Wide Receiver



On Harrison: Senior with a great combination of size and athleticism … a versatile player who spent his first season at wide receiver a year ago … spent his first three years as a quarterback, but agreed while the team prepared for the Orange Bowl two years ago to shift to wide receiver to better utilize his skills … coaches suggested that he was too talented to risk not having him on the field … saw action as the Terps’ No. 2 quarterback in 2001 and showed superior talent running with the football … saw time last year as an option quarterback ... transition to receiver was relatively easy as his grasp of the offense was from a quarterback’s perspective … seems to run just as fast as he needs to in game situations … posted a 365-pound bench and 36 ˝-inch vertical jump in the spring … an excellent blocking receiver.

(vs. EMU) ... caught his first touchdown pass on a 19-yard reception in the third quarter ... finished the game with two catches for 32 yards ... (vs. Akron) ... made his first career reception (eight yards) ... broke a tackle in the backfield on his lone carry of the game, an end-around for 11 yards ... pancaked a Zip defender on a vicious “crackback” block.

2001 (Redshirt Sophomore): Played in four games … completed 5-of-14 passes for 25 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions … fifth on the team in rushing with 140 yards on 19 carries with one touchdown … averaged 7.4 yards per carry ... (vs. Duke) rushed five times for 47 yards including a six-yard touchdown run ... the touchdown was the first of his career ... was 2-of-3 passing for 12 yards ... (vs. TSU) played most of the second half ... rushed for 43 yards on seven carries ... also went 2-for-7 through the air for four yards ... had his first touchdown pass of the year called back on a holding penalty after throwing a beautiful 54-yard pass to Jafar Williams ... (vs. EMU) made his first appearance of the season in the third quarter ... finished the game second on the team in rushing with 50 yards on seven carries.

2000 (Sophomore): Redshirt season … named Maryland's top performing sophomore during 2000 spring drills … completed 7 of 10 passes for 96 yards and a 43-yard touchdown pass to Guilian Gary in the Red-White spring game … shared snaps with JC transfer Shaun Hill during the first part of spring drills.

1999 (Freshman): Saw action in six games as a true freshman quarterback and started the Terps' last two games (Florida State and Virginia) … assumed starting QB chores after Calvin McCall left the NC State game injured … finished the season 5 of 24 passing for 30 yards … all three interceptions came in the second half at NC State, filling in for McCall … sprained an ankle and left the FSU game in the second quarter.

High School: A 1999 graduate of Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta, Ga. ... one of the nation’s top-rated quarterbacks who passed for 2,400 yards and 27 touchdowns as a senior on his way to earning SuperPrep and PrepStar All-America honors and honorable mention All-American recognition by USA Today ... also intercepted seven passes in four games as his team’s free safety ... was a two-time first team all-state and all-city choice and the Atlantic public schools Player of the Year in 1998 ... was named to the state of Georgia’s Super 11 Team and to the Macon Touchdown Club’s Super 7 Team ... was rated the top QB in the state and among the top five QB’s in the Southeast Region ... was selected to play in the prestigious Georgia vs. Florida all-star game ... was 29-6 in three years as his high school team’s starting quarterback ... completed 63 of 115 passes for 1,130 yards and 22 touchdowns as a junior when he was named team MVP ... directed his team to records of 12-1 (1997) and 10-2 (1998) his final two seasons.
