About two weeks after committing to the Terps, Akron (Oh.) athlete DeShawn Dowdy has re-opened his commitment, per IMS. Dowdy says he plans on staying in-state.
It’s not a huge loss for Maryland, and the Terps are now back down to an 18-player class. Dowdy is rated as a three-star outside linebacker by Scout, an unrated wide receiver by Rivals, and an unrated tight end by 247sports.
Maryland was apparently in his final two with Cincinnati, so the smart money is on the Bearcats picking him up.
