2017 Maryland football commit charged after traffic stop in Georgia

In a week when two freshmen players on the Maryland football team, including second-leading rusher Lorenzo Harrison, were charged in a BB gun incident on campus earlier this month, a 2017 commit was arrested after a traffic stop in Georgia.

Jalen Browder, a three-star athlete from Dallas, Ga., was charged with speeding, driving with a suspended registration, driving without registration or tag, failure to show proper insurance and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana Thursday. He posted a little over $2,000 bond and was released.

Browder committed to the Terps after visiting College Park the weekend of Maryland's last victory, Oct. 22 over Michigan State. Browder also had offers from Louisville, Mississippi, Mississippi State and North Carolina State, according to 247Sports.com.

In accordance with NCAA rules, Maryland coach DJ Durkin is not allowed to comment about players who've committed to the program until they sign a national letter of intent Feb. 1.

Earlier this week, Maryland campus police charged Harrison and backup wide receiver DJ Turner with three counts each of second-degree assault and reckless endangerment, as well as one count each of threatening bodily harm to another student while on school property.
