Maryland football has received another National Letter of Intent, this one from Georgia recruit Jalen Browder.

Browder verbally committed to the Terps back in October following their win over Michigan State. He was one of five receiver recruits to join Maryland’s class.
Though he’s technically classified as an “athlete” on recruiting websites, he seems to fit in for Maryland as a wide receiver. His highlight tape only features him on offense, playing slot and outside receiver.
Of course, in offensive coordinator Walt Bell’s offense, wide receivers are never just wide receivers. They line up in the backfield, or they go in motion to take handoffs and pitches. At 6’3, 180, he’ll probably need to put on a few pounds. But with Maryland graduating three of its top four highest-producing wide receivers from last season (though leading pass-catcher D.J. Moore will return), Browder could see some opportunities early.
Browder is the No. 73 recruit in Georgia and the No. 55 athlete in the Class of 2017, according to the 247Sports Composite.
Fist pump for Jalen Browder from @TerrapinHoops legend @GARYWILLIAMS02! #Shell17 https://t.co/BlGfsWbBNm— Maryland Football (@TerpsFootball) February 1, 2017
