Three-star cornerback Tarheeb Still announced his commitment to Maryland football Wednesday evening.
Still is ranked as the No. 24 prospect in New Jersey and a top-100 cornerback nationally. He becomes the 12th commitment in the Class of 2020, and moves Maryland up to the No. 28 class nationally and seventh in the Big Ten. Still chose the Terps over West Virginia, Pittsburgh and Temple while also holding offers from the likes of Baylor, Minnesota and Virginia Tech, among others.
He joins offensive tackle Santana Saunders, safety Beau Brade and running backs Ebony Jackson and Peny Boone as the latest recruits to decide to take their talents to College Park. All five prospects have committed within the past week and a half.
The 6’0, 170-pound Still played both wide receiver and corner back at Timber Creek Regional High School, and his athleticism separated him on the field. His combination of speed and footwork allows him to operate efficiently and make plays on both offense and defense. Still was recruited by defensive backs coach Cory Robinson, who prioritized him after leaving Rutgers for Mike Locksley’s new staff at Maryland.
With Brade, Devyn King and Rashad Battle in the fold already, Locksley and his staff seem fairly set at defensive back in this upcoming recruiting class. As the fall season approaches, it will be interesting to see if needs shift and other spots open up for other targets to step in.
