Maryland football received a commitment from class of 2024 prospect Terek McCant Tuesday, announced in a social media post by McCant.

McCant is listed as a running back by 247Sports but an athlete by Rivals, showcasing his versatility. The 247Sports Composite rates him as a three-star prospect, the nation’s 78th-best running back prospect in his class and the 123rd-best recruit out of the state of Florida. Rivals rates McCant much higher, considering him a four-star prospect and the 40th-best prospect in Florida.

A 5-foot-9, 175-pound junior out of Wharton High School in Tampa, Florida, McCant was also considering Texas A&M, Indiana and South Florida. He will take his first visit to College Park on April 8, which he announced hours before his commitment.

McCant is Maryland’s second commitment in the class of 2024, joining German linebacker and three-star prospect Justin Okoronkwo, who committed back in November.
