Avalon’s Jacquille Veii decommits from Maryland

Avalon wide receiver Jacquille Veii, who committed to Maryland back in July, announced on his Facebook page Monday night that he is de-committing from the Terrapins.

Veii, who was not immediately available for comment Tuesday, wrote on his page:

“During Gods plan thought life , things that cant be explained often happen, and theres reasons for all of these things, but how you deal with them is how you learn and build on them...with that said i’m de-committed from the university of maryland and re opening my recruitment.”

The 5-10, 175-pound senior rushed for 144 yards and two touchdowns in a 60-18 win over Saint James on Saturday, which was the final regular season game for Avalon (6-4).

In an interview two weeks ago, Avalon Coach Tad Shields acknowledged that Veii was still orally committed to Maryland, but also said, “He’s got some other offers, too.”

“He’s a 4.3-40 guy. That’s what Maryland timed him at anyway,” said Shields. “He works hard. Trains hard. He’s made himself the player that he is. It’s just not all natural gift.”
