Maryland fans got re-introduced to redshirt freshman D.J. Adams last week when he ran for 84 yards and a touchdown --- nearly all of it in the second half --- in a 62-14 pummeling of Wake Forest.
Adams had precisely one carry in Maryland's five previous games --- a one-yard rush against Duke on Oct. 2.
Coach Ralph Friedgen has indicated Adams could have a larger role Saturday for the Terrapins (6-2, 3-1 ACC), who visit Miami (5-3, 3-2) in an early-afternoon game.
Adams is a powerful rusher, and has barely any wear and tear on him this season. While he's not lobbying for playing time and remains patient, he's also in great condition to contribute down the stretch.
“Week in and week out, you can get little knick-knack injuries that are kind of annoying, but I don’t have those,” Adams said. “I’m fresh. I like to think November football is when it starts to really, really count. I’m here if they need me, and I’m ready to go.”
