Jermaine Carter, Juan Dixon, Scott Feldman, Marlon Humphrey and Melo Trimble all chimed in on Glenn Clark Radio this month. Here's what they had to say:
"I grew up a fan of the Miami Hurricanes. Playing video games, I noticed that if you looked at their roster in 2000, 2001, in those times, most of the guys were from Florida. And that's just one of the things that I want to help be a part of the change. I want to make us into like how Miami was. That's just one of the things for guys who want to stay home -- we can build the same thing or be even better."
- Maryland linebacker/Fort Washington, Md., native Jermaine Carter Jr. April 20 on the importance of getting kids from Maryland to come to College Park
"It was an opportunity that presented itself that I knew I had to take advantage of. I didn't even think about the bad. I thought about where Coach Fang Mitchell had this program years ago. I think about the growth of Coppin State University, the campus. And I just thought it was an amazing opportunity to live out my purpose and let people see the passion I have for developing young men. This is something I dreamt for a long time while I was playing. I knew I wanted to coach."
- Terps legend/Baltimore native Juan Dixon April 27 on considering the good and the bad before taking the coaching job at Coppin State
"He'd get my vote if I had one. I think so. Also, not too many guys have had as many wins as he's had as a manager and starred on Seinfeld. So that in its own right is good enough for me!"
- Reds pitcher/former Oriole Scott Feldman April 20 on whether his former manager Buck Showalter should be in the Hall of Fame if he wins a World Series
"For me, when you think of [the] Ravens, you think of defense. I'm sure the offense is great, but when I think of the Ravens, I think of defense. Smash mouth defense, it's kind of what they build on, just dominant. Me coming from Alabama, I feel like Alabama's a big defensive place, too. So going to the Ravens, it's just a little bit more amped kind of on that defense. I'm really excited to join that."
- Ravens first-round pick/former Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey April 28 on joining the Baltimore defense
"I've been here for three years now, and I just knew. I wanted to leave last year, so I put my name in the draft, and things didn't work out the way I wanted [them] to. So I knew that this year would be the best chance for me to put my name in the draft because I was healthy. Even though things didn't go always my way [this season], I still thought it was the best idea for me."
- Former Maryland point guard Melo Trimble May 2 on his decision to leave school after his junior season
