Less than 24 hours after a much-needed win over Michigan State, Maryland football got some more good news.
Three-star Georgia athlete Jalen Browder announced his commitment to the program Sunday on Twitter.

Browder is the No. 51 athlete in the class of 2017 and the No. 69 recruit in Georgia. He’s the third Georgia recruit to join Maryland’s class, along with wide receivers Carlos Carriere and Sean Nelson.
His commitment boost Maryland’s class to the No. 13 ranking in the nation, trailing only Ohio State and Michigan in the Big Ten. He’s the 19th recruit to join Maryland’s 2017 recruiting class. Virginia athlete Dazz Newsome was the 18th addition to the class, committing only last week. Like Newsome, Browder is also classified as an “athlete,” though his 6’3, 195-pound frame suggests he’ll be a receiver or a defensive back.
Browder also had offers from Louisville, Ole Miss, South Caroline, Mississippi State and Missouri, among other schools.
