2011 Prospect Likes Terps

2011 quarterback prospect Anthony LiGregni plans to take a hard look at the Terps.

Class of 2011 quarterback Anthony LiGregni has started to narrow down his list of possible schools. The Bergen Catholic quarterback, who transferred from Ramsey High School in Ramsey, New Jersey this summer, rates Louisville and North Carolina State as his two favorite schools, followed by Rutgers, Maryland, Syracuse, UConn, and Michigan State. He has yet to receive an offer, but is hoping to collect them throughout the next year.

Of LiGregni's list of schools, NC State is the only one he has visited so far. However, LiGregni is planning on visiting Louisville, Maryland, Rutgers, and possibly Syracuse. While Maryland may not be LiGregni's favorite school at the moment, a positive visit could really vault it's position because of the fondness LiGregni has for the offense Head Coach Ralph Friedgen runs.

“I love the coaches, and everything at Maryland. I also love the location because I don't want to go too far from home and Maryland's perfect for me,” said LiGregni. “For football aspects, I love the offensive set-up, and that really attracts me there.”

However, there are other factors that LiGreni is considering. One of the most important ones deals with playing time and how many other quarterbacks there are on the roster to compete with.

“I want to see how many quarterbacks they have on their rosters and what class each quarterback is in so I have a better opportunity to start playing earlier,” LiGregni said.

Maryland, with a plethora of quarterbacks (Jamaar Robinson, Danny O'Brien, C.J. Brown, Tyler Smith, Devin Burns) on their roster for next season, may not suit LiGregni's playing time factor, but Maryland's location and offensive schemes seem to attract LiGregni enough cause serious consideration of the Terps at this stage of the recruiting process. A positive visit to College Park could be enough to launch Maryland into serious contention for LiGregni's services.
