Maryland football has added a fourth defensive back to its 2017 recruiting class, as junior college corner Alex Woods announced his commitment to the Terps Sunday on Twitter.

Woods is the No. 12 junior college corner and the No. 4 junior college recruit in North Carolina, according to the 247Sports Composite. He hosted Pete Lembo, Maryland’s associate head coach and special teams coordinator, for an in-home visit last week. Clearly, things went well. Woods chose the Terps over offers from N.C. State and New Mexico State.

Woods spent last season at Lackawanna Community College in Pennsylvania, but he’s originally from North Carolina. He verbally committed to West Virginia in June, but as Maryland fans know well by now, recruits often change their minds. Woods decommitted from West Virginia last month, and the Terps appeared to lead the charge in his recruitment ever since.

Woods joins Deon Long, Fofie Bazzie and Dazz Newsome as defensive back recruits in Maryland’s class, giving the Terps some options at a position where they need some.
