Maryland football’s top unsigned recruiting target
4-star T Rasheed Walker, North Point High School, Waldorf, Md.
Maryland signed one 4-star tackle last year. If it gets Rasheed Walker, it’d have two this time around. However, Walker appears to be leaning toward Ohio State or Penn State.
4-star CB Ken Montgomery, Mays High School Atlanta
Ken Montgomery told Land of 10’s Tyler Donohue he’s down to Louisville, Maryland and Nebraska. He also told Donohue he’ll be visiting Nebraska this weekend.
4-star CB Noah Boykin, Woodson, Washington D.C.
Noah Boykin was verbally committed to Maryland, but now that he has reopened his recruitment, Boykin seems unlikely to end up in College Park.
