Coxson just arrived in Gainesville this summer. He'll sit out this season per NCAA transfer rules and have four years of eligibility left.
Recruitniks will have a field day with the addition, and more often than not a guy who Urban Meyer took the time to chase after and sign will end up paying dividends if he lands at your program (Maryland is 0-for-1 in that category so far after Josh Portis played sparingly in three years on campus).
As for those who want something other than high school stats, 40 times and stars allocated from recruiting services to drive their evaluation of a player, here's a more concrete take: Coxson could help Maryland very early in his career.
Just take a look at the Terrapins' nine scholarship receivers and their career stats (G/GS, Receptions-Yards-TD):
Adrian Cannon (32/11, 50-611-5)
Emani Lee-Odai (33/1, 17-202-0)
LaQuan Williams (25/8, 27-335-1)
Tony Logan (16/0, 0-0-0)
Quintin McCree (15/2, 5-24-0)
Torrey Smith (25/16, 85-1160-7)
Ronnie Tyler (25/6, 48-571-2)
Kerry Boykins (10/1, 6-79-0)
Kevin Dorsey (12/0, 3-17-0)
REDSHIRT FRESHMEN (2012)
TRUE FRESHMEN (2013)
COMMITMENTS/STASHED IN PREP SCHOOL (2013/2014)

If Smith turns pro after this season --- as he very well might --- that will leave five experienced scholarship receivers. And despite the best efforts of 2006 Maryland to convince folks of something otherwise, it's probably smart to have more than three or four receivers who can be trusted to be on the field at a given time.
Things are even dicier in 2012, when the position morphs into full-fledged "hole-in-the-program" status and the Terps will have no more than two upperclassmen (Boykins and Dorsey) at receiver.
The sheer number of bodies suggest Coxson, should he back up his recruiting hype, has a chance to play as a freshman and could well be a major factor in Maryland's offense by 2012. The Terps might still have questions at wideout by then, but the addition of Coxson certainly could offset some of those concerns before anyone outside the Maryland coaching staff really started to realize any worries existed.
