Maryland has made the cut for the nation’s top-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the 2021 recruiting class.

On Monday, five-star quarterback Caleb Williams announced his top three schools. Maryland, LSU and Oklahoma made the cut for No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the 2021 class and the nation’s No. 5 overall prospect.

Williams is a native of Washington D.C., which has been a strong area of interest for Mike Locksley and his staff. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound quarterback received 22 offers on the recruiting front, but has narrowed down his interest to those three programs.

According to his 247Sports evaluation, Williams has drawn comparisons to Russell Wilson and could be a future first-round NFL Draft pick. He has the ability to make plays with his legs and feet and is one of the quickest quarterback prospects in the 2021 class.

Maryland is already off to a hot start with the 2021 recruiting class, but the addition of Williams would be huge. The Terps already have 11 players committed in this class and rank 14th nationally.
