Maryland football has signed three-star linebacker Andrew “Bam” Booker.
The linebacker was originally in the Class of 2021 and was the No. 77 linebacker in the nation and No. 29 player out of Ohio. Bam will join his brother, sophomore defensive lineman Anthony “Tank” Booker, at the University of Maryland and made things official when he signed his letter of intent on Wednesday.
Booker committed to the program in July 2020 but took a year off.

I spent a year away from the sport I love. I’m so pumped that it’s time to return.
Only two things matter now: Excelling in school and dominating my opponent on the football field! #LOCKedIN22

Booker collected a number of accolades while in high school such as Sports Illustrated All-American Candidate, First Team All-Ohio and First Team All-Cincinnati, among others.
