Maryland freshman offensive lineman Nick Brigham has withdrawn from the university for personal reasons, a team spokesman said Wednesday. Brigham, a 6-foot-2, 280-pound guard from Atlanta, was a four-star prospect and the No. 28 player in Georgia, according to 247Sports.com. He never appeared in a game for Maryland. Brigham, a 3.9 student in high school, committed to the Terps in March 2011 shortly after a visit to College Park.  "And so I went there, looked at it completely, objectively," Brigham told The Sun . "Would I still love this campus even if I didn't have football?

COLLEGE PARK - When he's healthy, Braxton Miller is a star, a dynamic and multidimensional threat at quarterback and one of the top offensive weapons in the country. But even without Miller, who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury during preseason practice, Ohio State's offense is still gaining a lot of yards and scoring a lot of points in recent weeks. The play of Miller's replacement, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, is one of the primary reasons why. Slowing Barrett down and trying to force the young quarterback into mistakes will be key for Maryland heading into Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State at Byrd Stadium.

Loyola Blakefield's freshman soccer team completed a perfect 15-0-2 record this season in claiming the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title. The Dons also prevailed over B Conference junior varsity squads from St. Paul's and Boy's Latin. After starting the season with five consecutive wins, a trip to Georgetown Prep in Bethesda was the first real challenge for Loyola. "Both teams were undefeated, and we were unsure how the game would play out. It turned out to be extremely physical.

Aberdeen junior Stephanie Jones already had a connection to Maryland's women's basketball team when she started to get serious about the recruiting process. She knew how much her sister, Brionna, loved her experience last winter as a Terps freshman, but Stephanie did her homework before deciding she wanted to be a Terp, too. She cut a long list of top-notch schools to Maryland, Duke, Louisville and Notre Dame, and Wednesday, the versatile 6-foot-2 forward-guard made a verbal commitment to Maryland coach Brenda Frese, who had first seen her play as a fifth grader.

When Maryland takes the field at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis for Saturday's NCAA tournament quarterfinal matchup against No. 2 seed Johns Hopkins, Goran Murray will likely move to a spot opposite Zach Palmer and shadow the Blue Jays' junior attackman incessantly. That's been the role that the 6-foot, 175-pound defenseman has played in his freshman campaign. Having tangled with the likes of Virginia senior Steele Stanwick, Colgate junior Peter Baum, and Lehigh senior David DiMaria, being asked to contain an opponent's top attackman has become a matter of routine for Murray.

In 2008 and 2009, Maryland rotated Jason Carter and Brian Phipps in the net. The Terps' season-opening opponent this Tuesday may be taking a similar approach. Mount St. Mary's plans to open tomorrow's contest with freshman Will Rego in the cage. But coach Tom Gravante said freshman Frankie McCarthy may play in the second half. “We may play [Rego] the first half and then come in with the other freshman, Frankie McCarthy, for the second half and see what happens,” Gravante said Monday afternoon.

Hakeem Baxter is the leading scorer for the UMES men's basketball team. That might not qualify as a revelation, until you learn that Baxter is a freshman. The 6-foot-2, 170-pound guard is averaging 17.2 points per game, is tied for second on the team in steals (five total) and ranks third in rebounds (4.8 per game) and fourth in assists (1.5 per game). Baxter's debut has stunned even Hawks coach Frankie Allen. “You don't expect that kind of success so quickly from a freshman,” Allen said Tuesday afternoon.

The search for St. Mary's goalkeeper of the future has centered on freshman Joey Casey. The Ellicott City native and Mount St. Joseph native made 15 saves in the Seahawks' 13-12 upset of No. 11 Roanoke Sunday. In doing so, Casey validated coach Chris Hasbrouck's decision to go with him rather than seniors Scott Marsh and Ben Wheeler and junior Zack Blewett. “Great to have,” Hasbrouck said of Casey, who is scheduled to make his second career start against No. 8 Dickinson Saturday.

One of the top-rated members of Maryland's past recruiting class could see some playing time when the Terps play Syracuse on Saturday. Freshman wide receiver Juwann Winfree had some standout moments during preseason practice and has progressed to the point that he was listed on the two-deep when Maryland released its updated depth chart Monday. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Winfree, who was ranked as a four-star prospect, was named the Terps' offensive scout team player of the week last week.

COLLEGE PARK -  Maryland sophomore tight end Andrew Isaacs keeps hearing the same thing from Terps coaches. “I feel like for the most part I know what I'm doing and I'm getting it done, and that's what my coaches keep telling me,” Isaacs said. Isaacs has not been a factor as pass-catcher. Quarterback C.J. Brown has not even thrown a pass in Isaacs' direction through Maryland's first two games. But offensive coordinator Mike Locksley said Isaacs continues to progress in all facets of his game, and he said the wide receiver could become more of a factor in the passing game as the season goes on. “The old adage in coaching is that you do what your players allow to do,” Locksley said.

Maryland freshman Dion Wiley's summer began the day he reported to school in early June for classes, official team workouts and pickup games. When his new Terps teammates went home for a couple of weeks in mid-August, Wiley's basketball education continued in Europe. In what was the first trip out of the country for the 18-year-old from Prince George's County, Wiley was part of a regional all-star team of college players that spent more than a week in England, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands.

COLLEGE PARK -  Three times last week, South Florida running back Marlon Mack found an opening in Western Carolina's defensive front, made a defender or two miss down the field and then outran the defense for a touchdown of 56-plus yards. As a whole, South Florida does not appear to be very good. The Bulls gave up 31 points to a Western Carolina offense that did not score more than 30 points in any game last season. South Florida quarterback Mike White, meanwhile, threw just three touchdowns with nine interceptions in six games last year and was just 9 of 26 with no touchdowns and an interception against a Catamounts defense that gave up 62 points to Samford last season.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland coach Randy Edsall called freshman Will Ulmer in for a meeting Monday. When they sat down, both agreed it would be best for Ulmer to make the move from quarterback to wide receiver. Ulmer was committed to being a quarterback through preseason practice. But he worked some at wide receiver with the scout team as the Terps prepared for their season opener against James Madison last week, and Edsall said Ulmer is now excited about the prospects of playing his new position.

Ohio State freshman Joey Atas doesn't plan on joining the new wave of collegiate tennis baseliners anytime soon. "I like quick points," said the 6-foot-1 Atas, who began making his mark on the tennis court four years ago at Calvert Hall. Atas is having far too much success as a big serve-and-volleyer, using his power game to become the first Buckeye named the Big Ten Conference's Freshman of the Year. He was also one of 13 selected to the 2004 All-Big Ten team, compiling a 25-8 overall singles record while playing mostly at the No. 2 position.

It is the question Maryland basketball fans seem to be asking themselves. Heck, it's the question Mark Turgeon must be asking himself when he goes to sleep at night and gets up in the morning What has happened to Alex Len? The player who had Terps fans chanting "We love you Alex" during his impressive debut last month against Albany and then followed up with equally strong performances against Radford and Cornell has slowly disappeared in Maryland's four ACC games. Except for a few spurts on the offensive end against N.C. Stateand on the defensive end against Wake Forest and Georgia Tech, the 7-1 freshman from the Ukraine has looked out of sync.

Morgan State spokesman Clint Coleman reiterated Wednesday that the school believes all proper procedures were followed by the coaching staff and athletic trainers.

They talk about defensive game plans. They talk about what's going on with the team, and they talk about individual players they have been impressed with. According to Goree, freshman outside linebacker Jesse Aniebonam is one of the players Cudjoe-Virgil has raved about throughout the summer. “He is always telling me like, 'Man, Jesse's going to be nice.
