Colonial Forge (Va.) cornerback Daniel Ezeagwu committed to Maryland during his official visit Sunday to College Park, choosing Maryland over Virginia, Old Dominion and other schools.
“It was a good trip. It was fun,” he said. “I just knew that it was the place I wanted to be for my four years of college.”
While he was very positive about the trip, he apparently didn’t give those vibes off to the coaches, who were was a bit shocked when he committed Sunday morning.
“They were kind of surprised and excited at the same time,” said Ezeagwu, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound prospect. “I guess I wasn’t showing them any kind of emotion there, but I did. I really loved it. They were happy and excited.”
His possible future at Maryland, which the staff laid out for him, first caught his attention.
“I just liked the plan that they had for me and the defense and schemes they had. I can see myself playing that,” Ezeagwu said. “They talked about where they see me playing corner and showed me some film and gave me a good understanding of what I would be doing.”
In the end, though, the Terps provided the whole package, which helped propel them to the top of his list.
“They had a great football room for the players set up," Ezeagwu said. "They had a nice weight room, and I like their uniforms. Their education is definitely there. They had a city feel that I liked. It was just everything.”
Ezeagwu says he does not plan to take another visit before national signing day. He joined Nnamdi Egbuaba as Terps targets to commit over the weekend.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
