MD junior claims two offers

Offers are already picking up for a big 6-foot-3, 190-pound safety out of Maryland. The 2010 prospect already holds two offers and has a number of other colleges interested.
"I've got offers from Army and Maryland," Upper Marlboro (Md.) Wise junior safety Titus Till said. "I got the Army offer my 10th grade year. They thought I was a senior that year. Then they contacted my coach again this year and thought I was a senior. That was a really big offer, it was my first offer and I was the only person on my team getting recruited. My dad was in the Air Force, so I know the benefits of the academies, but I don't think I want to serve time.
"As for Maryland, that came out of the blue this year. It came recently and Coach Franklin told my coach they were offering. That was really big, Maryland is right around the corner and my parents want to see me play. All the people I know around here could come to my games and I could have extra support on my side."
Plenty of other colleges are interested in Till as well.
"Pittsburgh is showing interest, Virginia is, those are the main two showing the most that haven't offered," he said. "There are a lot of others sending letters like Georgia Tech, Syracuse, Tennessee, Penn State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, NC State and Duke."
Does Till like anybody?
"I've always been a Georgia and Georgia Tech fan," he said. "My dad is from Georgia and now works at the Pentagon. That's why he is up here. We've been down there a few times, my dad is a big Georgia fan. I've been watching Georgia games since I was a child."
Till is looking for a few things in his future school?
"I want to play football, that's the main thing for me," he stated. "Of course, school is there and I'm undecided on my major. I still have a lot of time to think about that. Mainly I want to have fun while I'm playing football. Location isn't a big factor either."
Till helped Wise to a 9-4 season this year while posting 67 tackles, one interception, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble. He earned first team all-county and all-metro honors.
What stands out about Till as a player right now?
"I think for me it's my composure during the game, if I make a mistake I usually don't think about it," he said. "I have a short term memory and keep going.
"My aggressiveness is good too and that helps in stopping the run."
