Maryland football has landed another commit in its 2021 class, as three-star linebacker Andrew “Bam” Booker announced his commitment to the Terps late Wednesday night.
Booker, of Winton Woods High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, is the younger brother of redshirt freshman defensive lineman Anthony “Tank” Booker and is the 18th commitment in Maryland’s 2021 class. He’s also the 10th defensive player in Maryland’s next incoming class, adding to a strong crop set to join the team in 2021.
At 6’3, 220 pounds, he’s ranked as the No. 40 outside linebacker in the country, as well as the 27th best player in the state of Ohio.
The Terps currently have the No. 18 class in the nation and rank No. 5 in the Big Ten. Six of the top-seven commitments have come on the defensive side of the ball, with Booker as the seventh-highest rated commit.
