Maryland picked up their 17th recruit of the 2015 class Tuesday, as three-star St. Stephen's & St. Agnes (Va.) linebacker Isaiah Davis pledged to the Terps, Ryan Snyder is reporting. Davis is the younger brother of starting Terrapin safety Sean Davis, and is Maryland's first success at a family-tied recruit in 2015, after losing Andre Monroe's brother Ayron to Penn State and Mike Locksley's son Kai to Florida State.
Davis chose Maryland over offers from Boston College, Virginia Tech and NC State, and was widely expected to pick the Wolfpack. He visited Maryland two weeks ago, and took a surprise visit to NC State this past week after being expected to visit Virginia Tech. The 6'1", 210-pound prospect is considered the 120th-best athlete in the nation and the 46th-best player in the state of Virginia by the 247sports composite.
Brett Zanotto and Gus Little join him as the three linebackers from the class of 2015, and adding Davis gives the Terps depth at the outside position. Davis's pledge likely sees the Terps close up shop at the linebacker position in this class.
Here are his highlights. Enjoy:
