Dowdy is a 6-4, 222-pound linebacker out of Akron (OH) North High School. A couple weeks ago, we reported that Glenville (OH) defensive lineman Alex Pace was hearing from Maryland. It's evident with Dowdy coming in for a visit, the Terps' presence is building in Ohio in the first year of Randy Edsall's tenure.
Dowdy also doubles as a receiver for the Vikings. In fact, he's also taken some snaps at quarterback and running back this seaason. He helped his team to a 20-12 win over Akron East on Thursday night. Dowdy also took an official visit to Iowa State earlier this season.
