Maryland is still working on putting together the recruiting class for 2022, but Mike Locksley and company did not hesitate on one prospect for the class of 2023.
The prospect is Robert “Champ Long, a quarterback. The Terrapins were among the first schools to offer Long and finally had him on campus this week now that the recruiting dead period has been lifted.
After his visit, it did not take long to have a decision. Long announced his commitment Saturday, picking the Terps over other early offers from UMass, Temple, and Old Dominion.
Gods Timing! Proud To Announce That I Am 110% Committed To The University of Maryland! ️ @LamarMcKnight_ @CoachDanEnos @CoachLocks @UMD_CoachBaker @coachnazoliver @CoachOFlaherty @CoachRichHansen @Bigchamp40 pic.twitter.com/5dy1foe0s1
— Robert J. Long Jr. (Champ) 6’0” 205lbs (@champlong7) June 19, 2021
Long is listed at 6-feet and 200 lbs. He is currently not rated by the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, but that is likely to change as he progresses throughout high school. He is now the first commitment for Maryland in the class of 2023.
Maryland also added the 10th commit to the 2022 class during the week as Locksley continues to try and put in work on the recruiting trail.
