Football recruiting

• The Washington Post caught up with several Terps football recruits for their reactions to Don Brown's departure for Connecticut.

"I wish, if he knew earlier, that he would have done it before signing day," [Lukas] Foreman said. "I was so mad when I found out, but then I called [Maryland assistant recruiting coordinator Ryan Steinberg] and he told me what happened and everything. [Brown] did it to be with his family. You can't be mad at that."
