Qwuantrezz Knight commits to Maryland: Terps land another Florida defensive back

DJ Durkin keeps stocking his secondary with players from the Sunshine State.

Florida safety Qwuantrezz Knight has committed to play college football at Maryland, he tweeted on Saturday.

Knight, a 6'0, 189-pound safety in the class of 2016, is unrated on the 247Sports Composite. The Terrapins flipped him from Eastern Michigan, where he had previously committed. Knight's other known offers were from Chattanooga, Tennessee State and Prairie View A&M. Eastern Michigan had also offered quarterback Max Bortenschlager, who joined Knight in committing on Saturday to the Terrapins.

The Terps offered Knight a scholarship earlier in the week, after they'd already secured commitments from Florida defensive backs Elisha Daniels, Elijah Daniels and Antwaine Richardson.

Knight, from Havana, Fla., played in high school at East Gadsen. Though he hasn't been sought-after much as a recruit, Knight has some pretty interesting film as both free safety and a receiver-running back hybrid.

Here's some of that:

And here's more of that:

Maryland doesn't have much depth in the secondary after losing seniors Anthony Nixon, A.J. Hendy and Sean Davis, all multiyear contributors. Knight, Richardson and both Daniels twins should have opportunities to make reasonably quick marks for new position coach Aazaar Adbul-Rahim. So should three-star local cornerback Travon Stott.
