Maryland football recruiting: 3-star Tampa wide receiver Jahrvis Davenport commits to Terps

Maryland adds another player from the Sunshine State.


The unstoppable momentum of Maryland's recent recruiting influx continues, as the Terps have added their 11th commitment in the past 30 days. Three-star Tampa (Fla.) Robinson High School wide receiver Jahrvis Davenport committed to Maryland Friday, as reported by IMS.

Davenport received an offer from Maryland in mid-May, and was rumored to be a Terrapin lean since that time. Keenan McCardell and Mike Locksley have made Tampa an area of priority importance, and Davenport is the first player they've been able to land from the region. He joins three-star running back Deltron Sands as the Terps' two commits from Florida in the Class of 2015.

Davenport is rated as a three-star prospect by the 247sports composite, ranking as the 154th-best wide receiver in the nation and the 190th-best player in the state of Florida. He's listed at 5'10" and 180 pounds, and could be a potential option to fill in at the slot position after Stefon Diggs departs for the NFL (although Levern Jacobs is the most likely in-house candidate for that spot).

The prospect also held offers from Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Wake Forest, South Florida, Georgia Tech, Temple, FIU, Florida Atlantic, Marshall and Connecticut, among others. Maryland now moves up to 29th in the 247sports composite rankings.
