Maryland football four-star signees Rico Walker and Dylan Gooden participated in the Under Armour All-America Game on Tuesday. The Under Armour All-America game allows the nation's top college football recruits to go head-to-head against each other before beginning their collegiate careers.
Walker is one of the Terps’ biggest names in the 2023 recruiting class. Walker is ranked as the No. 214 player in America, the No. 9 player in North Carolina and the 24th-best edge rusher in the nation, according to the 247Sports Composite.
The monster athlete has the ability to play on both sides of the ball, either as an edge rusher or a tight end. However, Maryland football head coach Mike Locksley has stated that he will start on the offensive side of the ball for Maryland.
Alongside Walker is edge rusher Dylan Gooden. Gooden is a Maryland native and is ranked as the 34th-best edge rusher in the country and the sixth-best overall player out of Maryland, according to the 247Sports Composite.
Locksley made it a priority to go after edge rushers in the 2023 recruiting class and he did just that by landing Gooden and Walker.
