4-star Terps QB commit styles game after Super Bowl champ


4-star Terps QB commit styles game after Super Bowl champ

Watch SportsTalk Live’s full interview with Haskins in the video player above, which will begin momentarily.

Four-star Maryland quarterback commit Dwayne Haskins will be a foundational building block of the Terrapins’ offense in the future after pledging his name to head coach Randy Edsall on Friday.

A pro-style quarterback, Haskins is rated No. 4 overall at the position in the class of 2016 by But for those who haven’t seen him play, what is he like?

He joined Michael Jenkins and Doc Walker Friday night on SportsTalk Live after committing to Maryland and revealed the player that he tries to mirror when he is under center.


“[Green Bay Packers QB] Aaron Rodgers, for sure, is somebody I try to emulate a lot in my game,” Haskins said. “He’s not looking to run, but if he needs to run he can do it. Very deadly with his arm, accurate and never gets too rattled, is always prepared to throw the ball so he’s really good.”

Maryland’s system under Edsall has often featured a running quarterback like C.J. Brown, but has also functioned (better sometimes, even) under a more pro-style quarterback like Caleb Rowe.

Walker chimed in after Haskins made mention of Rodgers.

“And he’s not just talking because I saw this young man, again, and what impressed me he rolled out of the pocket and had space, but opted to wait until his receiver came open and he uncovered him with the ball,” Walker explained as Haskins smiled.

“He threw where the guy should be instead of throwing where he was and a lot of young guys don’t do that and he already had that, so he’s ahead of the game.”

Dustin Clark to part ways with Maryland basketball


Dustin Clark to part ways with Maryland basketball

Maryland basketball head coach Mark Turgeon announced earlier today that assistant coach Dustin Clark is parting ways with the program to pursue an opportunity in Texas with a family business. 

In three seasons as a full-time assistant, Clark was responsible for recruiting Kevin Huerter and Anthony Cowan Jr., along with incoming freshman Aaron Wiggins. 

The 35-year-old also made a point to recruit overseas, spending much of his time at the Canaris Basketball Academy in the Canary Islands, where he found former Terps center Michal Cekovsky and current redshirt freshman forward Joshua Tomaic. 

Clark will become the second member of Turgeon's staff to leave the team following this past season. Nima Omidvar, who was brought on to replace Clark as director of basketball operations in 2014, walked away to become a full-time assistant coach at South Alabama in April. 

At the start of the 2018-19 season, Bino Ranson will be the only original member of Turgeon's staff. 

Matt Brady, who has had previous head coaching stints at James Madison and Marist, will replace Clark. 

In his eight years at JMU, Brady won 139 games and enjoyed four seasons with 20 wins or more. His 2012-13 team won the Colonial Athletic Association and reached the NCAA tournament. He finished with a 73-50 overall record after four seasons at Marist. 

The news comes after a season in which the team failed to make the NCAA tournament with an overall record of 19-13, including 8-10 in Big Ten play.
