Maryland football recruiting received an out of state commitment from Haverford High School Outside Linebacker Jordan Mosley. Mosley is now Maryland football’s 17th commit of the 2018 class.
Maryland football snagged a commitment from Jordan Mosley out of Havertown, Pa. Mosley announced the commitment via Twitter Monday night July 17. Mosley is now the fourth out of state commit the Terps were able to get.
According to the 247Sports Composite, Jordan Mosley is the No.83 outside linebacker and No.29 best player in Pennsylvania. He chose Maryland over his home state school Penn State, Minnesota, Rutgers and others.
With the addition of Jordan Mosley, Maryland now has the No.17 2018 recruiting class nationally and are still sitting at No.3 in the Big Ten recruiting class standings.
He is a linebacker with speed and his coverage ability stands out. Typically, linebackers aren’t known for being coverage guys. They’re more downhill run stopping and pass rushing players so for Mosley to have the necessary coverage skills needed to make plays in the passing game, that could help him ingratiate himself as a freshman coming into College Park.
For Maryland football, pass rushing and coverage from their linebackers is what they need. Fortunately for them, Jordan Mosley has that.
The Maryland coaching staff must have made quite the impression on him to seal his commitment over Penn State. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound linebacker will definitely add something to the Terps defensive moving toward the future.
This is another solid pickup for Maryland football as their recruiting class continues to improve. They missed out getting the commitment of four-star Oxon Hill High School Wide Receiver Daniel George to Penn State. So this recent commitment will offset that one. The more recruits in the near future Maryland is able to get, the better off they will be for the 2018 class.
