Maryland releases post-spring depth chart
By Heather Dinich
The Terps have released their summer depth chart, and there weren't many changes or surprises from how it looked in the spring.
Quarterback C.J. Brown, who was very limited this spring while he recovered from a torn ACL, is listed as the starter once again heading into summer camp. That should be refreshing news to Maryland fans, but sad news to Shawn Petty fans. Petty took over as the fifth-string starting quarterback last year, but he has since been relegated back to irrelevance as the team's third-string inside linebacker. Ouch. The good news is that Maryland's quarterbacks will be much, much healthier come August, as both Perry Hills and Caleb Rowe -- who also suffered torn ACLs last year -- are scheduled to be cleared in time for practice.
Maryland's running backs were a definite highlight for the Terps this spring, so much so that it's still unclear who the starter will be for the season opener. Brandon Ross, Albert Reid and Wes Brown will all compete for the starting job. Sal Conaboy will enter as the starting center.
