One safety decommits, another commits to Terps football

Four days before National Signing Day, a whirlwind afternoon for the Maryland football team ultimately resolved itself when one safety reneged on his oral commitment and another committed shortly thereafter.

Georgia safety Jordan Noil, who pledged to the Terrapins in early October, decommitted according to an individual with knowledge of the situation.

Maryland then rushed to offer safety Antwaine Carter, an under-the-radar prospect from Westlake High School who, according to InsideMDSports, “committed right on the spot, no questions asked.”

Noil, a three-star prospect according to 247sports.com who was being recruited by outside linebackers coach Lyndon Johnson, was once the first defensive back to commit to Coach Randy Edsall for his class of 2014.

Carter’s highlights can be viewed on Hudl here.

This leaves Maryland at 14 commitments entering Wednesday, not including offensive linemen Derwin Gray and Larry Mazyck, both of whom have already signed their national letters-of-intent. McNamara offensive lineman Damian Prince, a five-star prospect, plans to decide on National Signing Day, reportedly between Maryland and Florida.

The current oral commitments are:

DE Jesse Aniebonam
WR Juwann Winfree
QB Will Ulmer
S Josh Woods
DE Tyler Burke
CB Daniel Ezeagwui
OT Brendan Moore
OLB Nnamdi Egbuaba
S Antwaine Carter
OT Sean Christie
TE Andrew Gray
DT David Shaw
DE Brett Kulka
LS Nate Adams
