3-star tight end Leron Husbands signs with Maryland football

The Terps add a local tight end to the fold.

Leron Husbands, a tight end out of Washington D.C., put his future with Maryland in ink on Wednesday, finalizing a commitment that he made on Feb. 27.

The tight end chose Maryland over two other Power Five schools in Indiana and Boston College, joining the Terps as the No. 40 tight end and No. 7 player out of the District. The 6-foot-3, 207-pound player is on the lighter side in the team’s future position class, joining soon-to-be senior Chigoziem Okonkwo, who checks in at 244 lbs.

Husbands’ size has worked in all aspects of his game thus far. Husbands has also lined up as a wide receiver in his time at high school, proving to be a dual-threat on the offensive end.

Due to COVID-19 protocols in the Maryland, Washington, D.C., area, Husbands’ final season at Charles Herbert Flowers was cancelled.

Husbands comes to College Park in one of the highest recruiting classes in the nation, and will have a chance to make an instant impact. He joins three-star tight end commits Weston Wolff and CJ Dippre in filling up a bare position group.
