Injuries and ineffectiveness led to plenty of changes on Maryland’s depth chart this week.

The most notable new name in a starting position: Redshirt freshman safety Titus Till, who is listed in the spot Matt Robinson occupied before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury.


A.J. Hendy, a true freshman, is listed as Till’s backup. Hendy has yet to play this season.

Among the other changes …

* With a full complement of receivers, Quintin McCree is listed as a starting wideout. Ronnie Tyler and Tony Logan are listed as backups. Kerry Boykins,  who led Maryland in receptions Saturday, is no longer on the Terps’ depth chart.

* As promised by coach Randy Edsall on Sunday, Maurice Hampton is listed as Maryland’s second starter at defensive tackle. The Terps’ second-string defensive tackles are Darius Kilgo and A.J. Francis. Redshirt freshman Andre Monroe is injured and not expected to play.

* With Darin Drakeford shelved, Lorne Goree will start at middle linebacker and Demetrius Hartsfield will shift to the weak side. True freshman Cole Farrand is listed as the No. 2 middle linebacker.

* Austin Walker, who was listed as Robinson’s backup, is now the backup to safety Eric Franklin.

Overall, Maryland has seven freshmen in its defensive two-deep this week.
