It’s not only Land’s special day, apparently. It’s his mom’s, too. And, of course, Maryland’s special day as well.
Land, a 5-foot-8 cornerback from Virginia Beach, Va., is the No. 25 player at his position according to 247Sports in the entire country. In the state of Virginia, Land is the No. 8 overall player. He is also the No. 278 overall player in the country.
Maryland’s 2019 class now consists of five members and is ranked as the No. 38 class in the country and No. 9 in the Big Ten. Land has 11 scholarship offers according to 247Sports, including Georgia, LSU, Virginia Tech, Auburn and Florida, to name a few.
