News and notes from Maryland coach Randy Edsall’s weekly teleconference

April 25, 2011

A few tidbits from Maryland football coach Randy Edsall’s teleconference earlier today:

Senior fullback Taylor Watson informed Edsall on Monday that he plans to graduate this summer and will not be with the team in the fall. Watson played in the last 11 games in 2010 after healing from a right knee injury and ended the season as the Terrapins’ top fullback. His departure leaves fifth-year senior Haroon Brown and redshirt freshman Rahsaan Moore as the top two contenders for the starting fullback job entering the fall. …

Edsall said freshman wide receiver Nigel King has been cleared to practice while the player’s NCAA Clearinghouse appeal remains unsettled. King will practice with the team during its two workouts this week, but likely won’t appear in Saturday’s spring game.

“I don’t know if he’ll do anything on Saturday, because again, just the limited number of practices that he’ll have in and really not know too much or anything that’s going on,” Edsall said. …

For the second time in as many teleconferences, Edsall praised the recent efforts of sophomore offensive lineman Josh Cary. In fact, Edsall said that, as of now, Cary has secured the starting job at right guard. Sophomore Pete White and junior Justin Lewis also had been in competition for that spot.
