Jordan Noil commits to Maryland

247sports

Maryland receives their 12th commitment of the 2014 class.

Fresh off the heels of a commitment from four-star wide receiver Juwann Winfree, Maryland has received another pledge for their 2014 class -- Norcross (Ga.) High School safety Jordan Noil, via IMS.

Noil is listed at 6'3" and 175 pounds, and is rated a two-star prospect by the 247sports composite. He is also rated as the 139th-best safety in the country and the 140th-best player in the state of Georgia.

Maryland was one of two major offers with Noil, along with Kansas State. Other big schools took notice, however, as he received interest from Arizona, Arkansas, Auburn and Tennessee, among others.

You may remember Norcross as the former home of former Terps Max Garcia and D.J. Adams, and it appears Randy Edsall is attempting to re-open a Georgia pipeline that proved beneficial for Maryland in years past.

A quick look at our handy-dandy scholarship chart shows that Maryland is pretty set at safety, with both Sean Davis and Anthony Nixon scheduled to be eligible through the 2015 season, but Noil will likely come into play in 2016 or later, along with current freshmen Milan Collins and Elvis Dennah.

Noil is Maryland's first commitment from Georgia in the 2014 class, and second from the South, joining Texas offensive lineman Brendan Moore. Last season, Maryland nabbed offensive lineman Jajuan Dulaney and linebacker Jalen Brooks from the Peach State.
