Gilman quarterback Kai Locksley has orally committed to Florida State, picking the Seminoles over Maryland and Texas. Locksley, the son of Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, is rated by ESPN as the 11 th -best dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2015 and the seventh-best player in Maryland. He recently dropped the Terps from consideration, he said. "They kind of were my dark horse throughout this whole process," Locksley said. "They were a school I felt could, out of nowhere, just pop up, but we kind of decided together that it was real hard to play for your dad, especially at the level that he's at and [Maryland]

LAKEWOOD, Ohio - The pressure was on the Gilman football team before it even stepped onto the field for the season opener Sunday afternoon. Facing St. Edward (Ohio), one of the top-ranked teams in the country, in front of a nationally televised audience, the Greyhounds knew they'd be in for a test. And the Eagles lived up to the billing - starting strong, finishing stronger and breezing to a 38-7 victory. "I don't think we prepared for anything. We got walloped … absolutely hammered," Gilman coach Biff Poggi said.

It's been labeled Maryland's biggest football game in at least two years, but do the No. 25 Terps actually have a chance to upset No. 8 Florida State in Tallahassee? Here's a look at what the experts from a number of national media outlets think. (Feel free to leave your comments and score predictions at the bottom.)   ESPN Insider Phil Steele has FSU prevailing, 37-20: "This will be the first time since 2006 that Maryland has been involved in a game featuring two Top-25 teams and I think the stage may be too big at this point," he writes, "especially considering the Seminoles have averaged 52 PPG in their past nine home games while the defense will be playing with a chip on its shoulder after last week's poor performance.

Florida State's media notes project a key battle Saturday between Maryland receiver Stefon Diggs and Seminoles senior cornerback Lamarcus Joyner. That should be fun to watch. But I'm looking forward to seeing how Maryland's pressure - the Terps have been sack happy through four games - fares against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. I wrote a story for tomorrow's paper on Winston , who I spoke with briefly today. The striking thing about Winston is how calm and focused he has been to begin his career.

Before the ESPN College GameDay cameras began rolling, before analyst Dick Vitale bellowed "Are you kidding me?" there was just Deividas Dulkys practicing his 3-pointers. The Florida State guard is known as a gym rat. While some college players must be coerced to play hard, it's the reverse with Dulkys. Coaches habitually tell the senior to ease up so he's not uptight when the game begins. But on Saturday — hours before the Seminoles played North Carolina — Dulkys seemed particularly focused.

It's interesting how Maryland's ACC schedule is laid out, giving the Terps three out of four games at home to start before they make their first trip to Tobacco Road to play North Carolina on Jan. 19. Given Maryland's 13-1 start, all four games appear winnable, though Wedneday night's game against Florida State (9-5, 1-0 ACC) will certainly be a step up from Saturday's rout of Virginia Tech. In fact, Mark Turgeon called the game against the Seminoles “the toughest opponent since the Kentucky game, referring to Maryland's season-opening three-point loss to the then No. 3 ranked Wildcats at the Barclays Center.

The Terps (21-5, 9-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) took the lead for good after 1:57 elapsed and outscored the Seminoles (17-9, 5-8) by 53-35 in the first half. Maryland increased its lead to a game-high 22 points on a 3-pointer by Lexi Brown with 17:34 remaining in the game.

Maryland wide receiver Nigel King is not on the injury report Maryland released Thursday , signaling that he will be back for Saturday's game at No. 8 Florida State. King, who has the size to be a red zone threat, was injured in the third game of the season at Connecticut. He has three receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown this season. The Terps are also hopeful that defensive lineman Zeke Riser can return. The graduate student transfer from Houston, who is listed as probable with a food injury, would add an experienced presence to the line.

The announcement Thursday that Gilman quarterback Kai Locksley had committed to play at Florida State was disappointing news for Maryland fans who desperately wanted to see the four-star prospect in College Park in 2015. In the long term, it wasn't awful news for Terps coach Randy Edsall and, more importantly, for his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, who also happens to be Kai Locksley's father. After talking with the family in June at their home for a story about the relationship between Mike Locksley and the youngest of his three sons , I came away with the feeling that neither Mike nor Kai was totally comfortable with the idea of working together.

With the first of their two third-round picks, the Ravens filled one of their biggest needs. The Ravens used the 79th overall pick in the draft to select Florida State Terrence Brooks, a rangy free safety who is also a standout on special teams. Brooks was the second consecutive Florida State player that the Ravens acquired, following the second-round selection of defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan. It also marked the third straight pick the Ravens used to upgrade the middle of their defense.

When Glenelg offensive lineman David Robbins decided to visit Florida State last month, he just wanted to see what a national championship football program looked like from the inside. He left Tallahassee, Fla., thinking that he might be able to play there. Four days after his March 20 visit, the junior got an offer from Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher. Last week, Robbins accepted. “If you had asked me a week before the visit, I would have said we were just going down there for the trip.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but this year in this space we will provide a look ahead rather than looking back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what coach Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to watch as the Terps get ready to play Florida State in the second round of the ACC tournament in Greensboro, N.C., on Thursday at noon.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Evan Smotrycz looked lost. Before Maryland's game against Florida State in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament began Thursday afternoon at the Greensboro Coliseum, Smotrycz stood on the sideline near the team's bench, his hands in the pockets of his warmup pants.  When the game started, he took a seat on the bench next to the walk-ons, a clear sign that the 6-9 junior forward wasn't going to play. A back injury that began at halftime of last Sunday's overtime win against then No. 5 Virginia at Comcast Center - a game in which he scored all 13 of his points in the first half and took only one shot in the second half - and caused him to miss practice on Tuesday in College Park - flared up again Thursday morning.

After shooting 4 of 13 from the field in Tuesday's 12-point loss at North Carolina, Maryland guard Seth Allen watched film of the game with assistant coach Scott Spinelli Friday before practice. “At the North Carolina game, I was trying to get to the basket every time,” Allen said Saturday after Maryland's 83-71 victory over Florida State .  “He told me to work on my mid-range game.” After practice Friday, Allen stayed around practicing his mid-range jump shots from spots around the arc, just inside the 3-point line.

His team has lost four of six games since its 13-1 start, including three straight on the road in the Atlantic Coast Conference. After Mark Turgeon was widely praised for keeping the Terps competitive in his first season, fans are getting a little impatient with the progress the team has made in the coach's second year at Maryland. At least, that's if you pay attention to what is being written on the various message boards and said on some radio talk shows. Not that Turgeon does.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Slumped against a wall across from his team's dressing room at the Greensboro Coliseum, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon couldn't get Florida State center Boris Bojanovsky's dunk out of his head. The play, with less than a second left in Thursday's second-round Atlantic Coast Conference tournament game, not only gave the Seminoles a 67-65 victory, but it also ended the Terps' 61-year association with the league here on Tobacco Road. Turgeon said his team was well aware that this was its last chance at the ACC tournament, but he said the Terps had more emotion about playing less than two days after the death of former team manager Zach Lederer, who passed away at 20 after a lengthy battle with brain cancer.
