Maryland has picked up its 15th commitment for the 2013 class, its second from the state of Georgia. According to head coach Bob Sphire, Jalen Brooks (Suwanee, Ga./North Gwinnett) visited the College Park campus last week, and Sphire says the 6-foot-2, 220-pound outside linebacker has decided he would like to play for Randy Edsall and his Terrapins staff.
"Yes Jalen committed," Sphire said. "He went up there last week and visited."
Brooks had offers from several programs, including Air Force, Navy and Yale. Sphire said he had picked up some offers after visiting several schools during the last month. Brooks started his junior year as a hybrid outside linebacker/strong safety in the Bulldogs' 3-5 defense.
