PHILADELPHIA -- Maryland has offered running back Jamal Abdur-Rahman (Philadelphia/LaSalle College High) a scholarship and right now it looks the the Terps are in good shape for the 5-foot-10, 180-pounder.

"I like the coaches [at Maryland]," Abdur-Rahman said. "They've had an interest in me since the beginning of my junior season. That speaks a lot to me. [Maryland running backs coach John Donovan] says that he cares more about my speed than my size because I am not naturally 6-0, 200 pounds, so they like me for who I am."
