Terps' 2010 class: More from Mike Farrell

Most of the quotes I got from recruiting analyst Mike Farrell were used in Monday's story on Maryland's 2010 football recruiting class. Here a couple more thoughts from Farrell.

On potential sleepers: “[I like] Mario Rowson from Virginia. He’s a three-star kid that’s tall and lanky and needs to fill out. But he’s a really athletic kid. ... I have to assume there’s going to be a surprise, maybe one of these athletes like Jeremiah Wilson, Matt Robinson or Devin Burns. It depends on what position they play. They might be able to step in early.”

On the Terps’ local recruiting: “They’ve got good relationships in the area. They did pretty good in Maryland. Of their top guys, Javarie Johnson is a Maryland kid, Nate Clarke is a Maryland kid, David Mackall is a Maryland kid, Titus Till is a Maryland kid. Those four guys are rated four stars or more and they’re all Maryland kids. But they have some good relationships with coaches in Pennsylvania and they did a good job in Georgia this year. They went down to Florida and took a couple of those kids. They have to win more than two games to lock down the state, but even when they were winning, they still had trouble locking down the state. That’s the key to having a better class than this. But they do a good job in other states to make up for that.”
