Three-star cornerback Makinton Dorleant of Naples (Fla.) Lely has had a hectic couple of weeks. After de-committing from Wisconsin, Dorleant thought he found a new home at Maryland after an official visit last weekend. However, with the recent coaching upheaval at Maryland, Dorleant was once again left in a tough situation.
Despite the coaching change at Maryland, Dorleant still seems solid with his decision.
"As of now, I'm still strong with my decision on becoming a Terp," said Dorleant.

Reassuring Dorleant was a phone call he received from the Terps this weekend.
"Coach Brown called me," said Dorleant. "He just said to wait it out. A couple of other recruits also said that they're still solid, so I'm still solid. No matter what, I'm going to be a Terp next year."
The three recruits who Dorleant has spoken with who also reaffirmed their commitment to Maryland were Nigel King, Lukas Foreman and Jimmy Stewart.
"Yes, they're all solid too," he said.
Dorleant also looked back at his official visit to Maryland and his original decision to commit to the Terps.
"The campus is beautiful, it's large and everything you need is kind of close by," said Dorleant. "I committed to Maryland because the players were excellent and they showed me a lot of love, the facilities are great and just playing in the ACC."
