After seeing eight players leave the program for various reasons since season’s end, Maryland on Wednesday announced the addition of one player: Isaac Goins, a defensive back from Contra Costa College in San Pablo, Calif., has signed a national letter of intent to play for the Terrapins in 2012.
Goins, who has two years of eligibility remaining, will enroll at Maryland in January.
This past season, the 6-foot, 190-pound Goins was a first-team All-Bay Valley Conference selection after intercepting six passes. He was also nominated for all-region honors. In addition, Goins was named to the academic all-Conference team.
“I am happy that Isaac will be joining us,” Maryland Coach Randy Edsall said in a statement. “He possesses excellent coverage skills and plays the ball very well in the air. He is also a good tackler. Isaac is a quality young man who is solid in the classroom, as well as on and off the field.”
Goins, a native of Hercules, Calif., played high school football at El Cerrito High, where he was a first-team All-East Bay choice at wide receiver as a senior in 2009. He was also a first-team all-league selection that season at defensive back and receiver.
