3-star WR Dontay Demus signs with Maryland football

The Terps sign their third receiver of the day.

Dontay Demus, a three-star wide receiver out of Friendship Collegiate in Washington D.C., officially signed with Maryland football on Wednesday.

Demus is ranked as the ninth-best prospect in the District. He also fits right in with the Maryland team with his quickness and agility. Demus stands at 6’4 and weighs 205 pounds, while running a 4.58 40-yard dash (the fastest on his high school team) and owning a 37-inch vertical.

His threat in the redzone is also highly admired due to his framework, which is awesome considering that Maryland has lacked in touchdowns thrown to wide receivers over the recent years. With news coming out on Tuesday that top Maryland wideout D.J Moore is heading to the NFL draft, Maryland looks to have quite the replacement in Demus. Both are close in size and have similar abilities that they bring to the field.

Demus received 15 other offers from schools such as Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest, but only visited one school: Maryland. He verbally committed to the Terps in June and is officially part of the class now.

Demus is one of three wide receivers to sign with the Terps Wednesday, along with Brian Cobbs and Darryl Jones. Maryland will look to make it four at 11 a.m. when three-star receiver Jeshaun Jones announces where he’ll sign. The three hope to find roles this upcoming season, as quarterbacks Tyrrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill return and Maryland won’t bring back much production at wide receiver.
