Class of 2024 cornerback Larry Tarver Jr. announced his commitment to Maryland football Tuesday. He was originally committed to Florida International.
The Miami Gardens, Florida native is rated as a three-star prospect by the 247Sports Composite. At 5-foot-11, 165 pounds, he was an all-county second team selection this past season with TRU Prep Academy.
Additionally, Tarver Jr. was named to the all-county team for track. He ran 10.84 seconds in the 100-meter and 21.86 seconds in the 200-meter this spring.
After his verbal commitment to FIU in April, he received offers from Maryland, Texas A&M and Louisville, among others. He took an official visit to College Park from June 23-25.
Tarver Jr. became the 12th commit in Maryland’s 2024 class, and the second cornerback (Lakhi Roland).
