Kip Jawish, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound all-met middle guard for Georgetown Prep, has signed a football grant-in-aid with the University of Maryland.
Jawish was also a running back for the 8-1 Little, Hoyas last season. He narrowed his choices to Clemson, Boston College and Duke before deciding on Maryland.
His teammate, all-met offensive tackle Kurt Pierce, has signed with the University of Virginia. A 6-3, 235-pound three-year starter, Pierce played both offense and defense for Prep.
"They're both excellent prospects," said Prep coach Jim Fegan. "In a couple of years. I expect they'll be going at each other in a game."
