On Saturday, Maryland lost a cornerback from its 2015 recruiting class when Kareem Ali decommitted.

Two days later, the Terps have replaced him with another cornerback.

Three-star corner Mike Majette from Woodbridge, Va., confirmed Monday morning that he has orally committed to Maryland.

“Maryland was close to home, and I really like the coaching staff and the opportunities that are available to me,” Majette said in a telephone interview. “Them entering the Big Ten was huge. That’s big-time football. The campus is lovely. So I just thought, ‘Why not Maryland?’”

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Majette is listed as an athlete by both Rivals.com and ESPN, but he said the Terps plans to use him at cornerback.

“I’m physical,” Majette said. “I’m aggressive. I can tackle. And I’ve got sure hands, so I can catch [interceptions].”

Majette said he also had offers from Boston College, Purdue, Indiana and Marshall, among others, but he decided to commit to Maryland after Ali decommitted.

Majette's commitment was first reported by Rivals.com.
