Georgia safety Jordan Noil commits to Maryland


The Maryland football team received its 13th oral commitment for the class of 2014 this weekend, when Georgia safety Jordan Noil offered his pledge.

A three-star prospect according to, Noil had exclusively mid-major and Football Championship Subdivision offers — the Web site lists Buffalo, Charlotte, Georgia State, Marshall and Appalachian State, among others, as his suitors — before the Terrapins came calling.

Maryland plans to use Noil, officially listed as an “athlete” on many recruiting Web sites, at safety. He is the first defensive back to commit for Coach Randy Edsall’s upcoming recruiting class, and just the fourth defensive player overall. The true prized defensive back remains Friendship Collegiate’s Jalen Tabor, ranked as Washington D.C.’s No. 1 player and among the top 10 cornerbacks nationally.

InsideMDSports first reported Noil’s commitment, citing his coach at Norcross (Ga.) High School, Keith Maloof.

Noil’s highlights are available here. He attended Maryland’s 37-0 rout over West Virginia on Sept. 21 in Baltimore on an official visit.

More to come.
