WCAC Targets Visiting Maryland Football Next Week

With the dead period set to end this Wednesday, prospects will begin traveling the country checking out schools with the start of spring ball now just weeks away.

Maryland will begin hosting local prospects this week as another local target has set a date to visit campus.

DeMatha (Md) three-star defensive tackle Emmett Laws will visit Maryland on March 8, he tells Inside the Black and Gold. Laws, who will visit one day after teammate Terez Davis makes it to campus, has been on the staff’s radar since last summer and made it into College Park for one game this past fall. Running backs coach Elijah Brooks has led the way for the standout Stag, who took notice of Maryland’s efforts on defense under Brian Williams.

“One thing I can say is Maryland is balling this year,” he added. “They’re having a good year this year. I was watching the [defensive] line but the defense was shut out. They were like that.” Laws admitted the fan attendance was a negative that caught his eye during his in-season visit, but his relationships with the staff have trumped those concerns.

“I love Maryland. They treat me right. I definitely like the people, the people are good. Maryland is good in my book.

USF, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Penn State and Boston College are among the schools that have extended offers. Laws will also look to Indiana, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and West Virginia this spring.

Laws is rated a three-star prospect and an 86 overall by On3, sitting as the 15th-best prospect in Maryland.
