Maryland Football: Terps Land 2019 St. Joseph QB David Summers

Maryland football picked up their first quarterback of the 2019 class, 2017 state champion with the St. Joseph Cadets (Conn.), David Summers. Summers gives the Terps their sixth commit for 2019.

Maryland football received another commitment in the 2019 class from David Summers and he chose the Terps over Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Buffalo, Central Connecticut State and more.

He announced his commitment on Twitter Monday. He joins Bishop Sullivan Catholic four-star cornerback Tayvion Land as the second commitment the Terps received in May.

With the addition of David Summers, Maryland football still sits at No. 43 in the 2019 national recruiting class standings, and 10th best in Big Ten recruiting.

As a member of the St. Joseph Cadets (13-1, 5-1 Fairfield County East) in 2017, Summers led his team to a state championship, defeating the Ansonia Chargers 42-3. Statistically, Summers was stellar as he threw for 3,227 yards, 49 touchdowns, and five interceptions.

He completed 65 percent of his passes and was named Connecticut All-State Top 25, Walter Camp First Team All-State and  New Haven Register All-State.

David Summers is a pure pocket passer with a strong arm and accuracy. He has good footwork to go along with the vision necessary to see open receivers down the field.

The fact that he threw just under 50 touchdowns and only five interceptions proves that he knows how to take care of the football. If he put up these numbers in his junior season, his senior season next fall may be scary.

From the looks of his film, he could be a good fit for the Terps as a nice change of pace in terms of quarterback style of play, seeing as Tyrrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill are mobile quarterbacks.

Who knows? When Summers begins his collegiate career at the University of Maryland in 2019, he could work himself into getting some playing time. If that doesn’t happen right away, it’s going to happen for sure. This kid is good.
