Cheeseboro Excited to Work With Edsall

Tyrek Cheeseboro excited that one of his favorite college coaches is now at MD.

After an abundance of news coupled with changes within the Maryland football program, the dust settled quickly as Head Coach Randy Edsall was hired; a move which sent the Terrapin team in a new direction. For many, this move raised a number of questions marks; however, for Senior recruit Tyrek Cheeseboro, the news couldn’t have been any better, “I was surprised, shocked, and excited about the choice,” said Cheeseboro.

During Cheeseboro’s recruitment, the six foot, 178 pound wide receiver from Milford Mill Academy in Baltimore, Maryland, was thoroughly impressed with Coach Edsall when they met during his junior year. Although the wideout later committed to the Terps, Cheeseboro said, “He was always one of my favorite coaches that I met during my time looking at schools.”

Since his commitment to Maryland, Cheeseboro had not spoken to Edsall until a few days after Maryland appointed their new head coach, “We already have a great relationship,” explained Cheeseboro. “We picked up right where we left off. I’m extremely happy I am going to be working under him.” Although Cheeseboro was pleased with the decision to name Edsall head coach, it was a biter-sweet hiring for the soon-to-be Terp, “Aside from the campus and the location of the school, the coaches were a major part of my commitment to the program,” said the recruit. “Coach Friedgen’s staff and I had a great relationship so it’s sad to see that go. I am just lucky that someone I already work well with is coming in next.”

When Head Coach Edsall and Cheeseboro spoke, the conversation focused on, “What he expects of me, and how I am going to fit in,” said Cheeseboro. As their conversation continued, Cheeseboro grew more pleased with what he heard, “I think I am going to fit in very well. I am going to have to fight for my spot at wideout as a freshmen, but I plan to be involved in the kick and punt return game,” said Cheeseboro.

Going forward, Cheeseboro sees the program’s new direction being tremendously positive for the team, “I think we are going to be extremely successful,” explained Cheeseboro. “He is a coach that wants to, and knows how to get things done. I can’t wait to take the field with him on the sidelines.”
