Terps on Broyld's List

2011 quarterback prospect with Terps lineage checks in with TSR.

Ashton Broyld is having a busy summer before his senior year starts at Rush-Henrietta High School in New York.

Broyld has been honing his quarterback skills at camps at Pittsburgh and Virginia.

“I’m learning a lot, and that’s the most important thing,” Broyld said. He is focusing more on, “certain mechanics because there’s a certain way to throw the ball.”

Perfecting the quarterback position is not Broyld only option, as some schools are looking to move his 6-foot-4, 225-pound frame to other positions, but that’s all he knows.

“I’m a quarterback,” said Broyld. “If a team doesn’t want to give me a shot at quarterback, it’s pretty much out of the question.”

While he is hearing from schools including Rutgers, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Eastern Michigan, Virginia, he thinks that is the case at Maryland.

However, Broyld is keeping his option open and waiting until sometime after basketball season to make his decision. Until then, he is, “still open”

Broyld went to Maryland last year for junior day, and may be planning a visit to College Park.

Maryland is unique to Broyld because his father played football there. However that is only a minor factor into his decision.”

“I still have to discuss that with my dad and family. If I get around the coaches and I’m comfortable with it, then I’ll make my decision,” said Broyld.

Other factors for Broyld include, “offense, coaching staff, history, and a lot more stuff I will look into.” He also added, “I need to go to a school where I’ll be able to graduate.”

Until decision time, Broyld is crafting the art of his position, quarterback.

“It’s a lot more that people don’t know, and I’ve been learning a lot about it,” he said.
