Maryland loses commitment from QB via class of 2022
The last week has not been kind to Maryland coach Mike Locksley. Despite earning a trip to its first bowl game since 2016 with a 40-16 win over Rutgers last Saturday, the program is experiencing a not-so-insignificant string of departures. Several current players have put their names in the transfer portal, and the 2022 recruiting class just lost a quarterback.
AJ Swann, a 3-star native of Georgia, announced via Twitter Tuesday evening that he has de-committed from the program.

“I would like to thank the University of Maryland as well as Coach Locks and (OC/QB coach Dan) Enos for believing in me, but would most of all like to thank (inside linebacker coach) Brawley (Evans) for having my back and being with me throughout this whole process,” he wrote on Twitter. “With that being said, I would like to announce that I am de-committing from the University of Maryland. Thank you and good luck to the players at coaches at the University of Maryland.”
Swann is the 27th-ranked quarterback in his class and the 423rd player overall in the cycle, according to the 247Sports Composite. He has offers from Georgia Tech, Colorado, and Virginia Tech among others.
The 2022 class for Maryland now sits at just 12 known commitments with the departure, but it does still have a quarterback commit despite Swann’s exit. Jayden Sauray has been in the class since April 26, 2021. He’s a 3-star as well, rated as the No. 40 quarterback and the 683rd overall prospect, per the 247 Composite.
