It didn't take long for Rahsaan Moore out of Upper Marlboro (Md.) Wise to make a decision. The 6-foot-2, 230-pounder pulled a new offer last week and quickly followed with a decision earlier today.
"I actually just committed about 25 minutes ago to Maryland," he said. "I officially called Coach Friedgen and told him I'm committing.
"He was excited. He was excited for me and my family and they were very interested in me and offered."

Moore officially got the offer last week from Maryland. What finally made them pull the trigger?
"They were keeping an eye on my grades," he said. "They also said I'm not their typical defensive end because of my height and weight or typical as a tight end. But I stepped up at fullback this year and did well. They felt I could play fullback there and also be a defensive linemen if I put on the weight. I'm versatile, but right now they are recruiting me as a fullback."
Meanwhile, the two-star prospect reflected on what he likes about Maryland.
"I think I like that they are family oriented," he said. "They made me feel like I was part of the team even though they just offered now. Back in 10th grade they included me in everything and I was part of the football family. I think that feel is what Maryland is the place for me. Plus, the coaching staff is great. I really like coach Franklin and Friedgen.
"I'm happy this is the place I'm going. I've wanted to go there since ninth grade. I'm glad I had the opportunity to play major Division I football and I'm looking to contribute and compete."
