Titus Till and Jeremiah Wilson both left Maryland for James Madison after Randy Edsall's first year as the Terps' coach in 2011. Both will return to College Park on Saturday when Maryland hosts James Madison. Till was a four-star recruit when he signed with the Terps in 2010 and has been a starter for the Dukes the past three years. Till was a strong safety his first two seasons, but new James Madison coach Everett Withers said Till will play linebacker as a senior this year.

Ralph Friedgen told Rutgers coach Kyle Flood his greatest gift as an offensive coordinator is to look at the players he has on offense and find a way to score . Even at 67, Friedgen apparently still has that gift. Behind Friedgen, a Rutgers offense that was so consistently bad last season put up 41 points and 496 yards of total offense during the Scarlet Knights' shootout win over Washington State Thursday night. Friedgen had been out of football since being fired by Maryland in 2010, but was hired to be Rutgers' offensive coordinator in January and given the task of improving an offense that ranked 95th in the nation last year.

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.

Forward Diandra Tchatchouang and guard Dara Taylor won't be back with the Terps women's basketball team next season, a spokeswoman with the Maryland athletic department confirmed Wednesday night. The news was reported first by The Diamondback. Tchatchouang, who started all 32 games and averaged 8.7 points and 5.0 rebounds, will return to her native France after this semester to rehabilitate from an anterior cruciate ligament injury she suffered during the NCAA tournament. Taylor, a sophomore who averaged 1.7points and 2.2 assists as her playing time declined after 2009-10, will transfer to Penn State.

When I began covering college women's lacrosse, Maryland owned the sport. The Terrapins were in the process of winning seven straight NCAA championships and I watched them win the last five, including a thrilling 14-13 overtime win against Georgetown in 2001. After that, the Terps fell off the pace. The sport grew and the talent pool spread all around the country. A new power rose at Northwestern and soon threatened to surpass the Terps' title streak. But in May, the Terps made sure that wouldn't happen.

Navy (in Baltimore): Terps and Midshipmen have played only 20 times (Navy leads, 14-6), but there have been some memorable and intense games between teams that could become true rivals. Morgan State: Terps will face Bears on just four days' rest. It's the first time the universities -- located just 36 miles apart -- have played in football. Maryland fans sure remember losing to Bears in men's basketball in 2009. At West Virginia: Ralph Friedgen says he loves border rivalries, and this marks the resumption of one. Mountaineers will rely on young quarterback Geno Smith and a strong running game.

One night, the Longwood Lancers are going to beat a team of Maryland's caliber. Longwood coach Mike Gillian says he senses such an upset is coming. But the Terps began Tuesday night with a flurry of baskets, steals and emphatic blocks. As Maryland bolted to a 29-point, first-half lead, the message couldn't have been clearer -- not here, not tonight, not against the Terps, who prevailed, 106-55. Maryland recorded its most first-half points (57) since scoring 58 against St. John's in 2006.

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.

To those who follow college athletics only casually, the announcement last week that the University of Maryland will henceforth award athletic scholarships on a multi-year basis instead of year-to-year may sound like a minor change. But in fact, it's a major reform that is not only welcome but is likely to attract a legion of imitators. From the effort to unionize athletes at Northwestern University as school employees (a year-long struggle that remains ongoing) to the legal fight over whether the NCAA can profit from the images of athletes in video games and elsewhere without compensating them, how colleges and universities treat athletes — or mistreat them — has sparked a pitched battle of late.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. Shaker Heights (Ohio) forward Esa Ahmad has been a priority for Maryland for much of the 2015 recruiting cycle. He's already been to Maryland twice, spoken with the coaches a number of times and learned about the school. So what's the one big thing he wants to see as he takes the first of his official visits, to College Park, this weekend?

COLLEGE PARK -  Maryland redshirt freshman Taivon Jacobs is listed as a backup at wide receiver, but coach Randy Edsall said the Terps have packages to utilize Jacobs' speed and elusiveness. The 5-foot-9, 160-pound Jacobs is considered the fastest player on the Terps' roster and stood out at times during preseason practice. “There'll be things that we have him involved and utilize him,” Edsall said Thursday. In addition to being a backup at wide receiver, Jacobs -- the younger brother of fellow Terps receiver Levern Jacobs -- is also the backup kick returner behind Stefon Diggs.

Players on the Maryland men's basketball team have frequently bad-mouthed the NIT over the years, and I recall one player referring to the NIT as a banishment to hell. This may be a case of most of the team suffering for the bad manners of a few, but there you are and that's life. I said to my wife and neighbor just yesterday, I would not blame the NIT if they didn't invite Maryland. If someone tells me I live in a lousy neighborhood and why don't I move, they needn't expect an invitation to my house.
