Terps signee Blue headed to prep school
Former Wilde Lake defensive lineman Cody Blue will take a detour before enrolling at Maryland.
The 6-foot-5, 270-pounder will spend the fall semester at Fork Union Military Academy in Fork Union, Va. Blue will play on the prep school’s post graduate football team and work on his academic status.
“[I have to raise] the test score just a bit, so I won’t be there very long,” said Blue, who intends to enroll at UM in January. “Just a semester and then I’ll get out of there.”
Blue, who will start at Fork Union in mid-August, said he’ll make the best out of his prep school stint.
“I mean if I had my way I’d probably go to Maryland first, but it’s all for the best,” Blue said. “Going to prep school, I get a chance to get a little more practice, get my grades up and get prepared for College Park.”
