Maryland didn’t tweak much on its depth chart, and two of the three most noticeable changes were already known before the Terrapins issued their weekly release.
Overall, there were five adjustments:
1. Justus Pickett is the No. 1 tailback, ahead of Albert Reid.
Coach Randy Edsall said this would be the case Sunday. Reid started the opener in place of the injured Brandon Ross (hamstring), but Pickett scored the game’s lone touchdown, was more effective on a per-carry basis and did not lose a fumble (Reid did).
2. Caleb Rowe is the outright No. 2 quarterback.
The true freshman was listed as a co-backup with Devin Burns entering last week. Neither got in the game, but Rowe is the only player listed behind starter Perry Hills heading into Saturday’s trip to Temple.
3. Nathan Renfro is the starting punter ahead of Brad Craddock.
After Renfro averaged 53 yards a punt against William & Mary, this was pretty easy to see coming.
4. Levern Jacobs is the No. 2 kickoff returner.
Jacobs takes over the spot from the injured Ross. Jacobs didn’t appear on the kickoff return team Saturday; the two men in front of starting return man Stefon Diggs were Wes Brown and Marcus Leak.
5. Jeff Hernandez is the outright No. 2 fullback.
Freshman Kenneth Goins Jr. is no longer listed. Neither Goins nor Hernandez played Saturday, so this is far from a major change.
