Three-star tight end Weston Wolff officially committed to Maryland football, he announced Saturday.
The Florida native becomes the first non-DMV prospect to join the 2021 recruiting class, but continues the Terps’ pipeline of sunshine state talent.
Wolff is a consensus three-star recruit, ranking as the No. 49 tight end in the country and No. 146 player out of Florida, according to the 247Sports Composite. He did, however, hold a whopping 37 offers — proving to be a hot commodity around the country.
In a top-five released one week before his commitment, Wolff pitted the Terps against Miami, Northwestern, UCF and West Virginia.
Maryland extended an offer to Wolff back in January and was seemingly able to build a relationship quickly. He was able to venture to College Park for a visit in early March, just before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down in-person contact between coaches and players.
Listed at 6’4, 210 pounds, Wolff presents a long frame as a receiving target and has a proven ability to make tough catches. In 2019, he tallied 42 catches for 611 yards and four touchdowns. As a sophomore, he led all 2021 receivers in Florida with 70 catches for 804 yards and three touchdowns.
A product of Venice High School in Venice, Florida, Wolff has been a part of back-to-back 7A Region 3 championship teams.
The tight end position has been one that Maryland has been looked to solidify after the graduation of Tyler Mabry and transfer of Tyler Devera. Rising junior Chigoziem Okonkwo is poised to absorb a prominent role in the offense the season with senior Zack Roski and redshirt freshman Malik Jackson rounding out the position.
No tight ends were added in the 2020 cycle, but Leron Husbands and Joseph Bearns are also already on board in 2021 at the position.
With Wolff in the fold, Maryland now has 12 commitments in the 2021 cycles, ranking at No. 14 in the country and No. 6 in the Big Ten.
