These are among the things I’ll be watching at Byrd Stadium tonight (7:00 p.m., open to the public).
* The passing and mobility of quarterback Ricardo Young.
I haven’t seen him much. Actually, almost nobody has seen much of him in game situations recently.
He had to sit out last season after transferring, although I caught him in August practices a few times.
This is a delicate subject, but I wonder how he feels about C.J. Brown already being named the starting quarterback.
* The cornerbacks. Dexter McDougle and Jeremiah Johnson are back.
Maryland has enough faith in the duo -- and enough belief in the line pressure up front -- that it hopes to play more man-to-man this season.
You’ve got to love the loyalty of former Terps defensive back Cameron Chism. When I wrote a story on five returning Terps to watch this season, Chism tweeted that I had neglected to mention the cornerbacks.
“Where are my boys Dex and JJ?? They gonna kill this yr,” Chism tweeted. Got it, Cam.
*The receivers.Trivia: Who is the fastest receiver on Maryland’s roster?
It’s Amba Etta, a former high school sprinter. That’s what receivers coach Lee Hull told me.
So I’ll be watching Etta, as well as Stefon Diggs, who always seems to do something worth noting.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
