Randy Edsall and the Maryland football coaching staff face the same challenge every year: How do you get a top prospect from Maryland or Washington, D.C., to stay home rather than choose a bigger, more prestigious football program like Alabama, Penn State or Florida? Maryland's staff has landed highly coveted local prospects like wide receiver Stefon Diggs and offensive lineman Damian Prince in recent years, and NBA star LeBron James' decision last week to return to his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers could help the Terps' pitch to local recruits.

Woodbridge (Va.) coach Karibi Dede played at Auburn with five cornerbacks that went on to be selected in the NFL draft. He also later served as a graduate assistant on Auburn's coaching staff. He has seen firsthand what it takes to be a successful corner at the college level. And to Dede, new Maryland commit Mike Majette has the tools to be productive. “Mike has the tools to progress at the collegiate level and the ability to one day play on Sunday,” Dede said during a telephone interview.

Former Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin has already antagonized Terrapins coach Randy Edsall this offseason . The new Penn State coach also apparently doesn't have much of a relationship with his former boss at Maryland, Ralph Friedgen. Franklin worked under Friedgen for seven seasons in College Park and called Friedgen a mentor as recently as January. Friedgen was asked whether he maintains a relationship with Franklin during an interview with the Big Ten Network this week.

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.

Now that it's part of the Big Ten Conference, the University of Maryland will play Pennsylvania State University this upcoming football season on Nov. 1, giving fans their first real shot at a solid football rivalry in years. For 61 years, the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) was home to the University of Maryland and its fans, but it never really accepted the university. The All Carolina Conference, as some call it, has always thumbed its nose at Marylanders (designating the University of Pittsburgh as Maryland's "rival" in 2013 - yuck.

Since a memorial service at a sweltering, standing-room only Cole Field House was held a few days after Len Bias' death in June 1986, there has been little official connection between the former basketball All-American and the University of Maryland. But nearly three decades after his fatal cocaine overdose, and the fallout that led to significant changes at the school, Bias will formally be recognized by Maryland when he is inducted posthumously into the Terps' athletics Hall of Fame.

Four days after losing a late lead against the Ohio Machine and falling into last place in Major League Lacrosse, the Chesapeake Bayhawks made a move geared toward the future. In the lone deal Tuesday before the trade deadline, the Bayhawks (3-7) acquired midfielder Kevin Crowley and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 MLL college draft from the Florida Launch in exchange for midfielders Steven Brooks, David Earl and Jon Hayes. Crowley was an All-Star this season, but his numbers are down from a year ago, when the British Columbia native was chosen as Player of the Year after finishing with 38 goals (three 2-pointers)

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.

After the New York Jets minicamp wrapped up in June, coach Rex Ryan was asked which players stood out to him during the three minicamp practices. Former Maryland cornerback Dexter McDougle was the second player he mentioned. “I think you saw a little bit of why we're so excited about him and optimistic about him,” Ryan told reporters. “He is physical. He's able to press and get both hands on you in press. He'll compete, and I think those are things that we were looking to see and I think we saw today. All of us saw it.” McDougle, the Jets' third-round pick in this year's NFL draft, missed the first two of the Jets' three organized team activities (OTAs)
