MM 1.15 Maryland alum Randy White named 35th best player in college football history

Former Maryland football player Randy White was named the 35th best player in college football history by ESPN in the publication’s top 150 college football players of all-time list released Monday.

Recruited from Thomas McKean High School in Wilmington, Delaware, White was originally brought onto the Terps as a fullback, but was switched to defensive line after a quiet freshman season. The switch proved to be beneficial for White, as he went on to break school records and garner national attention.

In 1974, White set the Maryland record in tackles for loss in a single season with 122 — a record not broken to this day.
