Trayvon Reed, the 7-foot-1 center who was not allowed to enroll at Maryland after his arrest outside a College Park convenience store last month, has committed to play at Auburn, according to multiple media reports. Reed, who was set to become part of a top-10 recruiting class that will be the Terps' first in the Big Ten Conference, was arrested July 30 for theft, resisting arrest and second-degree assault after an incident with an undercover police officer. Because the officer suffered two broken fingers in the altercation, one of Reed's two assault charges is considered a felony.

Both Logan Aronhalt and John Auslander began their college basketball careers at other schools before coming to Maryland. But they will start their coaching careers with the Terps.

Auslander played three seasons in College Park after a year at Division III Greensboro College. The two former Terps join Steve Asher, who is in his second year as a graduate assistant.

COLLEGE PARK -  Maryland star receiver Stefon Diggs was relegated to working with the second-team offense for most of the second half of preseason practice, and coach Randy Edsall made clear he would remain with the second team until he improved. Edsall was trying to motivate Diggs, and it worked. "The good thing is with Stefon, I did something there, and it motivated him and it got him back on track, and sometimes you have to do that," Edsall said. "You all have kids. You know how it is. You've got to do the same thing.

COLLEGE PARK -  Randy Edsall's plan all along was to re-assess Maryland's depth chart after the first week of preseason practice, and the coach announced two position changes before the Terps' practice Tuesday night. Edsall moved running back Jacquille Veii from running back to slot receiver and highly touted freshman offensive lineman Damian Prince from left tackle to left guard. “[They are] things that we think can help us,” Edsall said. Veii made some plays at running back during the first week of preseason practice and was the fastest and most elusive of Maryland's running backs, but the Terps are deep in the backfield with juniors Brandon Ross and Albert Reid and sophomore Wes Brown.

Hilton, a retired college professor, author and transportation economist whose works on railroads and shipping included the seminal history of Maryland's Ma & Pa Railroad, died Aug. 4 of heart failure at Lorien Health Park in Columbia.

Harwood Jr., a retired CSX executive and a nationally known railroad historian and author. "That resulted in the definitive histories of the American narrow-gauge railroads, the electric interurban railway industry, cable-powered street railways, overnight steamships along the coasts and in the Great Lakes.

COLLEGE PARK -  The Maryland football team's offense attempted a reverse during practice Friday. Most of the defense flowed in the wrong direction, so wide receiver Taivon Jacobs had only one defender between him and the final 15 yards to the end zone. But that defender, senior cornerback Jeremiah Johnson, was not fooled by the reverse and came up to stop Jacobs for about a 2-yard loss. Johnson missed most of last year with a toe injury. He hurt his hamstring once he returned, an injury he aggravated during both the winter and the spring.
