Majette Commits To Maryland Terrapins


Less than 48 hours after losing cornerback Kareem Ali to Temple via decommitment, the Maryland Terrapins filled in the blank spot when ATH Mike Majette announced his commitment. Majette, who’s recent visit to the university apparently sealed the deal, showing how well this staff is presenting the school to prospective recruits.

Majette, who was a quarterback at his high school in Woodbridge, Virginia, is likely going to be converted to cornerback when he arrives on campus. Majette, who is  5′,11″and 195 lbs, has great size for a corner assuming he is capable of making the transition. Majette had interest from Boston College, Indiana, and James Madison among other schools.

The best part about Majette is that analysts project Majette as being capable of playing up to five different positions at the next level, and a lot of analysts are high on his potential. Edsall likes to change player’s positions often, so adding a player like Majette will be a boon for Maryland strategically. Majette also has some good speed, with a 40-yard time clocking in at 4.5.

If you’re interested in some highlights from Majette, Hudl.com has you covered:

It’s pretty clear from the video Majette has some fantastic footwork and great speed for a potential corner. Majette is a football player first and foremost, and having those on your roster is never a bad thing. Should his commitment stick, he’ll factor in as a solid replacement alongside William Likely when he arrives on campus. Likely will be a junior, and Jeremiah Johnson will have already been out the door, leaving a void in the secondary for the Terrapins.

Our own Ahmed Ghafir will be talking with Majette in the coming day, so check back later for more.
