Three-star wide receiver Corey Dyches of Potomac High School has committed to Maryland football.
Dyches is the No. 28 player in the state of Maryland and the nation’s No. 128 receiver, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. He was on campus for a visit last month and really seemed to take a shine to the hometown school. He teased a commitment was coming earlier in April, and also made it clear he wasn’t going to push the process out longer than it needed to be.

Other schools that offered Dyches include Boston College, North Carolina and UMass, where he was recruited by former Maryland defensive backs coach Aazaar Abdul-Rahim. He also received looks from Alabama, Ohio State and Penn State, but had not fielded an offer from those programs.
At 6’1, 190 pounds, Dyches has been able to use his size to dominate at the high school level. He runs great routes and is able to find soft spots in zones, while also having the keen sense of tracking the ball in the air and winning battles in the air against defensive backs. His all-around game could open the door for early playing time in College Park if it translates well.
With the commitment of Dyches on top of offensive lineman Jordan White, Maryland’s class of 2020 ranking has moved up to 58th nationally and 12th in the Big Ten. Looking ahead, the Red-White spring game on April 27 will host a number of prospects, and could serve as the next chance for Maryland to pick up more commitments.
