Maryland’s Tony Logan to serve as backup QB; LB Alex Twine will not play vs. Wake Forest

Maryland Coach Randy Edsall said Thursday in a teleconference with reporters that wide receiver/return man Tony Logan will back up C.J. Brown at quarterback on Saturday against Wake Forest.

Brown will make his fourth start of the season with Danny O’Brien out for the season with a broken bone in his upper non-throwing arm.

Logan played quarterback in high school. As a high school senior, the elusive Logan threw for 1,500 yards with 10 touchdowns. He also ran for 500 yards and five touchdowns.

Troy Jones, a freshman walk-on who has not seen action this season, will serve as the third-string quarterback against Wake Forest.

Another development in Thursday’s teleconference was that Edsall said that linebacker Alex Twine, who earned ACC rookie of the week honors after his 12-tackle performance against Notre Dame, will not make the trip to Wake Forest because of an undisclosed injury. Twine is not necessarily ruled out for the season finale at North Carolina State on Nov. 26.

If Edsall does not shuffle the other starting linebackers, then freshman Cole Farrand likely would start in Twine’s weak-side slot.

Only 60 Maryland players will be traveling to the Wake Forest game, Edsall said.
