Tight end Maleak Bryant decommitted from Maryland on Thursday, one day after his primary recruiter, Walt Bell, also left the program.

The Georgia three-star prospect, a senior who did not sign a letter of intent during football’s early period, committed in May after receiving an offer in April. He cited, in part, the similarity of his high school’s offense to that of Bell, who’s headed to Florida State after two seasons as the Terps’ offensive coordinator.

Bryant, rated the No. 48 tight end in the 247Sports.com Composite rankings, has drawn recent attention from Central Florida and new coach Josh Heupel.

With his decommitment, the Terps have 23 projected members in their incoming class, 22 of whom already have signed. Four-star cornerback Noah Boykin remains the only unsigned commit. The regular signing period begins Feb. 7.
