Just got back from lovely Westminster, Md., where Maryland's Ralph Friedgen and Navy's Ken Niumatalolo paid a visit to the Baltimore Ravens' training camp and briefly chatted with reporters as a lead-up to their meeting Sept. 6 at M&T Bank Stadium.
It wasn't a particularly newsworthy day, and thankfully no one asked either coach about the importance of strength in football. (Don't laugh. Gary Williams has been asked about the importance of height in basketball within the last two seasons.)
It wasn't a particularly newsworthy day, and that's fine. Off to the side, Friedgen said he hadn't heard yet about the academic status of either defensive tackle Zach Kerr or wideout Ronnie Tyler. Both took classes over the summer and are waiting to hear back on grades.
Tyler is penciled in to start in the slot. Kerr figures to start camp as a backup to either A.J. Francis or Joe Vellano, if not both.
Those would seem to be the only major personnel questions lingering with camp opening next week. And for an answer, check back in almost exactly a week.
