Gaither entering the supplemental draft?

It looks pretty certain that the supplemental draft may have just picked up another quality prospect for the July 13th affair. Here's the latest on what we've been told.

The last several weeks have been topsy-turvy for Maryland offensive tackle Jared Gaither.

As we originally reported on May 31st, Gaither had a meeting planned with Maryland officials that week to decide his future.  The feeling was if he could not be reinstated for the '07 season he would leave the program and enter the supplemental draft.

Just three weeks later, after Gaither was officially declared academically ineligible for the '07 season, the early indications were he would stay at Maryland for at least two more years.

The past week we've heard numerous rumblings that Gaither was rethinking his options.

Rumors surfaced earlier today that Gaither was going to opt for the supplemental draft.  A source affiliated with the program told us tonight that Gaither has told people close to him that he will in fact be entering next months supplemental draft.

We will have more as the story develops.
