DeMatha football’s head coach said some good things about Maryland

New, 49 comments

This is Monday’s Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

Four-star DeMatha Catholic offensive tackle Marcus Minor committed to Maryland last night, and after he did, his coach Elijah Brooks, was asked about his feelings toward the Terps’ new staff.

“I coached against Coach [Aazaar Abdul-] Rahim when he was coaching at Friendship Collegiate and so we developed a relationship, Coach Beatty recruited our kids at Wisconsin a couple years ago and Coach London, so as a coach there’s definitely a comfort level in knowing that our guys will be in good hands when they move on there,” he said.

These words bode well for Maryland’s future at the powerhouse, which went several years without sending a commit to the Terps before Maryland signed four DeMatha prospects in the class of 2016.

Maryland is still chasing four-star DeMatha running back Anthony McFarland in the class of 2017, and though DeMatha defensive end Chase Young committed to Ohio State, the Terps will surely be after him right until National Signing Day.
