One thought on “Coaching Staff

  1. Another recruit out of state. What did College Park/Under Armour do that was so bad? Is it all about the money??? Do you not have ANY love for your home state. I didn’t even go to the University of Maryland but, even down here in the heart of ACC country, Maryland and College Park are always close to me.
