Maryland football recruiting landed another local recruit and teammate of Vincent Flythe, Noah Boykin. Boykin is now Maryland football’s 14th commit of the 2018 class.
Maryland football snagged a commitment from another local recruit in their backyard in Noah Boykin as he announced his commitment via Twitter Wednesday, July 5. Boykin is now the second H.D. Woodson High School (Washington D.C) commit to join the University of Maryland football team. The only other target the Terps have from the school is the three-star wideout, Edward Hendrix.
The Maryland Terrapins scoring a commitment from Boykin could bode well for them when trying to lure Hendrix to the Terps football team. Boykin is Maryland’s 14th commit of the 2018 class. He chose Maryland over Oklahoma, Michigan, Michigan State and others.
Noah Boykin is ranked the No. 47 cornerback and No. 3 best player in Washington D.C. according to the 247ports Composite. Noah Boykin shines on both sides of the ball for the H.D. Woodson Warriors as a cornerback and wide receiver. At cornerback, he has great ball skills and speed. He covers well in man coverage and when he has to be in run pursuit, he makes the plays necessary to help his defense.
As a wide receiver, his speed and hands show off more and from what I can tell in talking to recruits who play both wide receiver and cornerback, knowing each position helps especially the mental aspect and knowing what the guy in front of you is going to do before they do it.
For Maryland football, you could put him on either side of the ball and he’ll surely make his share of plays.
This is another solid pickup for Maryland football as their recruiting class getting better and better as the summer goes on and by the end of it all, Maryland could have a top 15 or top 10 recruiting class nationally and their already the fifth-ranked class in the Big Ten Conference.
