As we get closer to football season, the Terps 2019 class has become more and more concerning with a lack of both depth and talent. After back to back top 30 classes from Durkin and co., this class has been far from the high standard that the staff has set for themselves. The Terps are 13th out of 14 in Big Ten class rankings, with only Rutgers behind them, and 68th in the nation with not one player above 3 stars.
This past weekend the situation improved with two Flint Hill, Virginia guys. The first is Trey Rucker, a 3-star safety the 6’0, 190-pound safety is the No. 28 safety prospect in Virginia and the No. 89 overall player in the state. Rucker is the 4th DB to join the Terps this cycle.

The 2nd of the three commits of the weekend is a preferred walk-on Todd Simmons is an unrated prospect by all major recruiting services, but at 6’2, 190 pounds, has the frame and size to evolve into a capable receiver in College Park. He currently plays at The Avalon School in Gaithersburg, MD under head coach Tyree Spinner. Simmons played both receiver and cornerback in high school and even filled in at quarterback when his team needed, we can assume this is the last receiver of the 2019 class after adding 9 the past two classes and 2 this cycle.

The last of this past weekend is Jordan Houston, who will be joining Flint Hill teammate Trey Rucker. Houston coming into College Park as the #8 all propose back in the country and the 18th overall prospect in Virginia. Rucker received offers from Virginia Tech, Michigan, Michigan State and North Carolina. The 5’9 180 pound back has great speed and cuts well. Houston was the only Junior to be named first-team All-Met by the Washington Post. The Terps left the weekend with a jump of 10 spots in the 24/7 composite rankings to the 58th best class in the country.
