Maryland football earned commitments from cornerback Lakhi Roland and linebacker Darius Grimes this past week, each announced on social media. Roland announced his decision on Tuesday, and Grimes did so on Wednesday,

Roland is the third commit in the Terps’ 2024 recruiting class, joining three-star running back Terek McCant and linebacker Justin Okoronkwo. The Ellenwood, Georgia native fielded offers from Boston College, UConn and Colorado, among others.

Grimes, a late addition to the 2023 class, announced his plans to stay home and play for the Terps Wednesday afternoon. The Upper Marlboro native is a two-time Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association All-State selection and was named the 2A Defensive Player of the Year this past season.
