Quince Orchard four-star RB Iverson Howard commits to Maryland

Maryland has landed its eleventh commitment in the 2025 class as Quince Orchard (MD) four-star running back Iverson Howard has gone public with his decision, committing to Maryland as Michigan and Florida State were among the schools involved in his recruitment.

Howard joins DeMatha (MD) Bud Coombs as the second running back in Maryland’s class.

Maryland joined Florida, Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, Penn State, NC State, Miami (FL), Ole Miss and Oregon in Howard’s top ten following his senior season as assistant James Thomas led the way with the 5-foot-10 running back. Howard is set to officially visit Maryland this upcoming weekend as the staff has rolled out the red carpet for the explosive local running back over the last year.

“Me and coach [Latrell] Scott have been talking for a while, Howard told IBG. “I’ve been talking to coach JT [James Thomas] for a long time, too. They’ve had a couple [of] young guys playing this year. That’s a big impact on my recruiting because I can be one of those young guys stepping in.”

Howard proved to be one of the most dominant running backs in Maryland during his junior season, rushing for over 1,000 yards while showcasing himself as an explosive weapon on special teams where he flipped the field for the Cougars’ offense all season.

With Roman Hemby and Colby McDonald both potentially entering their final season at Maryland, running backs coach Latrell Scott will work with a revamped running back room as Howard and Coombs join second-year running back Nolan Ray and freshman DeJuan Williams.

Howard joins Coombs, WR Justin DeVaughn, TE JT Taggart, OLs Ben Beymer and Kahlil Stewart, DLs Braheem Battles and Dante Recker, LB CJ Smith, DB Julien Horton and CB Jett White in Maryland’s 2025 class.

Iverson Howard is rated a four-star prospect and a 90 overall by On3, checking in as the ninth-best prospect in Maryland and the 23rd-best running back in the 2025 class.
