Terps commit Sands to take 5 officials

Three-star all-purpose back Deltron Sands of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas committed to Maryland in May and plans on taking his official visits to there, Syracuse, UCF, Florida and Western Michigan.
The 5-foot-8, 173-pound Sands said he wasn't sure if there was any visit it that could sway him to reopen his recruiting process.
"I don't know," Sands said. "It would be really hard to change my mind at this point."
Sands plans to visit Maryland for its Oct. 4 game against Ohio State. He wasn't sure of the others but figured he'd visit Syracuse and UCF after the season.
The Terrapins had been recruiting Sands for five months before he committed.
"The coaches are cool," he said. "They're not just trying to be a coach, they're trying to be mentors in your life. I've just really like them since Day 1. We've had a cool relationship as soon as we met each other."
Sands has already been to Maryland for a camp in July and came away impressed.
"It was my first time there and it was great," he said. "It was awesome and just reinforced my decision."
Here's what Sands had to say about the other schools he plans to officially visit:
Florida: "They're SEC, big-time football and the coaches have been on me since my sophomore year."
Syracuse: "They have a dome and coach Casullo's got a hook-up with Syracuse, so I'll probably take a visit for him to check it out." (St. Thomas Aquinas coach Rocco Casullo is the son of former Syracuse assistant Bob Casullo.)
UCF: "Me and my boy Jordan Scarlett went there and had a good time."
Western Michigan: "Coach Wenger came from St. Thomas and he's really cool, so I at least want to take a look at them."
Last season Sands had 536 rushing yards and 9 touchdowns.
