On NCAA transfer portal deadline day, a Maryland cornerback is reportedly among the players who will explore his options to play elsewhere in 2022. Lavonte Gater has reportedly entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal.

Gater appeared in all 30 games for Mike Locksley’s squad over the past 3 seasons. In his career, he has made 59 tackles with a pass breakup and a forced fumble.

Gater is entering his senior season. He also has the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver to return for a fifth year as a super senior. Gater has yet to use a redshirt.

As a recruit, Gater was a 3-star ATH, rated the 247Sports Composite’s No. 10 player from Washington, D.C. He chose Maryland over 6 other scholarship offers, including Rutgers.
