Three-star defensive back Judah Jenkins (Olney, Md.) committed to Maryland football on Wednesday. He signed with the Terps shortly after, making him the third cornerback signee in head coach Mike Locksley’s 2024 recruiting class.

Jenkins waited to announce his commitment until Wednesday’s early National Signing Day. He was initially committed to Indiana, but backed off his pledge on Dec. 3 following the dismissal of head coach Tom Allen.

Per the 247Sports Composite, Jenkins is the No. 83 cornerback in his class and the 30th-best recruit from Maryland.

Listed at 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, he helped Good Counsel achieve a 10-1 record and win the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship. He finished his high school career as a three-time All-WCAC selection.

Jenkins’ announcement came just minutes after former Maryland cornerback commit Larry Tarver Jr. decided to sign with Nebraska instead.
