Terps Pick Up 16th Football Commit in 2012 Class

Randy Edsall’s staff at Maryland has picked up their 16th commitment of the 2012 class, as Maret School (Washington, DC) defensive back Sean Davis pledged to the Terrapins Tuesday, according to WaPo.

Davis, who stands at 6’1″ and weighs 175 pounds, plays safety, running back, and wide receiver at the small private school in DC, but probably will play cornerback as a Terp. He is rated a three prospect by Rivals, and the fourth best player in the District.

As a junior, he had 45 rushes for 492 yards and six touchdowns, and also caught 24 passes for 381 yards and two touchdowns. He chose Maryland over offers from Boston College, Connecticut and Marshall.

Let’s look at the tape, after the jump.

This is commonly referred to as “small school athlete outruns undersized white dudes”. There’s honestly not much you can get out of this video because he’s obviously not playing against very high level competition.

What you can see is a very talented athlete who is leaps and bounds ahead of everyone else on the field. He looks real fast, but it’s hard to tell how much of that is him and how much of that is who he’s playing against. He has good open field running ability, and seems like a very good pickup.

This is an example of a very good local talent picking the Terps. With how little of the time that has happened recently, savor that, Terps fans.

Congrats to Sean for becoming a member of Terp Nation.
