According to Testudo Times, all of MD's verbal commitments signed LOI's except for Dallas Griffiths, a LB out of Florida, who switched to Liberty of all places.

Korren Kirven commits to Alabama, leaving basically DJ Reader and Stefon Diggs as the "big fish" left, though it sounds like both are unlikely (Reader leaning Clemson, and Diggs, well, just don't see us landing a top 10 recruit just yet).

Reader stuck with Clemson. Diggs plans to announce Feb 10. Heard he will be visiting UM for the UNC game this weekend. The fact that he seemed all but certain to sign with Florida a few days ago is certainly reason for optimism. Still, I just can't hold my breath at this point.

Diggs or no, I think it's a decent class when you consider all of the turmoil that has surrounded the program. The additions of Reid and Brown late made a huge difference, even if it's mostly perception. Although I really would have liked to see some D-linemen in this class to boost the weakest unit on the team. It doesn't look like we can expect any sort of upgrades there this season or in the near future. Braglio is the only DL listed in this class, but at 235 lbs he may be destined for OLB in the 3-4 defense they plan to run.

Even if Diggs does not commit, where our recruiting class is considering how our season ended is pretty special. Locksley did some crazy work. Give him a full year to recruit, with hopefully a better product to recruit to, and we should see some pretty cool things this upcoming recruiting season.

Feb 10.....lots of big time schools in running

I heard he's having a visit at MD this weekend for the UNC game. Hopefully he has a good time. This is the type of signing that SEC schools take for granted but a guy like Diggs could really help us out. He'd be our second biggest recruit ever and the biggest recruit to not land in prison prior to suiting up (I hope).

Diggs will announce Friday at 10PM on Comcast Sports Net Washington.

So he's only announcing on CSN Washington? Or it's a network feed that's picked up by CSN and will also be shown on other RSNs? Because if it's only on CSN Wash that would seem to be in MD's favor....since most of the other schools he's considering don't get that station in their area.

That's what I thought. He's clearly the best prospect remaining. He could definitely announce on ESPNU if he wanted to. But, he's deciding to announce on CSN Washington. Seems like a possible good sign to me. He also was wearing a Maryland t-shirt when he came to visit during the UNC game. I've never seen another recruit do that either. Of course, all of that could mean nothing.

Yeah, I don't put much into the shirt thing. But it would be highly unusual to announce your college choice on a DMV-area sports network to say you're going to Florida or Auburn.

Yeah, none of this could possibly be a bad sign. Whether it's a good sign or just meaningless remains to be seen.

    • If you’d asked me a few weeks ago, I probably would have told you that I didn’t care if Aaron Judge hit homer 60, 61 or 62 against us.    I’m not sure what’s changed, but in the words of the great Mox from Varsity Blues, “I say, ‘**** that.’”  I do not want to see our guys pitching to him this weekend.    I do not want to see Judge (who, for the record, I don’t have much of a problem with) celebrating at our expense. I don’t want to see his teammates celebrating at our expense. I sure as hell don’t want to see their fans celebrating at our expense.    Nothing would please me more this weekend than seeing Yankee fans crying about how we walked Judge 12-15 times over three games and how they bought tickets to see him hit #62 and blah blah blah.  Nothing would please me more than, after years of seeing Judge destroy our pitching, giving him absolutely nothing to hit and having him stand on first base all weekend while the boos rain down. I want us to be the bad guys. I want us to be the killjoys.  I do not want Hyde to give in. And even if he does have our guys pitch to Judge, I want our guys to be smart and throw everything in the dirt. Or airmail it over the home plate umpire.    I doubt it happens.  I’m sure some poor sap like Baumann or Baker or Krehbiel or  Reed will go down in history as the sucker who grooved a belt high fastball to Judge for #62. He’ll be on replays forever.  And after the game he’ll give some stock answer about “wanting to challenge him” or something which is silly because our pitching hasn’t ever been a challenge for Judge.    So, Hyde and/or Elias, if you’re reading, just walk Judge all weekend long. Make the Yankees and their fans miserable. Be the bad guys. Don’t let anyone have fun at our expense. It’s a new era for Orioles baseball, we’re no longer a laughingstock. No longer a team to set records against. No longer a team to beat up on.  Do not give in.    Milligan, out. 
    • I think it's pretty simple... they like him more than Tyler Nevin as a backup 1B, and they don't trust anyone else on the team to play first base. There were reports of Santander and Gunnar taking reps at first but nothing saying that the results were passable. I'm guessing they didn't like what they saw.
    • Not to mention this was AFTER Hays ruined the chances last night by GIDP against Barnes and like clockwork he repeats the feat. So yea Mullins just might have been a better option there.
    • Well, Chirinos did hit a homer!  
    • I feel like Elias has decided recently that they are out of it, and now its about securing better odds for the draft lottery by putting out lineups like today's.
