Maryland football picked up another local prospect on the recruiting trail Friday, as linebacker Chance Campbell announced his commitment to the Terps.

Campbell is a 6’2, 222-pound inside linebacker from Calvert Hall College High School in Towson, Maryland. He’s a three-star prospect according to Rivals and Scout, but isn’t rated on ESPN or 247Sports. Campbell also plays lacrosse for the Cardinals, who won the MIAA state title Thursday night, so he hasn’t been evaluated as frequently as full-time football prospects.
He had 17 offers in total and 10 from Power 5 programs, but elected to stay in-state. Campbell becomes the seventh commit in Maryland’s 2018 class, four of which are on the defensive side of the ball. The Terps have already landed outside linebackers Durrell Nchami and Nihym Anderson this cycle, so Campbell will join a competitive group at that position.
With Jermaine Carter Jr. entering his final season, Maryland doesn’t have plenty of known quantities at linebacker. Several young players can make an impact in 2017, but Campbell and the other 2018 commits have a potential path to contribute right away.
