Former Maryland cornerback Isaac Goins will reportedly sign as an undrafted free agent with the Miami Dolphins, as first tweeted by Maryland player Quinton Jefferson and later confirmed by Randy Edsall.

A three-star prospect out of Contra Costa College, Goins played a key role in two seasons with the Terrapins. In 2012, he played in nine games with two starts, recording 11 tackles with three passes broken up. After season-ending injuries to starting cornerbacks Dexter McDougle and Jeremiah Johnson, Goins was thrust into a starting role in 2013 alongside true freshman Will Likely, finishing the season with 60 tackles, one sack, two interceptions (one against Old Dominion, one against Clemson) and four passes broken up. He's a strong corner in coverage who has solid tackling ability and great awareness for the ball.

Goins isn't the first recent Maryland corner to land with the Dolphins. Nolan Carroll was a fifth-round pick of Miami's in 2010, playing with the Dolphins for four years until signing with the Eagles this spring. Goins will attempt to join a Miami roster that already has two Terps on defense -- defensive tackles A.J. Francis and Randy Starks.
