Three-star wide receiver Mekhai White committed Tuesday evening to Maryland football.
White is the Terps’ 18th overall commit in the class of 2024 and second wide receiver, joining fellow three-star Jahmari Powell-Wonson, who committed to Maryland in May.
According to the 247Sports composite rankings, White is the No. 38 ranked athlete in his class and the seventh-best overall recruit from Virginia. He is also ranked as the No. 463 overall prospect in the country with a composite rating of 0.8892. While attending King George High School during the 2022 season, White recorded 37 receptions for 1,039 yards and 18 touchdowns.
The 6-foot-3, 185-pound wide receiver cut his list down to eight schools in May, which included LSU, Michigan, Penn State and Virginia Tech, along with Maryland.
Maryland was one of the first schools to extend an offer to White in September of 2021, and he took an official visit to College Park on June 9 of this year.
