Fresh faces: Maryland

Here are a few Terps you'll likely get to know this fall:

DL Joe Vellano, Soph.: He played sparingly in just five games as a redshirt freshman last season after breaking his foot in the preseason. He had an impressive spring and emerged as one of the top interior defensive linemen. “Vellano had an exceptional spring,” coach Ralph Friedgen said. “If we had a most valuable player award, he probably would have gotten it.”

DL Drew Gloster, Sr.: Gloster has been moved around a lot since coming to College Park, but he played well this spring in his first time at defensive end. He has played mostly on special teams in his career, but the former tight end and linebacker may have finally found a home as defensive coordinator Don Brown would like some speed off the edge.

OL Justin Gilbert, Soph.: He played in 11 games in 2009 as a reserve, but has big shoes to fill as he is expected to start the left tackle spot vacated by Bruce Campbell. “Gilbert showed vast improvement in the spring,” Friedgen said.
