Maryland football gained the oral commitment of Caleb Porzel, a running back from Good Counsel High School in Olney. He isn't a big back but has excellent speed and good vision. Expect him to be a factor as a third down back and returner. You can see a highlight package on the video below. He joins Drew Gloster as another Good Counsel player to attend Maryland. Teammate Jelani Jenkins is one of the most coveted linebackers in the nation.
Maryland had more good news recently as Forestville defensive end Deonte Arnett chose Maryland. Arnett is a 4-star player with great size, 6-4 235 pounds, and may grow into a formidable end. Maryland hasn't had a reliable pass rushing end since Kevin Eli.
The news wasn't so good for the basketball team as 2009 recruit Dante Taylor picked Pitt over Maryland and others. The 5-star power forward was dominating in summer AAU play and is a likely high school All-American at a position the Terps desperately need help. Williams and his staff now need to scramble to find some 2009 frontcourt help.
