Hills, who was a quarterback and state champion wrestler at his western Pennsylvania high school, is being instructed to understand his limitations and not try to do too much, too soon. “Perry needs to go out and make first downs and have the team move the ball,” coach Randy Edsall said.

COLLEGE PARK -  During one preseason practice, Maryland safety Anthony Nixon read the eyes of quarterback Caleb Rowe, jumped in front of wide receiver Levern Jacobs and was in perfect position for an interception in the middle of the field. But the ball bounced off of Nixon's hands and straight into the hands of Jacobs, who turned what should have been a turnover into a long gain. To Terps coach Randy Edsall, those are the plays Nixon needs to make. Edsall refers to Nixon as "Steady Eddie," a solid, dependable player in the back end of Maryland's defense who is entering his third season as the Terps' starting free safety.

A glance at three Maryland football players who aren't expected to begin the season in the starting lineup but could still produce for the Terps:   Sophomore running back Wes Brown Brandon Ross is Maryland's starter at running back, and Albert Reid is Ross' top backup, but coaches will look to take advantage of Brown's physicality and toughness. Ross is an all-purpose-type back who has decent size (5-feet-10, 205 pounds), decent speed and decent receiving skills out of the backfield.

COLLEGE PARK -  Thursday's practice was the last before Maryland goes to full pads later today. Here are some notes and observations from the session: * The defense continues to look better than the offense through the early part of practice, but the offense did get touchdown runs from running backs Wes Brown and Jacquille Veii as well as a touchdown pass from Shane Cockerille (Gilman) during goal-line drills late in practice. * Redshirt freshman tight end Derrick Hayward is raw and lacks fluidity as a route-runner, but he is 6-foot-5, 235 pounds and had made several catches during the 7-on-7 and team portions of practice, including one over the middle of the field that went for about a 20-yard gain.

COLLEGE PARK  - For Maryland running back Wes Brown, part of the process of returning to school after he was arrested following a confrontation with police last summer involved speaking to youth groups about not making the same mistakes he had. That was the "best" part of the process, he said after practice Saturday at Byrd Stadium, but more of a reality check came when Brown returned to his former high school, Good Counsel. For four hours a day, to fully understand what he had lost, he did custodial work.
