Maryland football further solidified its 2022 class Wednesday with three-star wide receiver Kobe Prentice announcing his pledge to the program.
Prentice had a strong first half of the year in recruiting, earning offers from Arizona State, Kansas State, Mississippi State and more before locking in with the Terps.
At 5-foot-10, 171 pounds, Prentice has the build to thrive as a slot receiver, which also requires a unique skill set. He is able to get open across the middle or to the outside and once he gets the ball in space, very few players on defense will be able to catch him and bring him down.
Prentice is a multi-sport athlete at Calera High School in Calera, Alabama, where he has posted some explosive numbers in track. As a junior in 2021, Prentice set personal records in the 60m (7.04), 100m (10.81), 200m (21.84) and 400m (52.51), according to MileSplit.
Prentice is the latest addition at wide receiver, with the staff holding the commitment of three-star New Jersey receiver Amari Clark and hoping to strike gold when converting three-star Florida athlete Perry Fisher from quarterback to receiver.
Maryland football now has 12 commitments in the Class of 2022, sitting at No. 33 in the nation and No. 8 in the Big Ten, according to the 247 Sports Composite rankings.
