Raymond Boone commits to Maryland football: Terps land 3-star safety

He becomes Maryland’s second in-state commit in two days.

Maryland football continued its local dominance on Friday night, landing its second commit in as many days, this time from three-star safety Raymond Boone.

He’s a 5’11, 199-pound safety from Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, Maryland. Boone is the 10th commit in Maryland’s Class of 2018, which is now rated as the No. 25 class in the country, per the 247Sports team rankings.

Boone is one of the best pure athletes in the DMV, and has raw talent with extremely high upside on the field. He’s listed as the No. 15 prospect in Maryland and the No. 53 athlete in the country.

Boone is the first defensive back to commit to Maryland in this cycle after the Terps brought in five last year. He’s also a high school teammate of 2017 signee, three-star defensive end Lawtez Rogers.

He and four-star offensive tackle Jaelyn Duncan have committed in the last two days, putting the Terps in the top 25 for the second straight recruiting cycle. There’s a long way until Signing Day, but Maryland is picking up steam on what could be another loaded, albeit smaller, class.
