“They said I had a previous knee injury, so that was their excuse to pull my scholarship,” said McGill, who tore his posterior cruciate ligament during his sophomore year. “I had an MRI done. [Maryland] called me about it [and] told me their team doctors said I needed total reconstruction of my PCL, but my doctor said I didn’t need it. He doesn’t recommend that I need to have surgery.”
I wonder what Tugard thinks of the UMD medical staff.
Demetri McGill won't sign with Maryland next month after the Terps pulled his scholarship last weekend.

He'll thank those MD doctors at some point.
JO, will UVA get involved with this kid? Especially with the news about Braithwaite.
Edsall=East coast Kiffin.
Not JO, but I wouldn't think so. The article made it seem like he wasn't going to be admitted to UMD because of academics.
I've seen him play in person a few times this past season. I was never particularly impressed. I should point out that I dont know the kid, nor have I ever talked to him, but I know a few teachers (married to one of them) in his school. He just comes off as kinda lazy, for lack of a better word, to me. He takes his sweet time getting on and off the field between plays, no hustle about him. He doesn't look very athletic for a lineman. When he stands next to Nnadi, McGill looks like a fat kid playing football. In contrast, Nnadi looks like a very large, athletic man playing DL. McGill is big and heavy, but he looks soft in the middle with skinny legs. Nnadi is big an heavy and looks pretty solid.
I'm no expert in judging talent, but that's my take.
i dont think he has the grades for UVA
I hope not ... potential to be a very good player but the way he walks on to the field when the rest of defense jogs out to their positions is a joke. It is also my understanding that he can have very poor practice habits. We don't need him!
It's like the poster said above he doesn't have the grades to get into UVA.
WAHOO 4 LIFE!!
