Local four-star defensive end Demeioun Robinson announced his commitment to Maryland football Friday.
Robinson is listed as the No. 48 player in the nation, No. 2 weak-side end and No. 3 player in Maryland, according to the 247Sports Composite.
The Quince Orchard talent has been teasing his love for the Terps for a few weeks on social media — particularly after visiting College Park in late January before the dead period.

At 6’3, 220 pounds, Robinson presents a perfectly-sized frame as an edge rusher. Whether he rushes from a standing position or with his hand in the dirt, he seems to just blow past tackles with ease.
Robinson held offers from all over the country, including the likes of Alabama, Clemson, Georgia and Ohio State. He was also selected and has committed to playing in the 2021 All-American Bowl.
In his junior season, Robinson accounted for 85 tackles (61 solo), 14 sacks, three caused fumbles and one interception, according to MaxPreps. He also scored 2 touchdowns and blocked multiple punts using that speed off of the edge.
Robinson is easily the largest coup of head coach Mike Locksley’s class of 2021 so far — which now includes ten players.
Each player committed in the 2021 class is from the DMV area, and a number of pledges hail from powerful local programs such as St. John’s, St. Frances and now Quince Orchard.
Maryland ranks No. 9 in the nation, according the the 247Sports Composite, and sits at third in the Big Ten. Ohio State (No. 1) and Wisconsin (No. 6) are ahead of the Terps so far in the 2021 cycle.
