Treshaun Ward commits to Maryland football: Terps land 3-star running back

New, 25 comments

Maryland’s Florida pipeline is still very much all the way open.

Three-star running back Treshaun Ward announced his commitment to Maryland football Thursday evening on Twitter, becoming the first prospect to join the Terps’ Class of 2019 since late July.

Ward is the first recruit to commit to Maryland since everything that’s gone on in the last month. Previously, three-star offensive tackle Parker Moorer reopened his recruitment and former three-star linebacker and incoming freshman linebacker Nihym Anderson left the program, though there’s no stated reason for his departure.

The 5’9, 182-pound back is the No. 84 running back in the Class of 2019 and the No. 173 overall prospect in Florida, per the 247Sports Composite rankings. Ward took an unofficial visit to College Park in late July.

Ward’s speed and agility made him a threat in high school. He’ll need to bolster those skills and add to his arsenal in college, but he’s still a solid pickup for the Terps.

On the recruiting front, Ward continues a stream of commits from Florida that started flowing almost immediately after DJ Durkin’s arrival in late 2016. In this class alone, he’s the second commit from the Tampa area, joining high three-star receiver Ahmarean Brown. With Durkin still on administrative leave and his future with the program uncertain, it’s a positive to see that the Florida pipeline is still open.

Ward is the second running back commit in Maryland’s Class of 2019; three-star Jordan Houston announced his commitment in July.

With the addition of Ward, the Terps’ class moves up to No. 66 in the country, per the 247Sports team rankings. Ward also held offers from Minnesota, Indiana, Kentucky and Cincinnati, among others.
