Kennesaw (Ga.) Harrison linebacker Tim Cesa committed long ago to Maryland. Now that he's deep into the Georgia state playoffs, is he having any second thoughts?
"Nope," Cesa, a 6-foot-3, 232-pound three-star linebacker said. "I'm solid on Maryland. I'm a Terp."
Cesa officially visited Maryland back for the N.C. State game and said he came away even more solid about his decision.
"I saw what I already knew about Maryland when I was there," he said. "It's a great campus atmosphere and I can see myself on that field pretty quickly."
What he'll see himself doing Friday night is helping Harrison battle in the second round of the Georgia state playoffs. Cesa has racked up 130 tackles and he’ll need to put out one of his best performances since his five-star defensive teammate Paul Oliver will be sidelined for the rest of the season with a torn ACL.
“We like to stack eight or nine in the box and let Paul play out there in man-to-man,” Cesa said. “We’re going to have to step up and do what it takes to replace him and win the game.”
