With National Signing Day less than a week away, coach Randy Edsall and his staff are still happy to snag more commitments. According to InsideMDSports, Maryland has received a commitment from 2014 Westlake safety Antwaine Carter.
Carter, who starred at the Waldorf-based high school, is rated as a two-star recruit on Rivals and isn’t rated on 24/7 Sports. He is a very under-the-radar prospect and doesn’t seem to have much college interest before securing a spot with the Terrapins.
Carter is the second safety heading to Maryland in the 2014 recruiting class. The Terps did have three commitments at that position, but Georgia native Jordan Noil decommited from Maryland, according to Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post. Per 24/7Sports, Noil is a three-star recruit who had offers from smaller schools like Appalachian State, Buffalo, and Charlotte.
It sounded like Noil decommited first then the Terps rushed to offer Carter on Saturday morning.
In terms of Carter, the film tells a pretty decent story. The Westlake star played cornerback and safety at the high school level. He is solid in pass coverage and has the ability to stay at home in the secondary when he has to. Carter is also a very sound tackler and seems to have good instincts.
Being that Carter is a two-star recruit, means that he has some decent potential. The McDonogh School’s Josh Woods looks to be the better prospect of the two, but depth at any position is always a good thing.
