Head coach Randy Edsall and his staff signed 17 players on National Signing Day last week, but now the focus shifts to those prospects whom the Terrapins are targeting in 2015. With that comes a rearrangement of the the recruiting map.
Maryland added three coaches to the coaching staff following the 2013 season: Greg Studrawa as the offensive line coach, Chad Wilt as the defensive line coach, and Keenan McCardell as the wide receivers coach.
At a National Signing Day press conference, the staff laid out the recruiting areas for each of those new members of the staff:
Greg Studrawa, offensive line coach
Locally: Fredrick County, Md. | Carroll County, Md.
Nationally: Western Pennsylvania | Cincinnati, Ohio | Cleveland, Ohio
Studrawa, who comes from LSU, is a native of Ohio. That makes him an asset in the region and a natural fit to take over Maryland’s recruiting push in Big Ten country.
Chad Wilt, defensive line coach
Locally: Montgomery County, Md. | Allegany County, Md. | Garrett County, Md. | Washington County, Md.
Nationally: Central to East Virginia | Hampton Roads, Va. | Richmond, Va. | Chicago, Ill. | Indianapolis, Ind.
Wilt comes to Maryland from Ball State, so Indianapolis and Chicago in the Midwest are areas within which Wilt has ties. He will also be in charge of the important recruiting grounds of southeast Virginia.
Keenan McCardell, wide receivers coach
Nationally: Houston, Texas | North Florida
A native of Houston, Texas, it appears Maryland is going to try to make a push in the area. He is also part of the way that the Terrapins will divide up Florida. Speaking of Florida, offensive coordinator Mike Locksley is in charge of the central part of the state, including Orlando, while defensive coordinator Brian Stewart is in charge of the Miami area.
