COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland head coach Randy Edsall said Tuesday that the quarterback battle would likely have a resolution by the time his team takes the field Wednesday for an intrasquad scrimmage.
Considering his comments Monday to ESPN 980 and the splitting of reps Tuesday at practice, there seems to be a solid indication of which path he may choose to go.
Here is the full quarterback report from Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2015:
Perry Hills, junior
Edsall said Monday during his radio appearance that his message to Hills, who is said to have the lead in the race for the starting job, is to continue to do what he was doing if he wants to remain in that position.
Tuesday, he did what he has been doing.
Hills wasn’t necessarily brilliant, but he continued to be solid in the short passing game. He does not have the arm strength of some of his counterparts, but that’s not the only attribute the staff has been assessing.
He had two of the nicest passes of practice among the quarterbacks, one a touch pass to Kenny Goins for a touchdown during full 11-on-11 and another a touchdown to tight end Derrick Hayward in the back of the end zone during a red zone drill.
He threw one interception to cornerback Sean Davis.
Daxx Garman, graduate transfer
Edsall said Monday that Garman was a “close second” in the race against Hills and he, too, was solid on Tuesday. The question is if he did enough to overtake Hills.
Garman did not throw an interception, though he came close by once throwing a ball that was dropped by the defender.
Caleb Rowe, fifth-year senior
Rowe has faded back into the third-string spot for now, with Edsall saying that the veteran knows the things that he needs to work on to improve.
Some of the struggles continued early, which included an overthrow and an interception by cornerback Darnell Savage.
