C.J. Brown, Jerry Lovelocke named to Unitas Award watch list

C.J. Brown first arrived at Maryland in 2009, a three-star, dual-threat quarterback from Pennsylvania who then-coach Ralph Friedgen saw as a future star. Now, as Brown enters his sixth year in College Park, he finally is expected to live up to those expectations.


Brown was joined on the list by Baltimore native Jerry Lovelocke of Prairie View A&M, another dual threat, who threw 23 touchdown passes and rushed for nine more last season. Lovelocke was recruited by local schools such as Towson and Morgan State coming out of Edmondson but ultimately opted for the Texas-based Panthers instead.

Prairie View, which plays in the Southwestern Athletic Conference, went 5-4 last season.
