Maryland football secured a verbal commitment from three-star cornerback Devyn King on Tuesday night.
The 5’11, 175-pound defensive back out of Gardena, California, is the No. 93 prospect in his state and No. 94 cornerback in the country, per the 247Sports Composite rankings. King was a relatively new interest for head coach Mike Locksley and his staff, as he received an offer on Feb. 1 and committed just over two months later. King was one of just two players out of California to receive an offer from Maryland.
King will bring all kinds of athleticism to College Park when he arrives in 2020. The Junipero Serra High School product recently clocked a 4.6 40-yard dash at The Opening Regional in Los Angeles in early February. Along with his speed, King has played wide receiver in high school and has the ability to make plays on balls thrown his way.
With the commitment of King, Maryland’s Class of 2020 now has three players on board and has moved up the rankings from 64th to 53rd nationally and from 12th to 11th in the Big Ten. Along with King, flocks of high school players have been taking visits to College Park as of late, and the hype around Locksley and the program is starting to snowball.
