Jake Layman's adjustment to college life in general at Maryland and basketball in particular was a bit more difficult than the other three freshmen who were part of second-year coach Mark Turgeon's first recruiting class. That he admittedly fell behind in his classwork - to the point where Turgeon benched him for the first half of a recent game for failing to turn in a paper - contributed to the issues he had on the court, the 6-8 forward said Monday. “I think me getting behind in school, which was a good learning experience for me the first semester, it turned into me not doing well on the court, too,” Layman said after practice at Comcast Center.

COLLEGE PARK - On their recent media day, some of the Maryland basketball players made like heavyweight boxers, flexing their biceps and striking poses of exaggerated toughness for photographers. But not Jake Layman. "Want me to smile?" Layman asked politely. He spoke so softly that a camera man had to strain to hear him. It's not that Layman, a 6-foot-8 freshman, doesn't have loads of ability and ambition. He's an integral part of a promising freshman class that will debut when the Terps host Indiana University of Pennsylvania in an exhibition game Friday night.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Maryland unveiled renderings of its new FieldTurf surface at Byrd Stadium that will be traditional green - not red, black or pewter. After last season's debut of those wild-looking football uniforms, did the university intentionally decide to go conservative with the field? Jeff Barker: I think Maryland accomplished what it wanted.

Entering the summer, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon knew he had two pretty good options regarding Jake Layman's immediate future. Either the promising, 6-foot-8 forward would join the Terps for summer workouts, allowing him to bond with future teammates. Or else the incoming freshman would make the USA Men's Under-18 Team, potentially gaining valuable experience playing against international opponents. The latter scenario unfolded, giving Maryland bragging rights to a player who is using the 2012 FIBA Americas U18 Championship to showcase his varied skills.

Baltimore Sun reporter Don Markus, editor Matt Bracken and intern Connor Letourneau (The Diamondback's co-sports editor) weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Are Kevin Plank's feelings about Randy Edsall genuine? Don Markus: It didn't surprise me that the Under Armour CEO told The Sun's Jeff Barker that Maryland fans should be more supportive of the school's embattled football coach . Had he stayed mum, Plank's silence would have been construed by the media as a sign that he wasn't on board anymore -- if he ever had been.

With relatives living in Maryland and fond memories of the Terps' 2002 national championship lingering in his mind, Jake Layman always had interest in UM's basketball program. Maryland's interest in the 6-foot-8, 195-pound small forward, however, took a bit longer to develop. “Honestly, they were one of the last ones to kind of start recruiting me a little bit,” said Layman, who has family in the Bel Air area. “I always wanted Maryland.
