The DMV continues to be an area of strength for Mike Locksley and Maryland on the recruiting front.
Heading into the weekend, the Terrapins received another commitment in the 2021 class. Three-star running back Colby McDonald gave his verbal pledge to Maryland, becoming the 14th member to commit during this cycle. Hailing from Washington D.C., he’s the 12th player from the DMV (D.C., Maryland, Virginia) region to join Locksley and company.
McDonald made his announcement public with a post on Twitter on Friday. He is ranked as the No. 7 player out of D.C. and the No. 77 running back in 2021, according to 247Sports.

McDonald is a 5-foot-11, 200-pound back who received over a dozen offers during his recruitment. He received Power Five offers from Boston College, Indiana, Kansas, Louisville, Michigan, Minnesota, Ole Miss, Syracuse and Tennessee. He also had a handful of Group of Five offers.
With McDonald’s commitment, Maryland now has two running back pledges in the 2021 class. McDonald joins Antwain Littleton, another three-star back out of D.C.
The Terps currently rank fifth in the B1G with the 2021 recruiting class and sit 13th nationally.
