Things aren’t going all that great right now for the Maryland football program. The Terrapins are just 2-4 and just fired their coach Randy Edsall.
Still, if Terps football fans want a glimmer of hope for the future, they can look no further than running back recruit Lorenzo Harrison.
Harrison, out of DeMatha high school in Hyattsville, MD got his chance to show his skills on national TV on Friday night as his team’s game against Gonzaga high school was broadcast on ESPN, and he did not disappoint.
On this run, Harrison ran straight ahead and directly into a pile for what looked like it would be only a short gain. However, the Terps recruit had other ideas as he somehow spun his way out of the pile before going down, and then took it 92-yards for the touchdown, juking a couple Gonzaga defenders on his way to the end zone.
Harrison’s touchdown run is reminiscent of the run by his future Big Ten rival De’Veon Smith, who scored in similar spectacular fashion for Michigan earlier this season against BYU.
Who knows who the coach of Maryland will be by the time Harrison arrives on campus, but assuming he sticks to his commitment, whoever it is may just have himself a stud at the running back position.
