Cornerbacks with size can be tough to find but they've become essential if you're going to have any hope of matching up with some of college football's bigger receivers on the outside.
Though Sean Davis plays safety at Washington (D.C.) Maret School he has been recruited to play cornerback at Maryland.
On Tuesday the 6-foot-1, 172-pound defensive back verbally committed to Randy Edsall's program.
"The day I stepped on campus and was able to be coached by Coach Edsall, Coach Johnson and Coach Bradford, I just really connected with them," Davis said.
"I did the first session of the camp, the one-on-ones, and I did well. Then I ended up hurting myself. From there I spent the next two or three hours just bonding with the coaches. That's when I knew I wanted to play for those guys."
While Davis has known he wants to be a Terp for a while now he was considering offers from Boston College and UConn as well.
He picked up his offer from Maryland shortly after the camp and waited about a month and a half before making his choice.
Davis is solidly committed to Maryland and will not be visiting any other schools. He has visited Maryland five or six times by his count and is very familiar with the school.
He told Rivals.com on Thursday that his height is one of the reasons the Maryland coaches are so intrigued by him as a corner prospect.
