There hasn’t been much word from Maryland’s backup quarterbacks. That’s usually what happens with an effective and non-injury prone starter in place.

But the topic came up today, and it would seem Jamarr Robinson isn’t quite as far out in front of the true freshmen as was previously believed.


“He is developing,” coach Ralph Friedgen said. “I think the other guy is developing, too, Danny O’Brien. I think they’re pretty close right now. Jamarr has his strengths and Danny has his strengths. I see them both getting better. I like the kids we have on the scout team. C.J. Brown, I like him. Clay Belton, I like him.”

Friedgen said Robinson has had a good week of practice, so he’s got that going for him. And maybe he’ll get the chance to play more this season.

But for now, it’s already looking like things will be a toss-up for next year’s quarterback race.
