Maryland football has secured a commitment from three-star Class of 2022 quarterback Jayden Sauray, he announced Monday.
A product of nearby Dr. Henry Wise High School, Sauray sits at 0.8676 on the 247 Sports Composite, coming in as the No. 12 dual-threat quarterback, No. 17 prospect in Maryland and No. 620 prospect nationally for his class.
Sauray chose the Terps over offers from Boston College, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.
As a sophomore during the 2019 season, Sauray completed 65% of his passes for 1,988 passing yards, 402 rushing yards, 41 total touchdowns and just five interceptions as he led the Pumas to the Maryland Class 4A state championship.
Standing at 6-foot, 205 pounds, Sauray brings key athleticism to the quarterback position. As soon as he catches a snap, Sauray can be a threat with his legs whether it be scrambling or a designed keep, but can also unleash deep throws.
Head coach Mike Locksley and offensive coordinator Dan Enos locked in commitments from three star McDonogh quarterback Preston Howard and three-star Cherokee (Ga.) quarterback AJ Swann earlier in 2021 to shore up the future at quarterback, though the former is now listed as an athlete.
With Taulia Tagovailoa becoming an upperclassman and incoming graduate transfer Reece Udinski marking the only other scholarship quarterback, it made sense for the Terps to stock the shelves at quarterback in the 2022 class.
The Terps now have nine committed players in the Class of 2022, including a base of three players from Maryland, which currently ranks as the No. 22 class in the country and No. 5 in the Big Ten.
