Maryland Coach Randy Edsall was at Quince Orchard on Friday afternoon to meet with Coach Dave Mencarini and stayed to watch the third-ranked Cougars and standout junior linebacker Marcus Newby beat Gaithersburg, 35-0.

Newby planned to attend the Terrapins’ game Saturday against Boston College. Maryland extended a scholarship offer to the hard hitter on Friday.

“He’s been down there in the spring, visited in the summer and was down at one of their two-a-days before the season,” Mencarini said. “They’ve been recruiting him.”

Newby already holds scholarship offers from Virginia Tech, Rutgers and Central Florida.
