Three-star safety Shane Mosley — brother of current Terps safety Jordan Mosley — signed his National Letter of Intent Wednesday morning, officially joining Maryland football’s 2020 class.
Mosley committed just one day after receiving an offer from the Terps in June, excited to join his brother Jordan, who recorded 48 total tackles, a sack and an interception in his sophomore season in 2019.
“It was a cool feeling,” he told Testudo Times on Dec. 15. “Hopefully, one day, we get a chance to play together.”
The Haverford, Pennsylvania, native is recovering from an Oct. 16 knee surgery on his left patella tendon after an injury sustained during the fifth game of his senior season at Haverford High School. The recovery time is estimated at six-to-eight months.
Mosley was the No. 20 recruit in the state and No. 129 cornerback recruit in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite.
He was recruited primarily by Maryland defensive coordinator Jon Hoke and chose the Terps over 12 other schools, including Navy, Army and Albany, among others. Shane has also made the decision to enroll starting in June to get some classes out of the way before practice for the 2020 season begins.
Mosley said the mantra of the 2020 class is to “change the program,” is the mantra of the 2020 class.
“It’s our job to set a standard for the program, be leaders on the field and hopefully get a couple of Big Ten championships along the way,” he said.
He is one of three safeties, including Glen Miller and Beau Brade, incoming for the Terps, and he’ll have some competition on the field with his brother Jordan and rising sophomore Nick Cross.
“At the end of the day, they’re my teammates, but I’m here to play,” he said. “It’s definitely going to be good, healthy competition.”
