Cornerback Travon Stott signed his National Letter of Intent on Wednesday to play college football at Maryland, making his April verbal commitment official.

Stott, of Olney, Md., hails from Good Counsel, the same school that produced five-star receiver Stefon Diggs in the class of 2012. He is rated three stars on the 247Sports Composite, which pegs him as the 30th-best player in Maryland and the No. 108 cornerback in the class of 2016.
