Trey Rucker became the ninth member of Maryland football’s 2019 recruiting class on Sunday. The safety from Flint Hill School in Virginia might have some company from a friend soon, too.
Running back Jordan Houston is announcing his commitment today, and Maryland’s more than just a contender for his services. The Terps are the experts’ favorite to land him, with Virginia Tech leading the pack of other contenders.
Thank you to every school that has recruited me. These are my top 5 schools in no specific order. I will be committing soon!!! God is Great! pic.twitter.com/dPeo7GZVkz— Jordan Houston (@usmigo) July 20, 2018
Rucker also cited relationships with several fellow DMV prospects who are currently playing for or committed to Maryland as major factors in his decision.
Now that he is committed to the Terps, Rucker will shift his focus to getting his current teammate and Maryland 2019 running back target Jordan Houston onboard.
“[Houston and I] talk about playing together sometimes but we just told each other that we gotta choose whatever school is the best fit,” Rucker said.
