Found February 06, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
The head coach of the Maryland Terrapins recently encountered quite a scare while on a recruiting visit in south Florida.Maryland's Randy Edsall and assistant coach Brian Stewart were heading to see defensive back prospect Will Likely of Belle Glade, Fla. for an in-home visit when the two were chased out of the neighborhood by multiple pickup trucks.Here's an excerpt of their story courtesy of D1scourse.com:"All it is is sugar cane fields. There's no lights. It's dark. It's 7, 8 o'clock at night. It's in December. I'm like 'This isn't right.' There's a railroad track there and all the sudden there's this development and there's probably 10 houses. It's like 'OK, here it is.' Take a left. Take a right. There's a church and some nice homes there. You go down and take another left and he says 'It's on this street.'It's so dark out you can't even see the numbers on the houses and he's going real, real slow. I said 'Brian, I'm telling you, this is not right, you know?' So he gets on the phone --- true story --- and he says 'Will, is your address this?' 'Yeah.' 'Well, we're here. Which one is your house?'We're looking and sitting there for probably five, seven minutes and he said 'It's not there,' so we start to go. We're going to take a left and here comes a pickup truck in this development and they're staring at us like 'What the heck are you guys doing in here?' Then we have a car that comes up behind us and I said 'Brian, I think we ought to get out of here.'We go and take a left and the next thing you know, we have both of them on our bumper in this little development as we get out on thus highway. Brian says 'Randy, hold on.' So we come flying out of this development and take a right. The pickup truck tries to rear-end us. The other one tries to go outside of us. He says 'Call 911.'I'm calling 911 and I'm getting on the phone and I say 'I'm the head coach of the University of Maryland, I'm out here. I know where we're at. We're getting chased. I didn't do anything. We need a police officer to come out here and make sure nothing happens.' We drive two and a half, three miles with these people chasing us and finally we get to this light and Brian outran them a little bit and get to the light and took a right and they stopped following us."Holy smokes!Edsall and his assistant didn't make the trip for nothing, though. Likely committed to Maryland on Dec. 21 and signed his official letter of intent on Wednesday.The 5-foot-7 senior at Glades Central High School is rated as a four-star prospect by Rivals.
