Three-star Va. safety Trey Rucker commits to Maryland

Three-star safety Trey Rucker committed to the Maryland football team Sunday, giving the Terps a boost in recruiting momentum less than a week from the start of preseason practice.

The Flint Hill (Va.) rising senior also claimed offers from Virginia, Indiana, North Carolina State and North Carolina, among others.

Rucker was named a first-team all-state defensive back in the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association’s Division I. He had 55 tackles (four for loss), three interceptions, seven passes defended and two forced fumbles on defense, along with 137 punt return yards.

Maryland offered the 6-foot, 190-pound Rucker on June 21, and associate head coach-wide receivers coach Chris Beatty, Rucker’s recruiter, was able to secure his third pledge in the Class of 2019. The Terps now have nine commitments this cycle.

Watch junior-year highlights of Rucker below.
