Offer No. 1 is in for an emerging wideout in Maryland. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder landed the scholarship just over a week ago from one ACC school.
"I got an offer from Maryland last weekend," Baltimore (Md.) Loyola 2012 wide receiver Jordan Floyd said. "I went up to the game against Morgan State and they offered there.
"I'm actually really excited, it's my first offer, it is kind of surreal. I still feel I like I need to get a feel for it and I'm going to try to get as many as I can."
Floyd was at Maryland most recently and discussed that trip further.
"I liked it a lot there," he said. "They have a real nice campus and the coaches are real friendly. I like the whole place a lot. I went to the camp last year and the year before that. It's obvious their coaches will not just play someone because of their name, but they'll play the best player."
Earlier this summer, Floyd took in camps at Temple and Virginia as well. He is considering trips to Virginia, Rutgers and Boston College sometime this fall.
Does he like anyone in the early going?
"Honestly, I haven't visited a lot of schools," he said. "I like Maryland, but I'm open right now. My brother goes to Georgetown. He actually went because of football, but isn't playing anymore."
Has Floyd thought about what he wants in a school?
"Not really," he said. "I just want the best possible education I can get. I want a good business school. I would also like to be in a more urban area."
After seeing limited time as a sophomore in backup duty last season, Floyd has busted out in three games this year with 250-yards receiving and four touchdowns.
"The season is actually going really well," he stated. "I'm real happy with where I'm at. I worked a lot of over the summer in camps and it's finally paying off.
"I think what stands out about me is that I'm a big wide receiver that's a good route runner."
A versatile prospect, Floyd also plays safety for Loyola.
"Actually, Maryland is recruiting me as an athlete and honestly, I don't care what position I play. I just want to play on the field and help the team out wherever I can."
