"Well this is something we have always done: I don't let my guys recruit anywhere outside the state of Maryland until they have evaluated every in-state student-athlete. I can't promise we're going to take them all, but I made a promise to the Maryland State Coaches Association that we would evaluate every kid, we would be in every school, and we would take care of our state above all else. And we have to. It's a balancing act. There are some previous negative connotations of our football team in the last 15 years. Since we've been Division I, we've been scholarship, non-scholarship, need-based aid, and we haven't really kept a strong foundation from which to work. That's negatively affected our perception. So we have to find the kid who wants to be here, while doing a thorough evaluation of everyone who is in the state."
