A roundup of the latest Maryland football recruiting news including four players to watch following Dontay Demus Jr.’s commitment to the Terps football team.
Maryland football added another talented playmaker in Dontay Demus Jr. on Friday, June 2 when he committed during his visit to College Park, MD. Demus Jr. is a three-star recruit out of Washington D.C.’s Friendship Academy.
He ranks No. 127 for wide receivers and eighth place overall in Washington D.C. according to the 247Sports Composite. He committed to Maryland over Michigan State, Rutgers, Virginia Tech, Louisville and others.

Three-star 2018 athlete Trey Morrison announced his top six and Maryland made the cut along with Cincinnati, Louisville, North Carolina, West Virginia and Virginia. Watching film on Morrison, what stood out right away to me was his ability to be a threat on special teams.
He has speed and elusiveness working for him and on the defensive side of the ball, his ball skills and tackling are impressive. He’s being recruited by Maryland as a defensive back.
Legend Brumbaugh is transferring to Maryland after previously committing to Tennessee-Martin last year.

Maryland football recruiting: 4 players to watch
Eyabi Anoma, St. Frances Academy (Baltimore, Md.), Four-Star Defensive End
Anoma is a guy on my list to watch for simply because of his six-foot-five, 230-pound frame. Looking at film on Anoma, he is a pure pass rusher. He’s quick off the line of scrimmage and can shed blockers to get to the ball carrier without trouble. According to the
According to the 247Sports Composite, he’s the 50th best player nationally, third best weak-side defensive end and third best player in Maryland. He hasn’t solidified a top list yet but according to his 247Sports profile page, he’s warm on Penn State, Maryland and Alabama.
Rasheed Walker, North Point High School (Waldorf, Md.), Four Star Offensive Tackle
Walker was a first-team All-Conference player on offense and defense for the North Point Eagles who went 9-2 (9-1 Southern Maryland – Chesapeake Region) in 2016.
Walker had Maryland in his final six along with Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Penn State, North Carolina and Rutgers. Walker is impressive as a pass blocker but even more impressive as a run blocker. Maryland’s running game could benefit from his run blocking ability. He currently is the 11th best offensive tackle and the sixth best player in Maryland according to the 247Sports Composite. Check out his junior highlights.
Daniel George, Oxon Hill High School (Oxon Hill, Md.), Four Star Wide Receiver
One thing is clear about Daniel George. It doesn’t take him long to make a play after he gets the ball in his hands. His 2016 stats for the Oxon Hill Clippers prove just that: 45 receptions, 873 yards, 1,242 all-purpose yards and 20 touchdowns.
Darryl Jones, Princess Anne High School (Virginia Beach, Virginia) Three Star Wide Receiver
Darryl Jones is a deep threat down the field with the size to body up the defensive back he’s up against and the speed and elusiveness to make a play when it needs to be made.
According to the 247Sports Composite, Jones is No. 54 in wide receiver rankings and seventh best player in Virginia.
